Little Bear Feet with Melody Bear and friends is the perfect introduction to dance and movement for little girls and boys age 18 months upwards. The joys of dancing and singing are shared by teacher, parent and toddler as together they join Melody Bear and her friends on their journeys to Nursery Rhyme Land. How will she get there? Will it be by airplane, car or flying carpet? Who will she meet? Will it be Humpty Dumpty or Mary Mary Quite Contrary?
In recent years, we've learned a lot about how the brain develops. Babies are born with Delightful interpretations of traditional, familiar nursery rhymes together with new music and songs inspire children's natural zest for dance, movement and self expression. The use of props, mime, songs and rhymes enrich and charm the budding dancers as they take their first steps into the magical world of Melody Bear.
Little Bear Feet classes are the first step in the Melody Movement dance program. In addition to movement skills, children are introduced to other fundamental curriculum learning skills such as counting, colour and shape recognition, vocabulary and language skills.
The strength of the system is that learning is achieved through imaginative movement which is enjoyable and fun. Melody Movement provides every child with the opportunity to discover and fulfill their own potential whilst nurturing creative development.
All of the Little Bear Feet teachers are qualified dance teachers and hold the specialist MMEL Associate Award or above. The MMEL Associate Award is a preschool dance teaching award in which the teachers study, child development, links to the EYFS, classroom observation and teaching skills and other skills relevant to this age group.
