Mini Starz Ballet and Tap

ages 3-4 years

The DTA Mini Starz classes are ballet and tap combination classes.  Children continue to follow the Adventures of Melody Bear developing their dance moves as well as exploring other fundamental learning skills such as counting, colour and shape recognition, vocabulary and language skills.  Children also collect stickers and work towards gaining medals which are presented in front of parents on their child's 'Special Day'. 

Rising Starz Ballet & Tap

ages 4-5 years

Rising Starz build on the foundations learnt in our Mini Starz class.  Children learn the basic steps of classical ballet and tap whilst following Melody Bear's adventures.  We continue to develop children's motor skills, concentration and confidence.  This is the final stage of the Melody Bear programme. We celebrate the end of an era at the end of the year with the Moving on Trophy presentation.
