Friday & Saturday
WHAT DO THEY DO IN CLASS?
Welcome to a fun filled class for your little one, starting from the ages of 2 to 5 years old.
During a 45 minute class children are taught basic movements and dance in the styles of
classical ballet, jazz and tap. They also have the option to extend class by 30minutes to
learn acrobatics. The class starts with ballet where children will be introduced to the wonderful world
that ballet is learning the very foundations which may one day encourage them to become a ballerina!
From there the children leave their shoes on and get started on some funky jazz moves. Each week
learning new steps and dance technique which carries on through to dance routines they learn through
out the year.
After a quick drink and change of shoes children will come back in the studio for tap dancing.
WILL I KNOW AFTER ONE CLASS IF THEY SETTLE OK?
Its hard to know how your little one will go after one class For most children its the first time being in a structured and new environment. We offer FREE trial classes as we often find the first few times they can be shy. Often by the third or fourth class they are more comfortable dancing and twirling around with their new friends.
We recommend parents bring them to at least three classes before deciding whether to stay or not.
WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE THEM PERFORM?
Each year we do a Christmas concert held at a professional venue.
The children will perform 2 dances on stage in costume .These shows offer a wonderful
opportunity for our young stars to show their newly accomplished talents for parents, family
Through out the year the children will have a chance to perform at the Hawkesbury Show, a
great introduction at the start of the year to being on stage with their friends.
We also have either a mid year concert held at a professional venue or our in house showcase
night, where we showcase all we have learned in class in front of our family and friends on our
very own stage at the studio.
CAN WE WATCH THE CLASS?
Parents are not encouraged to watch as it becomes distracting for their own child and the other children in the class. We find they work much better under the guidance of just the teacher Every couple of weeks we ask the parents to come and view a portion of the class. This usually takes place on our big stage in the studio, this gives the children a chance to practise being on stage with an audience.
