Keeping the Magic alive
As a dancer, teacher and mum, I’ve always been captivated watching young children wiggle, jiggle, jive, dream and play – usually all at the same time.
I love the ‘magic’ that pre-schoolers seem to find in their everyday lives. Pool noodles become swords, blankets and sheets become forts and castles, mum’s high heels become princess slippers and – in my younger brother’s case – a large patch of full headed dahlias were a field of dragons so were promptly decapitated, much to my mother’s delight!
That magical period in our children’s lives is so genuine, unhampered, and yet, over so very quickly. At My Tiny Dancer, we want to keep that magic alive by encouraging that creativity and helping them explore their imagination through movement. Add to that a dash of developmentally appropriate class structure and top it off a whole lot of fun. This is the age where fantasy should be encouraged.
After all, as Albert Einstein said, “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
What you child will learn at a pre-schooler dance class
Dance classes are a great alternative to team sports, and can help children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends.
Our pre-schooler dance classes cater solely to children aged 18months to 5 years, introducing them to the basic elements of classical ballet and jazz technique, delivered in a fun, non-pressurised environment. Children will receive individual attention and participate in group work, building their self-esteem and self-confidence.
Parents and carers are not only welcome but encouraged to stay and watch their princesses and pirates float, twirl, jump and jive their way around the classroom.

All our dance teachers are ‘Working With Children’ approved and share the My Tiny Dancer philosophy.
What other parents are saying
Thank you so much for a great term! Bronte absolutely loves coming and dancing with you and the other girls, and starts twirling as soon as we get her tutu out in the morning. It’s been fabulous… And you have been fabulous. You’re a natural, they all love you!Rhiannon mum to 3yo Bronte
These classes are such a fun and beautiful introduction to ballet. My daughter loves the classes and I love the non-pressurised, age appropriate learning space. Well done Steph!Julia mum of 4 yo Gracie
Can’t recommend My Tiny Dancer enough, my daughter has just started this term and already loves her ‘new teacher’ who is brilliant with the kids and loves seeing her new friends each week. A lovely relaxed atmosphere for kids to learn to move.Karen mum of 4 yo Piper
Steph is great with the girls in my daughter’s class. Imogen just loves attending every week and is the most happy all week on Mondays when she does dancing. I couldn’t recommend Steph and ‘My Tiny Dancer’ highly enough for encouraging fun, basic ballet skills and socialisation among young children.Duncan dad of 2 yo Imogen
