Preparatory Ballet

Sharing the Joy of Dance

Our Preparatory Ballet is our beginning curriculum for our ballerinas – offered to children 4.5 years old (children eligible to attend Kindergarten). Our lessons are thoughtfully structured to introduce children to dance independently in a class environment. Our playful lessons build on a child’s imagination, musicality, and improvisation – a perfect balance between the introduction of dance and creativity.

These classes are at the following locations:
📍 Applecross
📍 Burswood
📍 Canning Vale
📍 Claremont
📍 Cockburn
📍 Duncraig
📍 Floreat
📍 Hamersley
📍 Inglewood
📍 North Perth
📍 Karratha

Our End Of Year (EOY) Productions

Preparatory students do not participate in our EOY ballet productions. This class is a fundamental introductory step for children to learn to dance independently – we don’t believe students this young are ready to independently perform on our big stages, such as Crown Theatre. After completing the Preparatory Ballet students will receive a Certificate of Achievement and move on to Pre-Primary Ballet. Our Pre-Primary students do participate in our EOY production following a year of study.


Classes of 30 minutes are held once a week during the term, with some Preparatory Programmes running in conjunction with Pre-Primary lessons. After completing the Preparatory Ballet children move on to the Pre-Primary class.
