Ballet
Ballet is the basis of all dance. The fundamentals of ballet are necessary to create strong, dynamic dancers. For youngsters starting at 4 years old, we strongly emphasize the necessity of at least one weekly ballet class. This builds up to five classes per week for students interested in developing their talent and performing skills.

Creative Dance
Spotlight offers a 45-minute once per week program for children aged 3 years. The class is a mixture of ballet, singing and games and runs for 10 months. Children will develop motor skills, co-ordination, rhythm, listening skills, spatial awareness and movement vocabulary through music, songs and games. Your child will build confidence and be encouraged to explore his/her own imagination and creativity through movement. Pre-dance is an excellent foundation for progression into the pre-primary levels.
