About our preschool dance classes

Our preschool dance classes begin at just 2 years old. We teach using a combination of music and imagination taking little ones on magical adventures where movement to music forms the foundations of dance technique.

Students develop motor and loco-motor skills and learn the basic elements of movement, rhythm and musicality, as well as the beginnings of ballet, tap and acro skills. Dancing at a young age is great for physical development, self-expression, creativity, and imagination. It’s also great fun!

Tiny Dancers

2 – 3 years

Our youngest DN class uses fun stories and adventures, colourful props and upbeat music to encourage natural movement, body awareness and the beginnings of dance.

Grown-ups, be prepared to join in and encourage your tiny dancer to shine

Little Dancers

3 & 4 years old

A ballet and tap combination class where your little one comes in without a grown up. A rewarding step for our youngest of stars!

We take our Little Dancers on a magical adventure, grasping their imaginations as we teach movements and patterns that form the basics of ballet and tap technique.

Little Acro

3 & 4 years old

One of our most popular dance styles. Dance Acro introduces acrobatic elements like tumbling into a dance.

At this level, children will focus on executing basic moves such forward roles and cartwheels, as well as building strong posture and musicality. It is recommended to attend Little Dancers alongside acro.
