Our highly experienced, passionate, and dynamic teaching team, handpicked for their enthusiasm and dedication, infuses each class with contagious energy. And the way we see it, every dance step is a chance for freedom, a joyous celebration of movement. But while fun is at the core of our approach, we also focus on developing technique, strength, and flexibility. This balance ensures our dancers not only improve their dance skills but also cultivate qualities like confidence, focus, determination, and creativity.
One of the most beautiful aspects of dance is its capacity to highlight individuality. At Intune, we celebrate this diversity, tailoring our approach to each dancer's unique goals and interests. Whether that's discussing career aspirations in dance or sharing a laugh about a favourite pair of socks, we delight in getting to know our dancers and fostering their growth both in and out of the dance studio.
The world of Intune is always in motion, with performances, trips, and workshops adding vibrancy to our schedule, and collaborations between younger and older dancers creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and inspiration. We can't wait to introduce you to the unique rhythm of our community.

The Benefits of Starting Dance Classes at Age 3
Starting dance classes at age 3 offers a multitude of benefits that can enrich a child's growth and development. At this age, children are like sponges, ready to absorb new experiences and ideas. Dance can be a fantastic way to tap into this innate curiosity, nurturing their physical, emotional, and cognitive growth.
Physical Development: Dance is a fun and enjoyable way to develop essential motor skills in young children. The dynamic movements involved in dance promote strength, balance, and coordination. It also lays the groundwork for good posture and a healthy relationship with physical activity.
Emotional and Social Skills: Attending dance classes can significantly enhance a toddler's emotional intelligence. The interactive environment encourages children to express their feelings and emotions through movement. Furthermore, being part of a class builds valuable social skills like cooperation, patience, listening, and understanding others' emotions.
Cognitive Benefits: Dance classes can be a powerful tool for cognitive development in toddlers. The combination of music, movement, and rhythm can stimulate brain development and improve memory. It also introduces children to concepts like counting, patterns, and sequencing, which are integral to their early education.
Creativity and Confidence: Dance offers a creative outlet for children to explore and express themselves. It nurtures their imagination, encourages them to think out of the box, and build their self-confidence. The pride they feel when mastering a dance move or performing in front of others can be incredibly empowering.
At Intune Dance and Movement, we understand the potential of dance to be a transformative force in the life of a child. We believe that every 3-year-old stepping into our classes embarks on a journey of discovery that is as much about themselves as it is about the joy of dance.

How Regular Dance Classes Can Boost Your 3-Year-Old's Development
Committing to regular dance classes can significantly boost your child's development in ways that extend far beyond the dance studio. The consistency provides a structure that toddlers thrive in and offers a multitude of physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional benefits.
Physical Growth: Regular dance classes promote the development of fine and gross motor skills, balance, and coordination in toddlers. It instils a love for physical activity early on, fostering healthy habits that can last a lifetime.
Cognitive Enhancement: Dance classes stimulate brain development by challenging toddlers to remember steps and sequences, enhancing their memory and problem-solving skills. Moreover, understanding rhythms and patterns nurtures their mathematical thinking.
Socio-Emotional Development: Regularly attending dance classes helps 3-year-olds learn how to interact with peers, take turns, and work as part of a team. It also instils a sense of discipline and focus. Moreover, the joy of achievement, when they learn a new move or perform a routine, builds self-esteem and confidence.
Creativity and Imagination: Dance is an outlet for creative expression. Regular participation encourages children to use their imagination, tell stories through movement, and express their feelings, fostering their creative and emotional intelligence.
Routine and Structure: Having a regular schedule for dance classes provides a comforting routine for toddlers. It gives them something to look forward to every week and helps them develop time management skills from a young age.
At Intune Dance and Movement, our structured yet fun classes provide the consistency needed to reap these developmental benefits. We're here to ensure that every 3-year-old can grow, learn, and, most importantly, enjoy the beauty of dance.
