“For those who simply have to dance!" Our New Lynn dance studio welcomes girls and boys of all ages that are keen to experience the joy of dance.

Please note, this is not a ballet-based class. 

Children have the opportunity to mix music and movement in these popular classes that encourage fun, creativity, imagination and movement. This class will extend your child's natural dance abilities through new movement experiences and growing physical strength, co-ordination, flexibility and control. Parents tell us these classes are the perfect step up from Mainly Music.


Joanna Sylvester tutors our Creative Dance classes.

Classes include a structured warm up, short dance phrases, improvisation and exploration. Children learn group skills, class etiquette, body awareness and basic dance technique. Narratives, themes, concepts and music are used to connect with children’s imagination and as we come up with and share movements, we create dances together. Balletic elements may be used as may other dance genres in order to offer a fun and diverse dance class!

Dance is known for its many benefits for all age groups and there is no other joy than seeing our smaller age groups participate in the art form that is dance.

about_nzamd"Choreographed by Ann Dewey, the NZAMD Contemporary syllabus has grown steadily as teachers recognise its value. Teaching students to understand the concepts of contemporary movement such as weight, flow, momentum, and the use of gravity, they continue to enjoy a sense of dance while focusing on freedom of movement and spatial awareness." 

NZAMD is currently available for our junior dancers (Intro/Preparatory, Level 1, Level 2), with the opportunity to sit examinations. Our Studio is registered to teach this syllabus so please contact us to register your interest for 2018.

Junior Ballet
Our Junior Ballet class gives the students a wonderful start to ballet. Simple concepts of ballet technique will be introduced and posture, musicality, imagination and ballet etiquette will be encouraged. Non syllabus based, however our students may have the opportunity to sit an NZAMD medal award in the latter part of the year.

What to wear

Creative Dance
We suggest children wear leggings or exercise pants and a T-shirt, with bare feet. Classes may involve floor work, so clothing that is tidy but comfortable, and not baggy is ideal. Girls may wear a short skirt over leggings. Hair should be tidily groomed away from the face if long.

We encourage students to wear tidy attire such as a fitted top/leotard, socks/tights and leather ballet shoes. Hair should be tied neatly away from the face and ideally up off the nape of the neck in a bun or similar. For pre school ballet we do not require a uniform.
Junior ballet students will ideally wear a pale pink leotard with matching chiffon skirt and leather ballet shoes (girls), dark coloured shorts/black tights, White T-shirt and ballet shoes (boys).
