Dance is beneficial for all ages, and KMS Dance Studio aims to instill a love of dance in all, from our pre-school group, right through to our adult, young-at-heart dance students. We cater in particular for the aspiring ballet dancer and specialise in private coaching for young dancers and our own specialised full-time ballet programme, Dancer in Development.

KMS Dance Studio provides a dynamic learning environment, with a focus on training and preparing young ballet dancers with talent, aptitude and dedication to ultimately pursue a career as a professional ballet dancer.

Our successful full-time ballet Dancer in Development programme has helped the serious ballet student gain acceptance into world renown training establishments such as English National Ballet School, New Zealand School of Dance, Queensland Ballet Academy and Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance.
