Our 3 – 5 year old classes incorporate the Leap ‘N Learn Curriculum. Leap ‘N Learn is an effective, safe, progressive, and developmentally appropriate dance program for creative movement to beginning ballet. Designed by master teacher Beverly Spell and expert child psychologist Dr. Annie Spell, the curriculums combine the healthiest practices for teaching children ballet technique, while simultaneously encouraging pretend play amongst the youngest students to maintain a positive and nurturing environment.

Capitalising on the naturally occurring cognitive and neural development of children, the Leap ‘N Learn curriculum provides tools and shares knowledge necessary for the creation of a successful learning environment. Through an appreciation and utilisation of natural development, students in a Leap ‘N Learn program will acquire motor, cognitive, and social skills beneficial for life.

We are the only studio in the Sutherland Shire to offer this comprehensive and age appropriate beginner ballet program.

Testimonials

“After much research, I enrolled my 3 year old in Tiny Ballet At En Pointe Dance Academy at the start of 2019 – and I am so glad I did! The teachers are so caring and attentive with the children. I love the sense of community within the school which encourages friendships between the children (she loved the movie day!) , and the values of the school (positive discipline,  age appropriate dress, up to date with latest teaching philosophy), all whilst giving me confidence that the school is strong in ballet technique. I look forward to my daughter moving up through the grades for as long as she enjoys dancing. I have also just enrolled my 2 year old in the parent/child little leapers class – which we both enjoyed!“ Aioni
