Kids dance classes in West Adelaide
Exciting kids dance classes for pre-schoolers to teens
The difference with our West Adelaide kids dance classes is how we balance personable relationships, which foster your child’s artistic growth and development, with a healthy dose of discipline.
As a non-competitive dance club, we provide classes which encourage dance for the love of learning movement in a supportive studio environment.
Acrobatic Arts (Ages 5 to 12+)
Have an active child? Acrobatic Arts combine physically challenging acrobatic movements and dance. Great for boys and girls, it’s designed to promote excellence in flexibility, strength, balance, limbering and tumbling.
Kids learn in a safe environment to flip, perform walkovers, back bends and cartwheels, all under the supervision of a qualified trainer. You can also choose to join in an exam process through an accredited syllabus which gives a great sense of achievement to our little ones.
The levels begin at primary through to level 12. The children will have progression cards they work through to achieve each skill in each level. Once our students have mastered the skills in their level they move up to the next allowing them to develop their skills at their own pace.
It is preferred but not compulsory that for this class students are taking another technical dance class
NEW Strength/Condition & Flexibility
This intensive class runs for a 6 week block in each term. Commencing Feb 21st-March 27th 2020.
The perfect class for all ages, if you are looking to safely learn the rules to increased or improved flexibility, a stronger core and overall body strength. This class assists in understanding how important the brain/body connection is. Learn many different stretching techniques with a certified teacher with focus on best practise in injury prevention. In some cases we may use equipment such as therabands, ankle weights, blocks & rollers.
Brilliant for those already taking Level 2 and up Acrobatics or a Jazz class, or perhaps externally attending a calisthenics club.
TINY TUMBLERS - Acrobatic Arts (Ages 3 to 5yrs)
A fun filled class of energetic movements on the floor and across our acrobatic mat. We do some songs to age appropriate music, warming up, stretching, progressions across the room including donkey kicks, bear walks, skips, marching, galloping and basic turning skills.
At first, they will be successful at circle learning while progressing to travelling in straight lines and waiting their turn. Visual bright coloured station cards are used to assist the student in replicating the position or action successfully.
The children will love working through their report card, collecting stickers and being rewarded with certificates. At the beginning of class parents/carers and their children can together march into the room to meet on a magic mat. We then encourage the children to wave goodbye.
We do recommend that children are potty trained and out of nappies and are able to separate from mum for the class.

School Holiday Kids Dance Workshops
DCM’s mission is to create interactive and collaborative workshops in a friendly environment.
We hold one-off workshops in the school holidays that can be anything from dancing to live Bongo's to learning special floor Hip Hop 'breaking' tricks. Children can either feel the beat of the bongo in their body and experience exciting live music or feel completely proud when they master a dynamic floor breaking movement.
You can also keep an eye out for our next workshops here.
