In an incredibly supportive and fun setting, our kids and teen dance classes explore movement, work on learning choreography, learn how to choreograph and improvise with confidence, all while developing strong technical foundations.
End of year dance concert
All of our kids and teen dance classes participate in our end of year concert, held in late November/early December. These concerts are an exciting opportunity for our students to perform in front of their families and friends, and for families and friends to witness how our dancers have grown and developed over the course of the year.
Tiny Troopers Creative Movement
Our hugely rewarding Creative Movement classes provide a fantastic outlet for young children to explore the tight bonds between emotion, body and self-esteem. Unlike many dance classes for children, these sessions use several art mediums (including dance, singing and stories) as tools to develop personal growth, develop fine motor skills, encourage effective communication, and raise awareness of emotional intelligence and positive body image. We see incredible results for children who participate in these classes, regardless of whether they wish to pursue dance or not. Highly recommended!
