The Jitterbugs program is for the little ones! From the age of 6 months, children learn to jump, move and have fun with parents and friends.
6 months - 18 months
As of 6 months babies can start learning to crawl and become mobile. During this time it is important to keep our children limber, as well as developing strength, endurance, rhythm, and of course, play! In this 45 minute class, with assistance from the teacher and accompanying parent, children will discover songs with basic dance moves, and explore different gymnastics equipment.
18 months - 2 1/2 years
By 18 months our little ones are starting to walk and want to explore everything around them. For 45 minutes they will be able to practice basic dance moves to songs adapted to their age group, and learn the basics of holding, climbing, rolling, jumping, and start developing basic flexibility (for example, reaching for the sky and touching their toes).
2 years - 3 years
We keep moving! At this age children are starting to learn independence but still want a parent present for support. While learning to listen and eventually do a class on their own, children start learning and remembering dance moves. During gymnastics a child gets to explore the space and learn to do exercises on their own such as learning a forward roll or walking on a beam. This is a great way to stimulate the mind and body and get them moving.
