At A Star Dance & Performing Arts we believe that everyone can be a star.
We offer classes for all children (from 18 months old) all the way up to adults. We believe that everyone has the opportunity to step out and DANCE!
We run classes at Flinders Park, Collinswood, Glandore and Brighton.
Do you have a little one that can't stop singing and dancing? Does your little star just "have to move and groove" when they see Emma Wiggle on the TV? Why not try a dance class? We have dance classes for children as young as 18 months. These classes allow our youngest stars to shine next to their grown up so that they feel safe and secure in a new space.
During the April school holidays we will be running 30 minute come & try classes for new little dancers (18 months - 5 years old). These classes are ballet based and allow the children to explore the space with their grown up. These holiday classes are $15. At the end of the class you are welcome to chat with one of our A Star Teachers to discuss class options and uniform.
These holiday classes are a great way to get out of the house and have some fun with your little star. Just pop your little star in something they can move in. T shirt, leggings, little skirt and bare feet are perfect.
For the safety of the other dancers please ensure your child does not wear a cape, wings, tiaras or wands. Bare feet and ballet shoes only.
Bookings are essential as we are unable to overbook due to current government conditions. Should you (or your little star) be unable to attend on the day due to illness please let us know ASAP. We can then arrange an alternate trial class within 4 weeks.

We would like to thank you and all your support people for such a wonderful performance on the weekend. You have worked tirelessly with such patience and nurturing attitudes to develop all of the girls you teach. I'm sure all of them love you the same way my girls do. It was a delight to see all the girls, not just mine, but I was very proud of Claire and Isabella, dance with such self-confidence and poise. We have been so lucky to find you and your ballet school, to open the door to the joy of dance to my daughters and also Bryce. I'm sure he has his love of music and dance from your 'Mum and me' classes attending in vitro and as a small baby. It has been a privilege to have you in our daughters life and given them a wonderful creative outlet to explore the performing arts. Ursula
Dear Miss. Bianca, all the beautiful Ballet Teachers Miss. Maria, Miss. Tessa, and all Staff, I do not normally feel compelled to send e-mails to people or businesses, however as a first time 'dance mum' I have been so impressed with how everything is run and organised. When I first called to enquire about classes for my daughter Grace, the lady I spoke to was helpful and sent follow up information for us to attend an introductory holiday class. At this class we were met with the most cheerful and welcoming Ballet teachers I knew immediately you would be a great fit for my daughter. When we started Grace struggled to separate from me and it was suggested we change to a class where I could be in the room for her to gain confidence. This proved to be a great move and a wonderful suggestion as she did gain confidence, she enjoyed participating in class and feels comfortable with her Ballet teacher. Grace is now at the point where she asks me not to enter the room! I would like to thank Miss. Bianca for her support in developing Graces confidence through her kind, caring and beautiful personality. I also want to thank everyone for organising the all the concerts. I could not even imagine all the hours that went into organising all the costumes, timetables, staffing, venue hire, accessories, theatre stall, ticketing, online information and more, for all your students and families. As a non-tech head, I have easily downloaded and managed the team app for info and updates and been so impressed with the efficiency of relevant information via the app and e-mail. I want to thank you for having the concert accessories available to purchase at the theatre rehearsals, so convenient having everything I need right there. We greatly appreciate the incredible efforts of all involved to put on this performance for our ballerina and our family to enjoy. Grace was so excited to perform and we are so proud of her. I believe you are all offering a quality Ballet experience with a caring and nurturing approach. We will be recommending you to our friends.
I'd like to express my sincere thanks for such an amazing concert on the weekend. My daughter performed on Saturday. I must admit I was very nervous as it was her first time performing this year but she absolutely loved it. We were so proud of her. I'd like to pass on my thanks to all of the ballet teachers/staff who made it such a smooth experience for us. A huge thank you to Bianca, she did an amazing job and made my daughter feel safe and comfortable. Even when we were waiting for the concert to begin, my husband and I felt very comfortable knowing that she was backstage and in safe hands. All of the work that contributed to the concert was very well managed and it definitely showed.
