Whether you’ve got a serious little dancer or a freestyler on your hands, dance classes combine emotion, music and story, which will delight your kids to no end! Here is a master list of all the dance classes in Auckland.
Sometimes boys are just a little bit too shy to express themselves in the often female-dominated world of dance. We have found various schools that offer distinct opportunities for our boys to dance and thrive. There are all sorts of ways for boys to get down to their favourite beats, from stage fighting and break dancing to boys-only classes. Dance schools here.
Traditional ballet schools will never go out of style! These classic classes ingrain good posture into your kids from a young age, they encourage elegance and stature, and grow kids’ confidence and creativity. Ballet has always been a treasured art form, so let your kids amaze you with both their athletic and aesthetic beauty. Dance schools here.
Competitions are an awesome way for kids to build up their stage confidence, gain invaluable experience, become part of a tight-knit crew, or become a solo artist forging their name in the world of dance! If your kids love to dress up, have a bit of a boogie, and strut their stuff, this category is perfect for them. Dance schools here.
If your kids are ones who stray from the well-worn path (or dance floor), then they’ll love this selection of amazy-crazy dance schools! There’s Irish dance, cheerleading, musical theatre, stage fighting, rock ‘n’ roll, Brazilian funk, flamenco, acrobatics, breakdancing, dance-sport, salsa, national character (from Pacific dance to Asian styles), country, Zumba, Broadway and new vogue. Dance schools here.
Kids are born movers and groovers. These classes are non-curricular based and have no exams, making it the perfect category for those with no inhibitions. That’s a win-win for us! Classes like this focus on creativity, cognitive development, coordination, friendship, and plain old-fashioned fun. Whether it be a dance therapy class, an expressive class, or a fitness-based class, they’re bound to have a blast. Dance schools here.
Littlies can sometimes get stage fright, or they are too bashful to sashay their way to fame. Dance schools generally have both exam-based classes and non-exam-based classes. Exams are often encouraged, but not forced onto anyone, so never fear! This way, if school and other pressures are piling up, kids can just enjoy their dance for a term or two instead of being assessed. Dance schools here.
Some kids are super serious about their hobbies. If you’ve got a future ballerina on your hands, exams are a great way for kids to get good fast. Through exams, your children can learn about confidence, discipline (in a kid-friendly way) and a sense of self-achievement. At these various dance schools, kids can get private tuition, take specific exam classes, or become a full-time dancer. Dance schools here.
