Ballerinas in waiting will have a chance to perfect their skills and share experiences with other budding dancers now Tiny Tutus is holding classes in Sydney.
Previously based in Newcastle, successful dance business Tiny Tutus is expanding classes to cover Hornsby, Turramurra and Willoughby.
Aspiring dancers from 18 months to school age can attend the Tiny Tutus Tutu Fitting Day this Saturday between 10am and 12pm at the Willoughby Uniting Church, 10 Clanwilliam Street, Willoughby. Tiny Tutus students will be fitted for ballet shoes and tutus on the day.
A mini class will be held at 11am, allowing Sydney’s ballerinas to get a taste of what the classes will include.
Tiny Tutus founder Simone Cadell said all children naturally wanted to move to music and such movement and dance should be encouraged as it nurtured creativity, self-expression and confidence.
“As our tiny dancers’ natural aptitude for music blossoms, learning to dance becomes as natural as learning to walk and talk,” Simone explained.
“Creative movement and imagination are encouraged by Tiny Tutus through self expression and interpretation by using props to emphasise different styles of music.
“It is a safe family environment where the littlest of ballerinas can freely participate at their own level,” she added.
Tiny Tutus is a beginner ballet program for ballerinas, teaching them the basic concepts of classical ballet, movement, music appreciation, rhythm and poise.
Parents also play an important role in the promotion of dance by showing how fun dancing can be and their enthusiasm rubs off onto their children.
Tiny Tutus also has classes in the jazz and tap genre.
