Early Learning & Children's Courses – Term 3, 2024

- +


Our public Early Learning & Children’s Courses are a great way for kinder and primary school-aged children of all genders to take their first steps into classical dance and experience the magic of dance and music. These term-based courses provide a fun and informative introduction to dance and aim to instil a love of movement. 

Classes are taught by specially trained teachers in the beautiful studios of The Australian Ballet School and feature live piano accompaniment. 

No audition is required to access this public program. It is structured for fostering creativity and enjoyment through dance, and does not centre around ballet grades, formal exams or any performances.

Per the School’s Terms and Conditions, “The School does not provide any participant with individual feedback outside of sessions/classes”


  • Early Learning course enrolments are based on the child’s current age (3yrs+).
  • Children’s course enrolments are based on a child's current (2024) primary school year level.
  • Any incorrect enrolments may be transferred if a place is still available in the correct class. Incorrect enrolments may be refused and incur the 15% cancellation fee if a refund is approved.
  • Kinder participants must be toilet trained and must be at least 3 years old at the start of the term.
  • Please note that bookings will be for the term booked. As this is a public program, prior enrolment will not guarantee a place in future courses.
