Bollywood Dancing

Bollywood dancing is an energetic form of exercise that can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination and improve overall cardiovascular health.It also helps children improve their social and communication skills, they learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends. Dance can also help to alleviate fears related to performing in front of an audience.

Ceramics

Ceramics is relaxing and fun for all, I encourage a welcoming environment that inspires creativity. Ceramics caters for the beginner to the imaginative. Students create master pieces to keep for ever or they make wonderful gifts. The participants learn about colours, brushes, paints. and brush strokes. The children learn about encouraging others and sharing. Ceramics is a wonderfully meditative experience.

Lego Engineering

Getting started with LEGO materials in the classroom with young children can be exciting and challenging. LEGO materials are a great platform for introducing young children (ages 5 - 9) to science and engineering concepts rather than just playing. In LEGO Engineering, students will try and accomplish specific tasks and solve problems. LEGO lets kids exercise creativity and learn some fundamentals of engineering.
