Age-appropriate dance classes in Bournemouth

Dance classes for all ages and abilities

Footprints is a dance school that focuses on the self-esteem and spritual growth of each individual child!

Providing your child with a healthy lifestyle and helping them to grow their faith, can be tricky with everything else to squeeze in!  In our Footprints family, your children will enjoy a great workout for their body and spiritual curiosity, whilst making friends, building self-esteem and learning choreography.

There is no pressure of exams or competitions and we love to share our efforts with family, friends and the community in showcases!

All of our current classes take place at the Winton YMCA – click here for directions!

Mini-Footprints for Under 5's

A unique, creative movement + attachment/trust building early years group, which offers child-led learning through imaginative play + props.

This class has been designed to support the important early years stages, of attachment bonding, development through the EYFS and igniting positive brain neuropathways.

These sessions offer contact dance with the caregivers, releasing oxytocin for both, as a stress reliever and bond strengthener, which both are beneficial towards positive mental health. Caregivers are encouraged to interact and explore touch with their child(ren), giving you special bonding time, before the rest of your busy day!

Open ended props encourage child-led play, alongside various styles of music, where there are never right/wrong ways to dance, getting the whole family involved!

This is a very friendly and safe space, where there is plenty of freedom to be creative.

Each session is planned by Footprints’ fully qualified primary and early years teacher, choreographer, dancer and Mumma to support your child’s age appropriate developmental stage of social, emotional and physical skills, whilst offering tips on gentle parenting and attachment methods.
