Our new pre-school dance classes start Tuesday 26th April. We have 2 classes available:
Class 1 is from walking up to 3yrs old
Class 2 is for 3yr – 4yr olds
Our classes will cover lots of different dance styles using imaginative, fun lessons with props and new themes each half term.
Class 1 is a parent accompanied class so we hope you will all have lots of fun dancing with your little ones and creating lots of special memories.
Class 2 is optional for the parents to join in. We know how tough it can be for little ones to “go it alone” but we also understand when you’re trying to prepare your little ones for big school you might like to see how they cope on their own so we are open to either option… It’s your class!
Based at Knaresborough Methodist Church on Gracious Street, plenty of parking, a lovely cafe on site, accessible lift for buggies, changing facilities… a great venue!
Your first class is free and then payment is in 6 week blocks
(£6 per session)
Please contact Amy to book your free session and ask any questions:

Musicality Kids is a fun, flexible and interactive music class run by a local musician and mum, which introduces little ones to all aspects of music.

Suitable for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, each themed session uses a variety of props, instruments, lights and sensory toys to explore the four things that make music interesting; different beats, high & low, loud & soft and fast & slow.

Children also get to meet some orchestral instruments along the way.

Classes also explore different types of music (from Beethoven to the Beatles) and music from around the world. Although classes do incorporate some of the well-known children’s favourites, Musicality Kids uses a variety of material which makes each session different and engaging.

Musicality Kids runs a super flexible system, recognising the challenges of family life. Parents and carers can sign up for a 6 week flexipass that can be used any weeks over any term meaning you don’t lose your sessions if you can’t attend. Numbers are also capped meaning there’s no need to book each week. Siblings also get an incredible discount as Musicality Kids loves to see families bonding over music.

It’s just £39 for a 6 week flexipass.
Siblings are and £14 each.

The first session is always free to ensure the classes are right for you and your child before you commit.

Now in its fourth year, Musicality Kids has seen children go on to school and continue with music in a confident way, often picking an instrument with a great understanding of rhythm and pitch.

You can read an official Mumbler review of Musicality Kids here.

At a critical time in your child’s formative years, Rhythm Time offers a wide variety of activities. These activities help brain development, balance, concentration, listening skills and language which in turn help with reading, writing, maths, coordination and socialising.

Rhythm Time also helps stimulate your child’s imagination and also develops specific musical concepts such as rhythm, pitch and listening. It’s the perfect foundation for school and future music making!

Rhythm Time’s baby classes and Young Baby Courses will help the development of your baby from birth. Our Young Baby Courses have been created specifically for very young babies from birth to 6 months. These focus on developmental and multi-sensory activities specifically designed for very young babies and their early development.
