0 – Pre-walking
Teeny Tootz is a dance, movement and music class for babies, from birth to pre walking. The class is designed for both parent/carer and baby to enjoy together and provides many bonding opportunities.
The music is a mixture of popular music and kiddies favourites, picked to stimulate the body and brain. With the use of music, teamed with movement, disco lights and various sensory items and props your little one will love every minute… as will you.
Baby was rocked and soothed as early as the nine months inside mum’s tum, then from the early days and weeks after birth, baby will naturally still enjoy these rhythmic rocking and swaying motions. The movements of dance will mimic these motions and feel very familiar to baby. Dance provides important nerve endings in the brain with much needed stimulation. These important nerve endings are the crucial foundation for all learning stages in a babies brain.
Each time you dance with your baby the balance sensors in the ears send messages to the brain about all the movements that they are experiencing. This system is vital for posture, balance and coordination.
On top of all this, dance also improves and helps develop spacial awareness, rhythm, confidence, social skills, creativity, mood and musicality. We love the class and we are sure you will too!!
At Boogie Tootz we strive to create a fun and relaxed environment for everyone involved
Our Teeny Tootz classes are a great bonding experience for you and your toot, not to mention some time for you to socialise with other tootz and their adults too!
We always begin our classes with a time to say hello. The wee ones get the opportunity to interact with each other as well as our sensory area.
We’ll always warm up with a dance and then get the instruments out to get your wee ones grooving along to the music. Then it’s party time! The big lights will go out and our disco lights come on. The rest of the class is a mix of dancing with your wee one and lots of fun opportunities for you both to interact with various props and toys!
All this while listening to current pop music and some old favourites!
Finally, a little time to calm down and relax before saying goodbye to all our new friends
Your First Class!
A few tips for your first class with us…
- A lot of the session is spent on the floor. We will have blankets down, however you may want to bring your own blanket for your wee one to lie on.
- Please wear clothes you can move in, as the classes are movement based we hope everyone will be shaking their booty by the end of their first class!
- All trials must be booked in advance. If you are having any issues with our booking system, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via email, phone or Facebook!
- If something comes up, don’t panic! We understand your wee one isn’t always going to go along with your schedule! Just let us know, if we can help by rescheduling or transferring you to a different class, we will!
Last but not least, we hope you enjoy your class!
