PREP DANCE PROGRAM
TAKE THE FIRST STEP
Our prep dance program is the first step in an exciting, rewarding and wonderful dance journey. Give your child the opportunity to grow and learn right here at Maximo Dance Studio. Our specialised prep dance program has been developed in house by our Principal with over 30 years of teaching experience. Your little dancer will receive the highest quality of teaching, while having fun every step of the way!
Our prep dance program is for little dancers as young as 3 and 4 years of age. Designed to teach them the fundamentals of dance in a fun, safe and nurturing environment; our prep dance program teachers young dancers to believe in themselves, giving them the confidence to perform on stage from an early age. Our young dancers are introduced to the learning environment without the need for parent support. We take great care in making our students feel comfortable in a group under the guidance of our wonderful teachers. The playful approach of this 3-year program develops many vital skills for their future. Our prep dance program helps to develop coordination, motor skills, balance, musicality, rhythm, concentration and team work. Upon completion, students graduate with a fantastic skill set under their belt, and are confident to start any style of dance as part of the next level program.
Ballet-based preparation classes
Our ballet-based preparation classes are a creative introduction to movement and form a strong foundation for a future in dance. These fun and energetic classes are designed to encourage creativity and develop imagination. The final year of the program provides a more structured class offering, focusing on ballet technique. This builds the framework for a strong, technical and talented dance journey for all young performers.

Jazz, musical Theatre, hip-Hop & acrobatics preparation classes
Similar to academic schooling where children study a variety of subjects, our prep dance program also offers a variety of foundation skills in the dance styles of Jazz, Musical Theatre, Hip-Hop and Acrobatics. This means that by the time children graduate from our prep program, they will have the necessary complete set of foundational skills to continue on learning dance within a structured syllabus. This allows all of our young dancers the chance to try a variety of dance styles to see what they enjoy and connect with. It also allows them to become a well-rounded performer, which is great for their confidence levels.
