The standard course is designed for students who love the joy of dance and they can attend as many classes as they wish. The contemporary classes are suitable for children from 11 years of age and are perfect for all levels and also highly recommended for ATAR dance students. The Tiny Tots and Junior ballet are creative, fun ballet classes promoting imagination, rhythm, good posture, listening skills and positive self-esteem.
