Students who wish to sit their exams are required to attend 2 ballet classes each week and Exam Preparation Workshops.

  • Pre-School Jazz Hip Hop and Singing

    Our Ready Set Dance program is perfect for both boys and girls, an energetic 45 minute combo class that includes Jazz, Hip Hop, Singing and Music. Our tiny dancers just love busting out their funky moves, singing like a star, learning rhythm on our animal safari and going bananas with all our cool music tracks created especially for Ready Set Dance by the top music producers from the Australian Kids television industry. Although not compulsory our pre-schoolers have the opportunity to perform in both mid and end of year special preschool performances that last for 30 minutes and there is plenty of opportunity for parents to view class during the term.

  • Pre-School Ballet

    A delightful 45 minute class for our princesses and ballet boys. Taught to a mix of classical and modern ballet music children learn exercises that combine basic ballet steps, feet and arm positions and games that enhance creativity, memory, self expression, musicality, rhythm and poise. Our tiny dancers can’t wait for ballet day to arrive each week so they can show us their stork walks over the lily pads, leaps over the garden and most of all they look forward to ballet story time where we dance freely each week to the theme of a different short story. Although not compulsory our youngest students have the opportunity to perform in both mid and end of year special preschool performances that last for 30 minutes and there is plenty of opportunity for parents to view class during the term.

  • “I have been at NBSOD since I was 5 years old and I have always loved coming to dance classes. I think that NBSOD is the perfect place to learn many different styles of dance, I do ballet, jazz, technique and an eisteddfod group, it is so much fun.
    Since I was little one of my favourite dance things in the year is the end of year concert because we get to dance on a big stage and dress up in costume and perform in front of our friends and family and the feeling that you get when you”re performing on that stage is amazing”
