Groove child Syllabi BREAKDOWN



3-5 yrs


5-7 yrs


7-9 yrs

The JUNIOR syllabus works to enhance children’s understanding of musicality, rhythm, character and emotion, nurturing their confidence to express themselves from young age.



10-12 yrs


13-15 yrs

The INTERMEDIATE syllabus builds on the junior levels, encouraging self-expression through dance, adaptability to music and style, and building improvisation and choreography skills.



16-18 yrs

Due to launch end of 2019 the SENIOR syllabus reflects the growing maturity of the teens we teach, developing their confidence and versatility as future performers, choreographers & dance leaders.

There is no obligation for licensees to offer all THREE syllabi or take all THREE syllabi courses. It’s completely down to personal preference whether you choose to only offer the Junior levels at your school, the Junior & Intermediate, or Junior/Intermediate/Senior, we just ask that all teachers begin with the Junior Syllabus before progressing to ensure the ethos and progressions are fully understood.

Groove Child really does fulfil it’s promise to appeal to both the recreational and advanced dance students. For the ‘one class a week’ child it boosts confidence, self-awareness and promotes friendship. For the child wanting to work towards exams and performances it encourages a deeper awareness of how they express and communicate emotion when they perform.

"I love the freedom of movement Groove Child allows, and it's work on developing expression and emotion..."
