About

At NY Dance, there is a class to suit everyone from toddlers through to Pre-School, school age to teenage and an enviable menu of classes for adult dancers of all ages. you
Take one class or take them all – it is entirely up to you.

Curriculum & Qualifications

At NY Dance we follow the ATOD teaching syllabus in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Contemporary, Musical Theatre and Hip Hop.
And while examinations are taken by a very small group of students, and are not compulsory, following a syllabus ensures that our students are learning at the correct level of dance training for their age and ability and is your assurance that we have an intentionally planned and progressive path to teaching your child’s class.

We love ATOD because it offers the most diverse dance education training, and we love their ideology (they are the most inclusive dance training organisation) and the framework of the ATOD business model which suits and upholds many of the values that we hold dearly at NY Dance.

Our Acrodance program is supported by Acrobatic Arts, a syllabus created in Canada, which we love because of their mission statement of ‘safety first and technique’

It helps our students to build strong bodies so that children are able to reach the desired goals and skill level safely in a way that they can physically handle.

 

Our individual teachers hold qualifications and memberships with the following dance societies and associations including:

  • CSTD (Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing)
  • ATOD (Australian Teachers of Dancing)
  • Acrobatic Arts
  • Rhythm Works Integrative Dance
  • Dance Cirque
  • YPAD
  • All teachers and administrative staff hold their blue cards and have First Aid training.

Our teachers are committed to regularly updating our curriculum and lead by example by continually upgrading their own skills by attending workshops and their ongoing self-education.
