Little Dance

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


Little Dance is designed for 3-4 year olds and is a 30 minute class.  An introduction to the graceful world of ballet – with a touch of jazz added for fun!  Students learn early ballet skills and steps, and have fun expressing themselves through creative movement and jazz basics.  We follow a beautiful curriculum based on fairytales and provide a nurturing, developmentally appropriate environment for our budding dancers.  Parents do not sit inside the studio but can see through viewing windows, and are of course welcome to settle their child in for their few lessons.

Students at this level take part in an annual informal presentation class with parents as an audience, plus an end-of-year theatre show every second year.
