Ready Set Dance…
READY SET DANCE is a performing arts syllabus designed specifically for preschoolers. It has been developed using the knowledge of successful dance teachers who have been running classes for this age group for over thirty years.
With a major emphasis on fun and creating confident little people this syllabus is the first stepping stone on your child’s dance journey. It will be your child’s favourite hour of the week.
They will just love balancing bean bags, working as a team with the parachute, singing on the microphone, putting on a puppet show and playing musical instruments.
Ready Set Dance is run in studios that cater for all ages
This means your child will not only be on the right path for their dancing journey but they will also make friendships that often last right through to adulthood. With so much uncertainty surrounding the school transition year, it’s nice to know that you don’t have to change dance studios. Dance Together Friends Forever!

Boys and girls love our classes. The music is a mix of traditional songs and the latest hits that kids love. Jazz, tap, hip hop, singing, music, acting – there’s something for everyone. Our mascots are ‘Twirl’ and ‘Freeze’. They represent our aim to deliver a syllabus that caters for boys as much as girls.
