10 Reasons To Enrol Your Child In Tiny Movers Classes at Danzart

At Danzart, we offer classes in the exciting Tiny Movers program because we understand the importance of music and dance in developing little ones under five years old.



If you've ever watched toddlers or preschoolers moving joyfully to music, you quickly understand why the benefits of dance in early childhood cannot be underestimated. Dancing to music is more than just a fun activity for children. It's an opportunity to express emotions and build self-esteem.


These fun and lively music and movement classes for 2 – 5-year-olds provide a relaxed, friendly atmosphere ideally suited to this age group. It's all about exploring the world through a love of music and getting active  — and parents and carers are welcome to join in the fun!


Read on for ten reasons to enrol your child in Danzart Tiny Movers classes.




  • School readiness – Dancing to music in early childhood helps the mind and bodywork as one, assisting child development and intellectual, social-emotional, gross motor, language and literacy skills.


  • Communication – Music and dance help 2 – 5-year-olds develop their language through movement. Children learn about meaning, story and emotion through Tiny Movers. They better understand themselves and those around them as they interact with other little ones in the program.


  • Self-expression – A mood filter, music has the power to complement or change a child's mood in an instant! Music, singing and dancing are significant for children's self-expression; they can calm or soothe. Toddlers and preschoolers are sometimes unable to communicate their feelings through words. Tiny Movers provides a healthy outlet for emotions while building self-esteem.


  • Physical development – Listening to music and moving helps toddlers and preschoolers not only develop rhythm, they learn to move to a beat. Music, stories, props and instruments encourage a sense of fun whilst our class learns gross motor skills such as balancing, jumping, hopping and galloping. Children become more robust and flexible as they use their bodies in different ways.


  • Creativity – An essential aspect of the Tiny Movers program is the beautiful way it fosters creativity in participants. While children are supported to move in different ways, they are encouraged to use their imagination.


  • Spatial awareness – As children dance, sing and learn to play music, they also understand more about what their bodies can do! Fun movement helps develop skills in spatial awareness as children better comprehend their relationship to space. Through this early childhood dance program, participants gain the confidence to coordinate and control their bodies.


  • Listening and understanding – Children learn life skills through the program while having fun. Learning to listen and interpret body language improves relationships and reduces misunderstandings.


  • Social skills and friendship – Tiny Movers provides an early opportunity for your child to learn how to interact with other children, objects and the world around them.


  • Self-awareness and self-control – Toddlers and preschoolers quickly understand their bodies and themselves as they learn what they can do! The Tiny Movers program assists children in safely expressing their feelings through movement.


  • Health – Tiny Movers is a highly physical, healthy activity involving many super fun coordination exercises. Regular participation in the program can help improve overall cardiovascular health, correct poor posture and improve muscle tone.
