Classes

Ballet

Classical Ballet classes are highly recommended for all students as ballet technique is the core to every dance style. It teaches good posture, strong technique, flexibility and discipline. Ballet as well as all styles helps boost your child's focusing ability and memory.

Toddler Ballet & Movement to Music

Starting your little one young is the perfect way to introduce them into a structured learning environment. Teachers use age appropriate music as well as interactive story telling and props to keep the littlies engaged and make sure they are having lots of fun. This class helps build your little one's confidence, focus and most importantly; their friendships. Our class will teach your child how to listen and follow the teacher's instructions along with the basic dance fundamentals.

Musical Theatre

During our musical theatre classes students learn acting, singing and dancing techniques all in the one class. This class is super fun, students get to use their imagination and creativity while learning new skills.

Cheerleading and Acrobatics

Cheerleading and Acrobatics is so much fun and is a great class to grow your child's confidence. Students works as a team and learn acrobatics, tumbling and cheerleading lifts as well as dance fundamentals and techniques.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop is a great style to shake up your child's skills by learning fun and funky choreography to music they love while inproving the fitness, confidence, memory and focus levels all at the same time.

Contemporary / Lyrical

Contemporary and Lyrical is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres. The Lyrical element in our class focuses on students connecting to the story line of their routines and telling the audience a story with their expression and performance.

Jazz

Our Jazz classes are fun, upbeat classes that teach our students strong dance technique, strength and flexibility while learning sharp, strong movements and choreography.

Ballroom

Ballroom dance is a great class for fitness, confidence and fun. It is is a great class to improve coordination, rhythm and learn different dance techniques. We cover styles of Cha Cha, Salsa, Merengue and Tango just to name a few. All styles are different but we focus on precision, technique and different rhythms. These classes are a super fun way to get you moving out on the dance floor solo or partnering. It’s a fun new way to get moving.

Tap

Tap is a fun style of dance which focuses on rhythm and musicality as well as technique. This class helps build your child's focus and co-ordination while having lots of fun!

Vocal Group

If your child loves to sing, this is the class for them! In Vocal Group your child will learn multiple singing techniques and learn to sing in a range on styles individually and as a group. This class is lots of fun and is a great class to help get your child out of their shell!

Stretch & Strength

Our stretch and strength class is designed for students aged 9+ and is highly recommended! The class is designed to help students strengthen their bodies and increase their flexibility using techniques which will help their dancing. Students also learn about the way their bodies work which helps them focus on correct posture and alignment and will help prevent injury.

Adult Classes

Whether you are someone who is looking for a new, fun way to get fit or you are wanting to reignite your childhood passion for dance our adults classes are for you. You will see on our timetable that we offer a range of dance and fun group fitness classes. Our classes are designed for beginners through to those who are more advanced. No standards or age limits apply!

Competition Classes

Is your child wanting to take dance a bit more seriously? We currently offer one on one dance or singing lessons, in all styles. During these classes students learn solos to perform at competitions and fun community events where they are supported by their teachers and peers. This gives them the opportunity to perform up on the stage and meet other dancers from across Melbourne. Our competition students gain a world of confidence up on stage and have lots of fun. I highly recommend competition classes if you have a child who loves to perform.
