Pre School Dance

  • Recommended Age: 3 -4.5 years
    • Children in our Pre School school classes should be confident enough to be left in class without a parent in the room.
    • Parents are more than welcome to stay in the room during the first one or two lessons, however need to understand they may need to remove themselves from the room if they are becoming a distraction.
  • Uniform Required:
    Any ballet style outfit is acceptable for class.
    Pink (female) or white (male) leather ballet shoes will be required for students who wish to partake in our End of Year Recital
  • Our Pre School dance classes are our very first introduction class for students. Students are introduced to the basic fundamental steps of most general dance styles such as skipping, walking on tip toes, marching and much more in a fun and relaxed environment. These skills will help develop technique used in most dance styles as well as general co-ordination. Teachers use props such as wands, scarves, flags and musical instruments to help keep students engaged. Musicality is also an important aspect in these classes.

Grooming Information for all Dancers

Does your dance teacher nag you about your hair? Taking off your jumper in class? Being appropriately groomed?
Do you know why!? She’s preparing you for life out in the world.
Wear your uniform with pride.
Be ready for class, show you have prepared, show that you are ready, show that you care.
Look like a dancer – feel like a dancer … casual clothes in class equals a casual mind.
Show up, look the part, don’t hide under jumpers. Your body is your instrument – show it so you can grow.
Be ready to receive corrections with humility and grace – they are your teachers gift to you.
When you hide, you avoid feedback. When you get no feedback, that’s when you should start to worry… Your teacher has given up – She doesn’t want to ask you to take off your jumper or fix your bun, one more time, do this yourself, and be ready. Be humble and hungry. This is why good grooming is important.
