Handstands, cartwheels, teddy bear stands, splits, leg mounts, leaps, kicks, core strength, posture, headstands, crab walks plus so much more.
Your child's stamina, strength, flexibility, resilience and passion for dance will grow each week as they are encouraged to try new things and learn that they are capable of so much more than they may have thought.
