Toddler and Pre-school Creative Moves Class
Dance and music class for children age 18 months to 4 years and their grown up. Live fiddle music! Reduced price for additional siblings.
The perfect weekly class to get your child moving in creative ways.
Children will learn about dance, drama and music through games, songs, live music and play. Grown ups and children work as a pair - it's a great work out for all, and helps the child develop confidence, coordination and creativity!
Led by Jo Jeffries - choreographer, musician and co-director of award winning Edinburgh Youth Theatre - this class has previously been exclusive to Dance Base, Scotland's National Centre for Dance. Now Jo is bringing this wonderful and unique experience to Leith!
Please make sure you buy a sibling ticket if you are bringing more than one child
