Specialised Preschool Dance Programs

Balance Dance School’s specialised preschool dance programs Toddler Creative Dance and Kinder Creative Ballet offer a gentle introduction to dance based on children’s natural movements of running, skipping, galloping, jumping and turning. Both classes use fun props and engaging music, building imaginative and creative responses, aiding in the development of new physical abilities. 

In Toddler Creative Dance, a parent or carer dances with their little dancer – making it a fun, unique bonding experience. Parents or carers are also welcome into the studio for the Kinder Creative Ballet classes, to support their dancer in their creative journey.

A beautiful dance community with a supportive environment with a focus on joy, inclusion, and community. Concerts each year are fun and child/family focussed. My family have loved our experience with Balance, with my 3rd child commencing ’24 in toddler dance!” – Rachael

Wonderful inclusive dance school – my daughters have been dancing with Balance for 7 years starting with toddler dance! My youngest is now in the toddler class with my eldest in grade 3 ballet, contemporary and jazz. Fun, professional teachers and great confidence building in preparation for exams and concerts.” – Susan

My daughter enjoys dancing in the Kinder Creative Ballet classes on the weekend for the last 2 years. Rebecca and Britney are both lovely teachers who are approachable, sensitive and caring, making each child feel welcomed. It is good to see the advance level ballet students, who are talented and excellent dancers themselves, be given the opportunity to assist in teaching the younger dancers. I also like how parents may sit in to observe the class as it is encouraging to see the children grow and flourish in their dancing skills, musical expression and self-confidence throughout the year. My child also enjoys participating in the Christmas concert which is voluntary, and it is amazing to see all the hard work, the students and teachers have made, come to fruition! Thank you to Rebecca and her team for the wonderful dance experience so far! Keep up the great work!” – Regina
