Bendigo Dance

Shining through Dance!

Ready Set Dance is an innovative program designed specifically to introduce young children to the world of dance. In each class teachers explore aspects of the Ready Set Dance curriculum through playful approaches which are responsive to the curiosity and imagination of young learners. The children respond with active and joyful engagement and participation that enables them to practice and refine the skills and capacities needed for dance. At the same time the children are extended across the various developmental domains of physical, cognitive, language and social development and use learning processes such as attending, remembering and problem solving. Through regular and sustained participation in Ready Set Dance classes children develop positive dispositions to learning such as enthusiasm, independence, concentration, persistence, co-operation and the three C’S of confidence, coordination, and creativity. Ready Set Dance offers much to support the play and learning if young children in Australia and beyond. Dr.Cathie Harrison EdD, M.Ed, B.Ed(EC) Early Childhood and Gifted Education Consultant

Ready Set Ballet

We are thrilled to have this fabulous preschooler program at our studio. We are an official location in Bendigo which is run in over 230 dance studios across Australia and New Zealand. 

Ready Set Ballet is a 30 minute magical ballet experience for 2- 5 year olds. Twirl will lead our little ballerinas through each step of the class as they learn the fundamentals of ballet. Our music has been specifically designed to capture the beauty of classical ballet in a way that engages preschoolers from the first warm up to the final bow.

We love seeing Ready Set Ballet on 10 Peach & Nick Jnr!

Our preschoolers just LOVE....
