Designed to teach 3 and 4 year olds basic dance steps, develop rhythm and timing using imagination and lots of fun.
The program builds in Terms 1 and 2 then in Term 3 students learn a dance that will be performed at their concert at the end of Term 3.
In Term 4 students start to learn new elements and all students are invited to participate in the Blockhouse Bay Santa Parade.
Term fees for Pre School Dance is $125 per term with an average of 9 lessons per term, with a minimum of 8. Some terms have 10 lessons.
