Little Dance

With a huge range of classes and a goal to inspire small steps and big dreams in every student, your child will feel included and supported here at Wellington Dance.  If you'd like help finding the perfect class, just contact our friendly team.

Let us gracefully guide your child’s first steps in ballet


Be prepared to be delighted as your child tiptoes into the studio, bounces with happiness and leaps high in the air!

With teachers who encourage each little step and nurture your little one’s big dreams, week after week their confidence will grow in this special class for 3 to 4 year olds.

Your child will love the enriching curriculum designed to help them fall in love with ballet, and delight in the energy of the beginner jazz dance steps tucked into each Little Dance class.

At our Thorndon studio, you can watch the class through our large two-way viewing windows/mirrors, and at all our locations, we welcome parents to settle their child in for their first few classes as they get to know their new teacher.

Your child will finish each dance year with a performance.  We alternate between a beautiful relaxed in-studio presentation or an exciting, costumed “preschool & junior” daytime dance recital at Victoria University Memorial Theatre.  2021 is a show year!
