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.

I absolutely LOVE the studio, the classes and of course the incredible teacher! I have never been the most coordinated when it comes to dance but Kelly's Barre classes are something else. They target every single muscle in your body and I leave class feeling like I have had a fantastic workout while still feeling feminine. The studio is divine and is a beautiful place to have a workout! Thank you Kelly for all you do for your clients! We LOVE YOU!
