Terrific Tykes (Independent movers 11-30 months)

The word tyke means “one who is determined”. If your little tyke is busy, on the move and determined to learn new things this is the class for you! Now that your little one is off and exploring the world independently, join us each week while we explore dance, music and movement in a safe nurturing environment.  Using the research and teachings of Anne Green Gilbert we will explore new dance and movement concepts each week that support your Tyke’s determination to explore, learn and grow physically, cognitively, and social-emotionally.

Dancing together with your child while exploring movement activities and practicing skills is not only lots of fun but very educational. Activities are taught that can be explored at home.

*** To keep our class sizes small, please keep to one caregiver per child (caregivers are welcome to switch from week to week) and no extra siblings. If you have a baby, he/she must stay in a bucket seat or a carrier. Thank you for your understanding. ***

What to Wear:

  • Comfortable, non-restrictive clothing (leggings, t-shirts, etc.)
  • Grippy socks, bare feet, dance shoes, or indoor running shoes

Cinch Sacs/Prop Bags

For health and safety, we are no longer prop sharing in our classes. The use of props is integral to our programming. We have worked with our suppliers to bring in enough props to make individual student bags. Prop bags will come in their own J’Adore branded cinch sac labelled with your child's name and will include the items listed below. Prop bags will be available for purchase at the time of registration and will be waiting for your child on the first day of their class. Prop bags will be sold for $30+GST.

  • 2 jingle bells
  • 2 dancing scarves
  • 1 ribbon wand
  • 2 rhythm sticks
  • 1 bean bag
  • 2 egg shakers
  • Hand sanitizer

Registrations can be completed online or in person at the studio or over the phone (provided you already have an account with J'Adore Dance). Payment must be received at the time of registration. 

Prorating: Prorating class registration fees will not begin until week 5 of the session. Registering for a class before week 5, you are eligible for 3 make-ups to be used in any of our sessional programming within the current session. Please note that prorated classes and make-up classes are subject to availability. 

Registrations cancelled before the first class are subject to a $25 + GST administrative fee. No refunds will be issued after the start date of the class, however, we will issue credit valid for 12 months from the start date of the canceled program if the registration is canceled before the third class of the session. No refunds or credit will be granted after the start of the third class other than for serious illness or injury with medical documentation provided. Cancellation requests must be received in writing (info@jadoredance.com) and can only be processed by management. Credits are non-transferable and non-refundable.
