Petite Feet for Ages 3 – 4 years

Our Petite Feet programs are designed with a child’s mind at heart, considering their eagerness to learn and enabling them to flourish within each class. Our combination classes (Jazz and Ballet, Hip Hop and CheerDance) consist of 2 different genres that complement one another, exposing students to a diverse range of dance steps, styles, technique and music. Our Tap and Tiny Tumblers classes allow us to focus on the one single style, as they have very specific technique that is built upon and developed over time.

As students graduate from one age group to the next, they will do so with confidence and ease as the progressions of our class focusses, such as technique and artistry, flow seamlessly throughout the groups.

As well as the normal class environment advantages, such as listening and following skills, taking turns, helping others, respect for themselves, peers and teachers to list a few, each lesson allows students to:

  • Explore the core foundations of each genre in their class
  • Rhythm and variations on timing
  • Posture awareness and body placement and alignment

We also offer our Petite Feet students opportunities to join our Competition Tiny Dance or Cheer Teams! Check out our competition packs for more information on how to join a team today.

  • Concert T-Shirt
  • Concert Music for home practice

  • Professional Concert Photos
  • Tiny Tumblers Only – One free Parent and Child Safe Spotting workshop

If your child hasn’t danced before, we recommend starting with one of our combination classes, which will provide variety and a great introduction to dance.

At this age, we also recommend that students wishing to partake in more than 1 weekly lesson do so on different days, and therefore do not encourage back-to-back lessons on the same day.

** MINI & MIGHTY TECHNIQUE & STRENGTH – Ages 6 years +

* Mini (Junior Jiver and Tweens) and Mighty Technique (Youth, Preteen, Inter, Senior and Adult)

This class is designed for students in our Junior Jiver classes upwards and is ideal for any aspiring dancer! Every student that takes part in this class will notice a dramatic improvement in all dance styles.

Our technique class will help develop, continually improve and maintain their technique and posture, as well as tone dancers and help them build strength and flexibility. All technique classes consist of ballet elements including barre and centre work, and will continue to broaden their knowledge and progressions for jumps, leaps and turns, as well as students learning and working on how to become more flexible and how to stretch properly and safely and the importance of warming up before exercise and cooling down afterwards. They learn to develop their core strength and how to use their flexibility in the correct way when dancing or performing tricks.

** MIGHTY BALLET (Youth, Preteen, Inter, Senior and Adult)

As ballet is the core of all dancing, we’re offering our Mighty students this class stand alone to ensure they’re focusing the majority of the class on barre and centre techniques and exercises to further enhance their overall technique, flexibility, strength, posture and poise. Offering 2 routines to be learnt and refined throughout the year, this class is an absolute must if students wish to pursue their passion for dance as a career or wish to thrive on the competition floors!

** MIGHTY CHEERDANCE & POM –

(Youth, Preteen, Inter, Senior and Adult)

Believe it or not there is a difference between Cheerleading and Pom! Cheerleading consists of stunts, tumbling skills, chants and a small dance section. Pom has the technical dance skills and is a dance based routine using the cheerleading clean and strong arm motions and jumps with the use of poms. We’ve created a class that has both, with a small variation on the cheerleading aspect due to the tumbling and stunt skills set required. Students will still learn the foundations of both Cheer and Pom and will be able to learn a routine of each. Much like our comp teams this class is full of fun, however is very physically demanding on the body and requires full attendance and commitment, strength and confidence to ensure everyone in the class is learning and progressing together and that students and skills are able to be executed each and every week. But don’t let this intimidate you, it’s also very rewarding, full of new things to learn and promotes great team building!

** JAZZ & LYRICAL 

(Youth, Preteen, Inter, Senior and Adult)

This combination class will expose students to a range of techniques relevant to Jazz and Lyrical. Jazz dance can incorporate a range of dance styles, often depending on the era of the music being used. Often, the traditional technique of Jazz dance is then given a modern flavour. At times, we celebrate past dance movements and fashions by creating period pieces, based off popular dance from that era. It can be almost anything, and our students love the variety that Jazz offers! Lyrical is an expressive form of dance that can incorporate elements of Jazz, Ballet and Acro, and is often associated with clearly displayed emotional moods and reference to song lyrics. Lyrical is always beautiful to watch, and our students love expressing themselves in this way. Students will learn one Jazz dance and one Lyrical dance to perform at our end of year concert.

** HIP HOP & CONTEMPORARY

(Youth, Preteen, Inter, Senior and Adult)

This combination class will explore the movements and techniques relevant to both Hip Hop and Contemporary dance. Hip Hop is fast-moving and energetic, with focuses on such techniques as breaking, popping, tutting and whacking (you’ll have to come to class to find out what those are!). It looks simple when performed but takes work to perfect! Our students love performing Hip Hop as its high energy moves make it lots of fun. Contemporary dance can take many forms. It is not mainstream and can often challenge an audience to interpret the dance and draw their own conclusions about the meaning. It is very expressive and can also be a lot of fun to perform as students explore emotions and convey these through a range of movements. Contemporary dance allows students a method of communication of feelings and emotions other than the use of speech. Students in this class will learn one Hip Hop dance and one Contemporary dance for our end of year concert.
