Dance

We offer a range of kids dance classes including RAD Ballet, NZAMD Jazz, NZAMD Tap, NZAMD Contemporary, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre. 

We focus on fun, structured, dynamic classes that will teach them movement and so much more.

Our Dance Classes

Our passion is to make each child feel like a somebody, and not just a number.

Our RAD Ballet and NZAMD classes are based on a syllabus where kids learn a range of exercises to prepare them for the option of sitting an exam once a year.

Our hip hop classes are fun and interactive and teach kids the skills and techniques for different hip hop styles.

We have an end of year show where all kids get the chance to perform on stage.
