‘Where kids get to be kids and grow a love of dance’ (Elodie & Eddie’s mum)

My daughter loves her Tiny Tots ballet classes at Kelly’s Dance Academy! She is about to complete her second year and has learnt a lot, not only in dance, but how to listen and perform as part of a group. As a parent who has had children at different dance studios in the past, I also appreciate the nurturing mentality and thoughtfully structured classes run by Kelly and her team.Mum of Ivy, aged 4

Our recitals are a magical way to end a semester, providing an opportunity for children to enjoy the stage in a supportive, gentle way.
At Kelly’s Dance Academy we like to keep our recitals low key, affordable and most of all enjoyable. Our dancers have the opportunity to take to the stage twice per year and they soak up the wonder of performing in a positive way, providing them with memories to last a lifetime.
What our families say…
“Our daughter Jenna had been begging us, since the day she could talk, to put her in ballet lessons. We wanted to place her somewhere with a relaxed, less formal environment with an empathsis on cherishing and developing her love of dancing. Luckily we found Kelly’s Dance Academy which Jenna has been attending for the past few years. Jenna loves her ballet lessons and has learnt about positions and terminology through Kelly’s gentle approach. The end of year concerts are informal and so much fun. We are very happy to recommend Kelly’s Dance Academy.”
“(There are) A variety of activities that are easy for the children to follow – pitched just right for the age. Miss Kelly is able to keep the pace of the lesson and still create a warm, fun session. The Christmas Concert provided so many learning opportunities and watching what they had accomplished in the short time was incredible.” (Mum of Josephine, age 3)
