We are very proud of our very own pre school dance program 'funky monkeys'. Three specially designed levels to work on your child's coordination, musicality, fine motor skills and spatial awareness, through dance, song and having fun! We start with funky monkey 2, from walking, where parents are invited to join in the class with their funky monkeys. Children then move on to funky monkey 3, then 4 where they start to learn basics for ballet tap and modern, so at age 5 they are ready to move into their chosen genre.
Following the ISTD classical ballet syllabus, we run classes from pre-primary to advanced levels, starting from age 5.
