The Australian Ballet School's Children’s Classes are a great way for primary school children of all genders to take their first steps in classical dance and fulfil those young dance dreams in advance of more serious training. No audition is required to access these classes, which are taken by vocationally trained teachers and feature live piano accompaniment.

In 2020, these Children’s Classes will be allocated by academic grade, allowing for more consistent enrolment, with children remaining with their cohort throughout the year. Children's Classes available for Term 2 Saturdays are as follows:

  • Prep & Grade 1
    8.45 - 9.45am, and 
    10.00 - 11.00am 

  • Grade 2-3
    11.30am - 12.30pm, and
    12.45 - 1.45pm 

  • Grade 4-6
    12.45 - 1.45pm Saturdays

Please ensure your child is enrolled into the class that matches their academic (primary school) grade for 2020.
