Your Dance Journey Starts Here.....
Kids Kan Dance specialise in classes for the younger dancer. With classes for children aged 18 months to 9 years we have something truly magical to offer your little one as they take their first steps on their dance journey.
With just the right amount of structured learning and creative movement combined our classes are specially created to offer the fundamental basics young dancers need to know as well as keeping their creative spark alight.

We do things a little differently......
At Kids Kan Dance we pride ourselves in building confidence in children and believe that dance should be fun as well as educational. We think that children should not be limited to learning just one particular style in their weekly class. We cover a variety of dance styles in every class and these are all tied into our themes which change every 2-3 weeks in Dance with Mummy, Twinkle 2's and Prima Pre-schoolers.
When children move through into our Inspiring Infants and Junior Dance classes we concentrate on teaching specific genres of dance over a set number of weeks, whilst also making sure the dancers are still covering the basics they have learnt over their previous classes.
This fresh approach enables us to introduce children to the diverse world of dance whilst still concentrating on the fundamental basics they need to know.
If your child decides to join our M-powering Performers class alongside their dance class they will get the opportunity to dance, sing and act. They will also work on a termly performance which is written by the Kids Kan Dance teachers. We cover important topics such as confidence and bullying in these performances and aim to help children learn about these tough subjects in a fun and inspiring way.
The 'Confident Dancer Steps'
At Kids Kan Dance we pride ourselves in building confidence in children through our special ‘Confident Dancer Steps’ program which was created by Kids Kan Dances’ Founder Katie, a once shy little dancer who understands that sometimes the desire to dance can be overshadowed by social and other forms of anxiety. These steps are followed in all our classes, from day one. We just love watching your little ones grow in both their dance ability and confidence, we believe in ‘boosting confidence through performing arts’ and welcome talking with parents and carers about how these steps can help even the shyest children progress. For other parents’ thoughts on how these steps have helped their children just read some of the many testimonials you see scrolling by throughout the website.
