Early Childhood Dance Program

Is your little one constantly dancing around the house? Do they love dressing up? Do you have a future dancer on your hands?? We take budding dancers from as young as 2 years old! Read on to find out more 🙂

Ignite Dance Co. is a dance studio based in Padstow, Sydney, proudly servicing Padstow, Panania, Revesby, Picnic Point and surrounding areas for 15 years.

At Ignite Dance Co., we regard instilling a love for dance in students as one of our most important jobs. Our dance program for students in their preschool years does just that, and more! Programmed by an early childhood professional, our preschool dance programs are regularly updated to enhance your child’s creativity and develop co-ordination in a fun, friendly environment.

With the use of music, props and instruments, your child is introduced to the foundations of dance through basic technique and creative movement. Young children learn best when they are engaged and having fun. Most of the time our little ones are too busy picking flowers in their princess garden or being a scary lion at the zoo, that they don’t realise they’re learning basic ballet positions, learning to count music, or developing performance skills!

All students have the opportunity to perform in our End of Year Concert, where the pre-schoolers are the stars of the show! Each child also receives a trophy (personalised with their name) to celebrate everything they have learnt and achieved that year 🙂

Please see below the classes on offer for our Pre-Schoolers. All classes are also available for both boys and girls and are catered to suit the growth and development of all our students.

Mini Movers (2 – 3 years)

With the use of creative movement & props, these classes will follow an imaginative program that keeps our youngest dancers engaged and wanting to learn more 🙂 It introduces the basic foundations of dance, encouraging co-ordination, spatial & dynamic awareness, gross & fine motor skills. Students will be encouraged to use imaginative play, facilitating the actual execution of steps. This class will encourage that initial love for dance & movement which is so important for our littlest dancers 🙂


Pre-Ballet (2-3 years & 4 – 5 years)

Ballet is taught in a separate class for all of our preschool age groups. This class will focus only on ballet, learning steps & positions appropriate for children at this age. While it will mostly be an open class, our 4 – 5 yr old students will also learn some parts of the R.A.D syllabus (in preparation for their move to Pre-Primary the year after), which include basic technique as well as free movement and creative dance.


Future Stars (4 – 5 years)

This class has been developed to be a perfect transition between preschool to pre-primary classes. In an upbeat, fast-paced class, students will get to experience a range of dance styles in a combination of jazz, hip hop and song & dance. This class will focus on both co-ordination and performance skills 🙂


*Pre-Ballet can be combined with Mini Movers for 2 – 3 year olds, and with Future Stars for 4 – 5 year old
