Our program for pre-school kids is designed specially for children aged from 2 to 4 years old to experience their very first ballet steps in a creative and fun setting with lots of imaginative ideas and a fun approach.
Often called "Baby Ballet" or "Kinder Ballet" our classes are specially designed for children to learn "real ballet basics" in a fun, friendly and creatively structured class. We explore music interpretation, play games and use story telling ideas to keep children engaged. Carmel Amelia School of Dance offers this very special program based on our many years of experience in teaching students from 2 years old and up.

Cost: $10 per week
For our tiniest dancers who want to have a go but still want support from mum/dad/carer (to be there & participating with them) we have introduced our "Bubs & Me" class which will have a fun mix of music, basic motor skills, dance moves and play. Either mum, dad, grandparent or a carer can be part of the class and give your little one the support & security to participate, getting them ready for when they can move up to our tiny tots classes. Come along and join the fun...
Can Parents stay in and watch class?
For the best learning outcomes children need to focus on their teacher. Our tots dance classes require that parents leave the children in the care of our expert teachers so that the teachers have the children's full focus. It is also important that all children have privacy from other parents watching, as to them they are strangers! For this reason also we ask that parents do not stand at windows to watch and DEFINITELY DO NOT TAKE PHOTOS!
We do understand that many parents are keen to check their child is doing ok but your teacher will let you know if there are any concerns.
We will also offer an "open day" event where parents can come in and view the class...usually in term 2.
*If children are not yet ready to be independent then we recommend the "Bubs & Me" class where the parent/carer participates with their child.
Uniform - Is there a Uniform?
Yes we have uniforms which can be purchased through our school or dance shops before OR after a trail class. (See "about us: uniform" page for more details)
