Pre-School Dance

Pre-School Dance classes at Geronimo Performing Arts are for students from 3-4 years of age.

Classes are designed to be a fun beginning to dance and music. They introduce basic movements that are required for multiple styles of dance further on, as well as the discipline required for dance classes. Each of our studios has a viewing window for parents to watch the class from the outside. Students can see out, and parents can see what they are doing in class, but parents are not permitted in the room. We ask that students are confident enough to come in without their parent.

 

The aim of these classes is to encourage students to develop a love of dance

and music in a fun, exciting and creative way.

First Time Dancers?

The best way to introduce your little dancer is to book them in for a trial.

Just click HERE to fill out the trial form,

then we can put them on the class roll and let the teacher know.

For the first class, if the student is shy, the parent can sit in the corner

of the room, but after that we do ask that they wait outside.

We find the students are better focused this way.

 

A trial is free of charge. They can wear whatever they are comfortable in and just join in the fun.

After the trial, if they want to continue, then we can formally enrol them and take it from there.
