We combine this with learning how to engage with the movement being performed to achieve a performance which is engaging and connects with the audience.

Our Dance Squad Pre-School explore action, space, dynamics, and relationships through a termly storybook. Through dance performance and exploration, key themes within the story are explored, showcasing technique, storytelling, characterisation and musicality.
Our Dance Squad Early Movers are split into two groups – birth to crawling (non-walkers), and crawling to walking (walkers). Through this movement and music programme, our Early Movers will develop cross and fine motor skills, movement pathways within the brain, and core stability skills within a fun and interactive session. At the same time positive relationship with parent/scarers will be built through mirroring, eye contact, tactile movement and relaxation activities.

"Online Sing Squad is a ray of sunshine in these unprecedented times. Beccy’s upbeat spirit and positive attitude makes the session really fun and a great focus for my daughter. We’re already looking forward to our next session!"
"I’ve been enjoying Harmonix from the beginning. It’s a great place to have a good sing, be a bit silly and learn all in one place! In these strange and unusual times, I was beginning to miss friends and normality. Thankfully, Beccy was quick to move sessions online and for a few hours on a Sunday evening we can escape. It’s a great way to manage stress and anxiety too and welcome more than ever!"
"Having Beccy teach me is the highlight of my week. My voice is being pushed in all the right places and I am being given the confidence to do things I didn’t think I could. I cannot recommend this lovely lady enough offering her magic and vast knowledge to all ages!"
"Knowing my child can learn to sing with someone like Beccy is really exciting. Not only is she an amazing and experienced musician and teacher, but she cares about good vocal health which is something I think is hugely important – especially in children."
"Beccy Hurrell is a dedicated teacher who is deeply committed to learning new techniques and strategies for teaching. She is committed to education and is passionate about access to education. Her students quite rightly adore her as she is warm, empathetic and nurturing."
"Beccy is such a great role model for young women. She is a fantastic teacher and academic. Would highly recommend!"
"We have been so pleased to see the progress our daughter has made with Beccy and the variety of techniques that she uses. To see how her confidence has grown where she is able to question and discuss with Beccy about how she feels on certain exercises and how she will embrace those that also fall outside her comfort zone. It is a real partnership in every sense and the learning book used each week is a fantastic tool that makes the student take time to reflect on their week and practice."
All sessions are back in person but you have the option to join online as we embrace hybrid working.
Following our risk assessments our studios are cleaned and ventilated after every session.
