Dance is not only a fun way to keep fit, it’s a great way to meet new friends! Whether you’re a hip hopper, a budding ballerina or a tap dancer extraordinaire, we’d love to have you at Bayside Dance. Classes run every day after school and on Saturdays. Many classes run back-to-back so dancers can learn multiple genres with one handy drop off time. We offer a range of classes that may take your child’s fancy, including; ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre, acro and contemporary. We also have hip hop classes just for boys. You are welcome to try a few styles to find the one that suits you!
Kids and Teens
Learn one of dance’s most respected disciplines
Ballet is one of the world’s most beautiful and revered art forms. Students will love building on a foundation of basic movements set to beautiful music as they grow their strength and abilities. While it can be challenging at the higher levels, this traditional dance form is a pleasure to learn for all ages. Students who take ballet classes build self-control, body awareness and self discipline as they learn to master increasingly technical moves.
Experience the energy of jazz!
This popular and dynamic style is taught in a positive environment to all age groups. Jazz is enjoyable for any dancer who just wants to get moving! Lessons are taught by experienced and encouraging instructors where we focus on rhythm, pace and fun.
Get your toes tapping!
Find your rhythm and step out with the enormously appealing tap dance. Learning tap dancing is ideal for those who want to do musical theatre or anyone who has always wanted to give it a try. Mastering this style of dance can help with coordination, rhythm, musicality and agility. Classes are designed to suit your ability and are always enjoyable!.
Boost your fitness and your movement skills
Contemporary dance bridges the gap between jazz and ballet, offering a fluid movement style and encouraging creative thinking. This form of dance often shares emotive storylines, encouraging students to express themselves through movements. While it is less ‘rigid’ than ballet, contemporary still requires students to build a strong technical foundation.
Bust some moves on the floor!
Modern and dynamic, hip hop is certainly addictive. This powerful, high-energy dance style relies on a punchy beat and a little bit of attitude! Children and teens will master individual moves before learning to build up to longer routines. The Hip Hop craze remains popular around the world and students will love these dynamic classes.
Got stars in your eyes?
Our musical theatre program delivers a mix of voice, dance and acting skills. Students combine their love of song with dance in these energetic and diverse classes. Available across a range of age groups from 3 to teenagers, these lessons have a focus on fun! Jump, twirl and glide to some of Broadway’s latest and most memorable tunes.
Bend, Flip and Impress!
Add the ‘wow’ factor to your dancing! Short for acrobatics, ‘Acro’ is the perfect class for kids who love gymnastics and dance. With a focus on floor work, students learn tumbling skills such as somersaults, handstands, cartwheels, bridges, flips and more, and how to perform them to music. Classes cater across a variety of skill level, with the aim of building confidence in acrobatic manoeuvres. The highest standards of safety are adhered to in this class, while maintaining a great sense of FUN!
We know that lots of boys would love to try dance classes, but we also know that encouraging boys to participate can be a bit intimidating when the room is full of girls! That’s why we have developed boys only classes that are energetic and exciting. We encourage musicality, strength and confidence through warm ups and learning fun hip hop-based choreography.
