About Primary Moves

Primary moves provides dancers who have performed and choreographed professionally and want to pass their passion onto the next generation.

They are highly professional in their conduct and their classes are fast paced, fun and informative. At the end of every class the children will have worked physically (building stamina and dance technique) and creatively (making decisions on how to move their bodies to express their ideas).

Each dance teacher tailors their working day to the needs of the school. In a full day usually 6 classes can be taught (please see example day). Most schools use our teachers for PPA cover although a few will use the lessons as training for their teachers to observe and take notes.
