Through participation in dance classes or childrens ballet classes at a professional ballet school or dance school, such as our introductory dance classes in Perth, children not only expand their movement vocabulary, developing control and skill of fundamental movements, but can develop self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as social skills. It is also important for children to be taught the correct basics of Classical Ballet, from an early age as ballet is the basis of all forms of dance.

Since 1973 The Graduate College of Dance in Perth has provided vocational classical ballet classes and dance training at an elite level. Due to the success of the vocational course for students aged 7-17 years of age, and requests for the College to provide Perth childrens dance lessons, the Introductory Dance Performance Course was developed to incorporate a syllabus specifically designed for younger students.
