Students are to be brought into the studio/childcare centre with a parent/guardian.
Please advise the teaching staff if your child is unable to attend a class.
Progression through the levels
As our Programs are ability based, a child commencing with SuperBaby Ballet would necessarily begin in First Steps/Foundation, where the foundations of classical ballet technique are taught. Once a working knowledge of these foundational techniques is gained, the student may then progress to the next level.
Each of the learning Programs of First Steps, Foundation, Form & Flair therefore naturally follow a progressive logical sequence in the presentation of the set exercises. This is to ensure the exercises are easily understood and integrated by the children. It also provides a clear and concise guideline for ensuring the students are on the right track in the development of their learning at each stage of the Program.
Type of learning Program
The structure of this learning Program is designed to enable any child to engage in the Program (particularly one who has had no prior experience in ballet technique) through the use of creative and explorative play. Using various play activities the learning content has been broken down into manageable segments which enable children to bring into focus their imaginations facilitating the organisation and enactment of particular dance movements. Using this dance framework, children are also assisted in the expression of their thoughts, ideas, conceptual understandings and feelings.
Children’s own choice of costume in our classes is designed to support them entering an imaginative world that corresponds with the theme used in our lessons. This enhances creative & expressive intention and enables the execution and accurate assessment of technical skills.
Please bring along a pair of socks. If you would like to bring along your child’s favourite dancing outfit, please ensure the skirt sits well above the upper thigh for ease of corrections.
If attending one of our Strathfield classes, please bring along a pair of soft dancing shoes (such as jiffies or preferably ballet shoes).
Please also ensure your child’s hair is appropriately groomed for class by securing the hair neatly away from the face to avoid distraction.
Food and Drink
Please bring along a bottle of water (non-spill container) to class. All other food and drink is strictly prohibited within the studio/ballet classroom, thankyou.
Payment of fees
Ballet classes are now run on a casual drop-in basis so that there is no need to make up for missed lessons and you have the option of your child participating on a day that suits you. This new method of class participation is designed to fit in more suitably with the lives of busy parents.
The first lesson with SuperBaby is a complimentary lesson. Thereafter, the revised pricing schedule and available packages in line with this new format is as follows:-
- Casual drop in – $20 per class
- 5 Class Pack – $92 ($18.40 per class)
