Petite Classes

ages 2-6

It’s no secret that our Petite Dancers program is just delightful.

Our toddler and pre-school classes nurture and inspire our littlest dancers to develop confidence and provides a strong foundation for our academy classes.

Developed by experienced and qualified dance educators, our Petite Dance program truly honours young children and each stage of their development.

When young dancers join our school they will be welcomed into a space that’s friendly, warm and professional. Our skilled and qualified teaching team genuinely care about the experience for each and every little dancer.

Petite Dancers is packed full of fun activities that build a strong foundation for dance. Students are support to develop skills that assist with school readiness such as listening, taking turns, body awareness, spatial awareness, musicality and much more.

We love welcoming young dancers into our studio – their innate rhythm, ability to feel the music and be naturally expressive is something to be treasured and nurtured.

Petite Beats

When you have a child who loves to dance, you just want to celebrate their joy and expression. As parents we know that you’re also looking for ways to help them grow their skills as they grow up. Starting them out with some energetic dance basics is the perfect place to start.

Our Petite Beats program is a fun and energetic 45 minute class introducing basic jazz & tap technique.

For children 4 – 6 years

Petite Hop

Busy, active kids who love to move make great hip hop dancers. We’d love to be a part of helping their feet feel the beat and their bodies bust a move in a fun, safe and nurturing space.

Our Petite Hop program teaches our young students the hip hop basics. Our energetic teachers are big on sharing appropriate moves for little bodies, while enjoying age-appropriate hip hop music that puts a smile on everyone’s faces. This 45-minute program is guaranteed to delight the most active & busy dancer!

Petite Acro

If your child loves to tumble and roll, our Petite Acro class will help them along in a  safe and encouraging way.  This 45-minute class is a supportive environment for active, energetic kids to develop flexibility, balance and strength. It’s an inspiring introduction to acrobatics and tumbling under the guidance of trained staff. And, its loads of fun our active kids.

Petite Stars

Petite Stars is a friendly introduction to the world of dance. Through interactive play, storytelling, games & mime children learn a variety of skills that make the transition into our other Petite Dance classes smooth sailing.

Our caring teachers will enchant and inspire your child with a variety of dance styles and specially selected age-appropriate music during this 30-minute class. Playtime at the beginning of the class form an important opportunity for children to develop their gross motor skills and allow for the development of social connections among students and their parents. 

We ask parent and carers to remain with their child in class, so that you can enjoy the experience together and assist your child. While we understand the challenges of juggling more than one child, we do ask that if you have an older or younger child that you arrange to be taken care of by a family member. That way your little dancer will benefit most from the experience with you!

For children 3 years and under

We can’t wait to be a part of your child’s positive dance experiences
