Up to 3 years old class
A Pre Ballet class full of dancing and imagination designed for preschool children. Bright bubbly and beautiful……these classes have been created specifically for this age group. Your preschooler will embark on a journey of discovery and creativity as they learn to tip toe, jump, point, bop, skip and twirl.
An upbeat energetic age appropriate class for preschool children. Children will develop coordination, strength and musicality to music that is age appropriate and funky. Children will learn basic jazz & hip Hop technique and simple routines to their favourite tunes.
The chance to make some noise with their feet while learning coordination. Inspire their imagination, assist in the development of gross motor skills and balance. We teach basic tap technique and simple routines to their favourite tunes. A wonderful class for all the little tappers in your world.
These classes are for both boys and girls aged 1-2 years and provide your little ones with a fun, creative and magical introduction to the world of dance. Learn the basic ballet positions, sing along to your favourite songs and join us each week as we take your children on wonderful imaginative adventures that are sure to awaken the little dancer within. Be sure to pack your dancing feet as this class requires full participation from mum, dad,grandma, Pa or a special friend.
These classes are suitable for boys and girls. They are lively and help develop coordination, strength and flexibility. Students will learn basic tumbling skills in a safe and controlled manor.
RHYTHM WORKS Integrative Dance is a specialised, but inclusive, dance class for people with individual learning differences and other special needs. Our certified dance instructors work closely with each student’s developmental team to offer community based group classes.
We understand the expense of a uniform can sometimes be the breaking point between affording dance lessons … or not … so we do not insist on a Fairy Uniform in order to attend dance classes.
That said, we know that all little girls LOVE their fairy ballet dresses, so we have designed a uniform that is unique to The Fairies, is exclusive to Fairy Dancers, and is very, very special!
It consists of a leotard, wrap, tutu and headband, all for just $39 (plus postage) Buy it here: http://thefairies.com/product-category/clothes/
Your fairy child can either have bare feet or ballet slippers (but no socks thank you – they can be too slippery on tiny feet).
My daughter is obsessed!! She loves going to fairy dancing and it has helped with her confidence so much. Thank you fairies for an awesome year!
Can Carers Watch the Classes?
Carers are not permitted to sit in on lessons, but are happily encouraged to sit in our specially designed parents’ waiting area and watch their fairies live on the TV monitor.
We find that children are far less likely to participate in an engaged manner if adults are present. Their ability to listen, cooperate, and gain full advantage of the opportunity to grow in confidence and within a peer group is seriously compromised when adults, other children, siblings, grandparents etc are in the dance space.
Should particular children require parental attendance for medical reasons, or due to other special needs, this can be negotiated on an individual basis with the teacher. Should you need to do this, please make a time to meet with your child’s teacher before the commencement of lessons. We would prefer the opportunity to negotiate strategies with you before your child’s first lesson so as to optimize their chances for success.
What if we miss a Class?
If a lesson is missed, that lesson may be made up in the same term as the missed class. This will be recorded and checked off at the make-up lesson.
The make-up lesson must be in the same age-group as your child would usually attend. You may find that the lesson content and/or structure of the make-up lesson is slightly different than your child’s usual lesson as we cater for the specific needs of each group and its varying capabilities, talents, etc. Consequently, content and structure can differ between groups within the same age-range, however we’re sure your fairy friend will love it just as much.
If your class happens to fall on a public holiday, the missed/make up lesson guidelines apply.
Can I have a FREE trial lesson?
Of course! Just get in touch and we’ll arrange this for you with fairy pleasure!
Can boys participate in Fairy Dancing?
We welcome boys, however we do like to point out that the classes are designed for Fairies, not Elves, and are very ‘pink’. That said, we’ve had some awesome Bee Boyz in our classes over the years who have gone on to be amazing hip hop, funk and classical dancers! Give us a call to discuss the best class for your boy.
