At NY Dance we believe that dance classes can be for everyone.
This philosophy is engrained across our entire studio program and we offer opportunities for anyone who would love to experience the joy of dance no matter their age, ability or individual needs.
We don’t participate in eisteddfods or any sort of ‘competitive’ work instead focussing on creating a love of dance, teaching solid dance technique with everything culminating in spectacular, end of year performances for our family and friends.
If you would love to join the dance studio with a very intentional point of difference, then we would love to invite you to share the NY Dance experience.
We are so excited to introduce our BRAND NEW Circus Class Program – DANCE CIRQUE to NY Dance in 2021.
In each class students will climb, juggle and learn circus skills in a safe environment.
Dance Cirque has been created for children over the age of 6 years and is great for both boys and girls and the best part is that you don’t need to be a dancer to enjoy this class so it is perfect for brothers and sisters who may love to be a part of a fun, physical activity but who may not be interested in attending a regular dance class.
It works on Level Cards so everyone progresses at their own pace with the class set out in three parts:
- Warm Up
- Aerial Skills – Lyra, Trapeze, Silks
- Floor Act – Juggling and Hula Hooping
Cirque is great for cognitive development, gross motor skills, strength, flexibility and fantastic for confidence too.
And we haven’t forgotten our 2-5’s with their own very special Circus classes called “Little Monkeys” which is a super-fun class where your little one will gain confidence, learn skills and have lots of fun.
The “Little Monkeys” program includes basic tumbling, interactive circuits, balance beams, silks, juggling, hula hoops and more all under the supervision of our amazing teaching team.
Dance Stars Program
Our tiniest dancers start as young as 9 months through to approximately 7 years of age. If your little dancer loves to whirl & twirl or hop & bop around the lounge room then they will simply be thrilled in any of our classes.
With lots of props to keep them entertained like ribbons, scarves & pom poms we can assure you that your child will be simply enchanted during their lesson time. We have been very intentional in creating a quality dance program with super exciting themes every term such as ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’, ‘Blast Off’ & ‘Down on the Farm’ so that your child will be totally entertained and unable to wait for their next ‘dance day’.
NY Dance Arts Program
Our ‘Dance Arts Program’ is where the dance magic really starts to happen.
Our fabulous programs have been very intentionally created to allow students aged 8 to 18 to progress in an age-appropriate manner giving every dancer has the opportunity to shine.
Watch the progression of your dancer from the Dance Stars Program right through to the Dance Arts Program.
The multitude of dance classes to choose from includes tap, jazz, ballet, hip hop, contemporary musical theatre or acrodance.
Students are encouraged to focus more on technique at this level, and ‘being the best they can be’. This is when we see our students truly flourish, in a dance environment crafted to be gently encouraging and supportive while at the same time offering a solid, quality dance education.
Move With You
‘Move With You’, our very first dance class for your tiniest dancer ages 9 months to around 3 years of age.
‘Move With You’ is a 45 minute play-based dance class that parents (and often grandparents) attend with their child. It incorporates toys, props, scarves, instruments, hoops and so forth, with the learning of very basic dance steps. Specifically crafted by our Early Childhood educators, this class has essential childhood development points such as proprioceptive input, vestibular input, gross and fine motor skills and much more, all disguised as a part of our fun song and dance activities.
This is a rewarding one-on-one class spent with your little dancer full of fun activites that will spark their imagination and keep them coming back for more.

This is something that we are extremely passionate and proud of.If you would love to be a part of a studio that values children being children, that has high moral standards when it comes to the work we present to the students of every age, both in class and on stage, then we would love to show you the NY Dance difference.

I was looking for a dance school for a while and then I stumbled across NY Dance. Since starting with NY Dance at the beginning of 2016, I have made some new friends and enjoyed dancing again. This year I decided to take on a second class and I am absolutely loving it. The teachers are so lovely and the classes are so much fun. I love being able to dance and not worry about what else is happening in my life.

The teachers are amazing and are always improving their dance techniques too. Would highly recommend this school to anyone. They do classes for all ages, including adult classes in many genres. 5 Star!!!
