Choosing the right class for your child
During the first class, your child will be assessed so the teacher can see which class is going to be most appropriate. We look at your child’s physical abilities, personality and confidence, and comfort level in a classroom environment.
Our classes are great for overcoming shyness and building independence as well as releasing energy, making new friends and building lifelong skills.
A range of class types available
We have a range of classes for preschoolers, depending on their level of confidence and whether or not you’d like to participate in the class.
Delightful Tots & Kinder Kids
Classes is designed with and without parent interaction in mind. This can depend on the child, sometimes you’ll just sit and enjoy the class and others may need more involvment! We recognise that some children will take longer than others to cope with the separation and independence in a class.

- fine and gross motor skills
- fitness and locomotion
- appreciation of basic music, rhythm and timing
- socialisation skills and self confidence
- hand-eye and foot coordination
- creativity and imagination
Little Fairies / Elves
(Most children in Little Fairies and Elves classes have completed Kinder Kids – but this isn’t a requirement).
Little Fairies and Little Elves classes start by combining co-ordination with dance and progress to a full dance class. Children learn the first lessons for classical ballet and jazz dance and work towards performing routines by the end of year.
This is a class where fun and discipline go hand in hand. The ATOD preschool syllabus is introduced in this class to lay the foundations for a creative technical dancer. We focus on:
- space awareness, personal and shared
- taking directions
- how we move and moving different body parts
- time and energy in movement
The benefits of the class include: development of listening skills and social skills, improvement of fine and gross motor skills, development of expression as well as enjoyment of dance and music.
