So why, with all these setbacks and in such uncertain times, did I commit to this process?
I have always advocated that dance classes offer children so much more than technique: confidence, creativity and expression, social interaction, coordination, and special awareness - the list goes on!
One of the things that I love about Tiny Toes Ballet classes is the emphasis put on the development of these life skills – through the medium of dance.
During those first few months of lockdown, at home with my little family, surrounded by our ‘things’, I craved those interactions and experiences for my children. I am sure I was not alone in that shift from valuing the things we ‘have’ to really appreciating the value of the things we can ‘do’.
I strongly believe that it is more important now than ever before that we can safely offer our classes to you and your little ones, not only for all the benefits listed above, but also to share a little bit of wonder and magic with our dancers every week during these unprecedented times!
