Please contact us for a free trial class.

Giraffes and Calves is a creative and playful approach to dance and music education for children and their caregivers to enjoy together (from 0 - 5 years). Based on current research in early childhood education, this programme aims to foster an early love of music and dance while nurturing your child’s physical, cognitive and social-emotional development.

BENEFITS

There are numerous studies that have shown the many benefits of music and movement programmes in early childhood development…from enhancing cognitive skills, language acquisition, fine and gross motor development to social-emotional skills.

How we choose to enrich our children in the first few years of life, is critical to how they will grow and develop. Sharing a love of music and dance at an early age is one of the greatest gifts we can give our little ones during these fundamental formative years.

The Giraffes and Calves programme is run by Inger whose background lies in music, theatre and performance art. She currently teaches preschool music and drama in Pinelands and has training in the Intellidance® Method which is based on current best practices and recommendations in early childhood development and dance education.

"My 11-month-old visibly enjoys the classes, he is so cheerful and happy. He loves the hands-on instruments and moves along to the music. For me, the class is the most relaxing time of the week, I forget about everything else and solely concentrate on my child and myself. I love to see him so happy and I love the different type of bonding we experience together: We connect on a completely different level through music and dance, other than we do in every day situations. Inger is an amazing instructor! The way she offers the playing, the singing and the dancing feels so light and natural that I feel like a child again."– Baby Class Parent
