What is the Groove Child Dance Syllabus?

Groove Child Licensed Syllabus One Day Course - Dance Teacher FAQs

Groove Child is a rich and creative dance syllabus that offers qualified/established dance teachers a way to deepen children’s musicality, self-expression, and belief in themselves through celebrating their individuality through dance and imaginative movement.

Groove Child syllabus courses allow licensed teachers to offer Groove Child classes at their school in addition to their current timetable, to help students through their dance journey from age 3 right up to age 18 explore their love of dance in a way that encourages ‘whole child’ development and nurtures creative skills that help them develop as people as well as dancers.

The younger Groove Child levels work to deepen children’s sense of musicality, feeling, and confidence, leading to the older levels that stretch senior dancers to increase their understanding of dance as a profession (in all its forms) and the skills they will need to succeed, technique, adaptability, resilience, work ethic, improvisational skills, choreographic skills, and authentic performance expression.

Groove Child is a licensed syllabus, not a franchise, so it has the huge benefit of being much more affordable and offers teachers 3 syllabi / levels to add to their student timetable; Junior syllabus 3-9yrs, Intermediate syllabus 10-14yrs, and Senior syllabus 15-18yrs. The syllabus has been carefully created to allow teachers the perfect balance between structure and creativity, allowing you to shape the classes to suit your personality and style as a teacher.

As with any progressive syllabus, each Groove Child level builds on the principles of the previous and students that work through grades have the potential to develop as truly expressive performers – and highly creative beings!
