Event description


LP Dancing Tots Community Dance Classes for Children

Children will love these fun, creative and educational dance classes at Rising Sun Countryside Centre, Whitley Road, Benton NE12 9SS (Classes are held in the Holystone Room, which is located down the corridor opposite the Cafe in the Countryside Centre main building)

The programme has been specifically designed to support the seven areas of learning and development in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Each session focuses on developing the child’s gross motor skills, co-ordination, creativity, and physical fitness as well as improving listening and communication skills.

Children are encouraged to move creatively and spontaneously using different cross-curricular themes and props such as ribbons, scarves and pom poms to aid
 as inspiration and help guide their movements. Children also learn basic dance steps and actions that accompany traditional nursery rhymes, popular children’s songs, cultural dances and Brain Dances.

Class Themes vary each week and include themes such as the following:

  • A Trip Around the World Celebrating International Dance Day

  • The Circus

  • Beside the Seaside (Special May Half Term Session - older school age siblings are welcome to join in also at the drop in rate).

  • Princess & Pirates

  • Teddy Bears Picnic

  • Under the Sea

  • Mini Beasts

  • Superheroes

  • Giraffes Can’t Dance

  • The Gruffalo

  • The Jungle Book

  • Dance Classes

Class Dates and Timings

Fridays 1.45pm to 2.30pm

A 10 week block of classes from Friday 28th April to Friday 30 June 2017


Suitable for toddlers who can walk with support through to children who are 4 years of age. Older siblings are welcome during school holiday classes at the sibling rate (see rates below).

Saver - Pay Termly Only £50 for 10 weeks

1. Pay £50 to attend the whole ten week block of classes. If you are joining part way through a block you can still join the block by paying £5 x the number of weeks remaining. This works out at only £5 per class compared to the drop in rate of £5.50. Siblings can join a block for only £30 when their sibling pays the full block rate. This is equivalent to £3 per week. The sibling rate to pay by the week is £3.50.

The sessions are delivered by Eve Gow, a member of LP Dance in Education team. If you wish to join the block part way through or would like more information on the classes please call Grace Tel: 07500008375 or email laura.prince@lpdanceineducation.com We can organise for you to pay for the remainder of the block via eventbrite using a credit or debit card.

What if I miss a week?

If you miss one week due to sickness, LP Dance will offer you up to one free session on a future course block.

Paying Weekly

If you are paying weekly rather than for a block of ten classes, the price is £5.50 per class.

There is a Sibling Rate of only £3.50 with a sibling paying the full rate. Older siblings are also welcome during school holiday classes.

Simply select and pay for the week you would like to pay for, additional booking fees apply.

All payments must be made online and in advance of the class.

No payments will be accepted on the day.
