S J Dance in Schools and Nurseries

At S J Dance we offer our expert, professional teachers out the community and local schools. With schools wanting to encourage fitness and exercise into their extra-curricular activities, dance has become a strong focus for after school clubs and covering PPA time.

S J Dance offer a wide range of dance skills that can be taught in main stream school including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Street Dance, Kids Zumba, Acro Dance and our specialised nursery/pre-school syllabus of Melody Bear Movement.

Specialised Nursery Syllabus.
The  Melody Bear Movement classes encourage motor and social skills from a young age. Dancing with Melody Bear and Milligan Bear develops children’s motor skills from as young as 18 months old. Dancing with colourful ribbons, parachutes, bubbles, instruments and using the creative imagination of our professional teachers helps bring a smile to each child's face. We have also found that this syllabus is very beneficial to special need children who can express themselves through song and dance.

S J Dance ensures that both boys and girls receive the same opportunities, presenting our ‘Star Dancer of the Week’ certificate at the end of every session and stickers to reward each child for working so hard within the class and wanting to return next week.
