About Little Moves
Little Moves was founded in 2010 and is directed by Susan O’Shea and Maddison Taylor.
The Little Moves program was developed to share Susie and Maddi’s love of dance through carefully crafted, age appropriate exercises and activities. Little Moves’ curriculum focuses on developing gross motor skills, coordination, musicality, concentration, social skills and confidence, in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Little Moves lessons reflect current research into effective techniques for kinaesthetic learning. They believe in creating smart, school prepared, dancers, who can problem solve and think analytically and creatively.
Little Moves’ highly qualified teachers are friendly, nurturing and inspiring, and cater for all ability levels, harnessing the individual skills and strengths of every child. They cherish play, imagination and really invite students to participant as active learners each lesson.
Being A Little Mover
There Are No Formal Uniforms At Little Moves
Little Moves believes every student should be free to dress how they like, and how they are comfortable. The team love seeing the kids’ sparkly tutus, bows and clips, rainbow skirts and unicorn patterned socks!
You Are Encouraged To Watch!
These classes are age appropriate. Little Moves kindly invite parents to view their child’s class. They believe it’s important for you to see your child as an active learner and how they respond to activities and stimulus.
Your Child is Respected and Appreciated
At Little Moves, students are invited to participate in conversation regarding the themes they’re exploring. Each lesson commences with a ‘ballet balloon’, where students and teachers say good morning/afternoon to each other.
Age Appropriate Philosophy
Little Moves classes are relaxed and nurturing. At the end of each term the students perform a Presentation Class, showcasing the content they have learned – no costumes, no makeup, no huge stage and bright lights.
From Little Moves Families
‘Grace has absolutely loved doing ballet with Little moves. The program you have created, and your dance teachers are world class. Grace has really come out of her shell, as a result of the warm unique, inclusive environment in the classes.’ – Little Moves Mum of 1 Student
‘The classes are a mixture of fun and learning through storytelling and role playing. The end of year recital is a very low-key event with the children enjoying dancing of stage for their dances. We love that the costumes are not only beautiful but affordable and excessive stage makeup is not necessary.’ – Little Moves Mum of 3 Students
‘Little Moves is such a wonderful experience for our daughter. It is far beyond a class or activity. It is treasured time for our girls to explore their own confidence. For our daughter with special needs, the care and warmth of the whole team gives her more access to the positivity and power of dance than we could have ever imagined.’ – Little Moves Dad of 2 Students
