General Dance For 5-7 Year olds

Second term starts on the week of 7th May and consists of 9 weeks of classes, during which the students will learn the basics of rhythms and movement.  This program is designed to help children develop coordination, musicality, rhythm, self confidence, discipline and ability to participate in activities as part of a team.

The cost for Term 2 is $70 for the 9 classes or $110 for attending twice per week – 18 classes. Please contact me if you have more than one child in the family wanting to enroll to negotiate a disounted rate.  Each class is 45 minutes long.  Please note that there are no refunds due to sickness, injury, holidays or other reasons.  Our costs are fixed and it is your responsibility to make sure that no classes are missed.

We recommend attending the whole course as missing classes will impact the learning process. However, a casual rate of $10 per child per class is available.

We find that parents are a distraction, so we do not allow parents to stay for the class. However you may come for the last 15 minutes of the last class of the term to watch what your child has learnt.

With time we will also work on dance technique/ strength and flexibilty.

Please note that we need a minimum of 6 enrolments and a maximum of 15   for the course to go ahead.
