Gateshead Central and East

Hi, my name is Melanie and I am the founder of Little Movers UK.

I am also the class leader for Little Movers Gateshead Central and East.

I am a qualified dance teacher and have a true passion for encouraging children to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.

I started Little Movers in 2006 and despite its growth and success as a franchised company my love for teaching and working with the wonderful families in Gateshead keeps me teaching my own Little Movers Classes.

At Gateshead we offer Baby and Little Movers and also offer Move on Up classes for Little ones who are ready to attend their first dance class.

We also work in partnership with Gateshead Schools Sports Partnership to offer Early Years PE. Our classes are exciting and I am very proud to say that families book term after term and child after child! Every day at work for me is full of fun, I often say there’s no better job out there.

If you would like to bring your little one to a class where every child really does matter and every child is given their opportunity to shine then please get in touch. I look forward to having fun with you soon

Our strongest testimonial is our Little Movers keep coming back for more fun. They progress to join our sister company Snapdragon Arts which provides Dance, Singing and Drama!

Our contracted work continues to come in and we don’t advertise to childcare providers, they contact us. Our reputation is our advertisement. We continue to grow and have become so successful that we have a bigger team of staff and have recently opened our head office!

“At Little Movers every child is valued, celebrated and allowed their moment to Shine in whatever way that may be!”

“I think the sessions are brilliant, very fun and children encouraged throughout.”

“My child has enjoyed the experience, think it was really good for behaviour and the transition to nursery will make a big difference.”

“Little Movers provides Freya with a fun way to engage in physical activity through play and dance. The design of the classes and their input have played a significant part in developing her co-ordination, learning and dance skills, dramatically increasing her confidence and her ability to interact with other children and adults.”
