TINY STEPS – ages 2 and up
NEW in 2022 (waitlist only) Tiny Steps Ballet is a beautiful class for little ones aged 2 and up, that is designed for the children to dance alongside their Mum, Dad or carer.
These classes will teach your tiny dancer to move with increased control, co-ordination and confidence, all while helping them to develop an awareness of the body and how it moves through space.

BEGINNERS FOUNDATION- Ages 8-11
NEW in 2021 Beginners Foundation is a class designed for children ages 8-11 who have never done ballet before.
Generally, when a child who is 8 or over decides to join a ballet class, it can be very difficult for them to keep up. So we designed these classes so children could enjoy the pleasure of learning classical ballet, while developing a basic technique one level at a time. Class intake occurs at the beginning of the year, but private lessons are available to help any new comers catch up.
Our first entry level class begins in term 1. 2022 Class Schedule
TEEN BEGINNERS- Ages 12-17
Teen Beginners is a class designed for children ages 12-17 who have done little to no ballet before.
Each lesson helps your teen develop confidence by learning the terminology and steps from scratch, and is a really great way to make new friends.
Class intake generally occurs at the beginning of each year, but private lessons are available to help new comers join later on. 2022 Class Schedule
