"More than 'just dance'. Mini Movers is the best half hour you can spend with your child ... It's amazing to watch them blossom with confidence and skill right before your eyes! Don't be surprised when they start telling you to point your toes ... "
"I never could have imagined how much Zara would gain from her years of dancing with Miss Nyree when she started as a Mini Mover at 3. It always amazes me the confidence she has when she dances. Miss Nyree has nurtured not only Zara’s dance skills and technique over the years but the love and joy of dancing and it shows when her students perform. We’ve had so many people ask where Zara dances and we couldn’t recommend Mini Movers highly enough"
"Mini Movers is a fun, interactive class and a great experience for a parent to share with their child. It's not just about movement, rhythm and music, it's an opportunity for children to appreciate that learning can be fun, a place where their imagination challenges their physical capabilities. A whimsical visit to the circus might involve dramatically dressing in extravagant costumes, climbing a ladder, balancing on an imaginary high-wire (all props being imaginary!) and exploring the movements and sounds of various animals through dance. Nyree's depth of experience in dance and working with children is evident in the speed and ease in which she adapts each class to the questions, comments and interests of the children. Nyree makes each child feel special and inspires them to participate with enthusiasm."
WHAT WE DO

Your tiny tot will be counting the sleeps until their next dance class with all the fun, groovy moves that ‘Mini Movers' incorporates.
