Juniors Classes

Dance Masala Bollywood kids classes and dance crews offer the opportunity for your children to excel in dance; be part of a team; and have incredible performance opportunities! We do all-styles of Bollywood Dance and have created a unique dance syllabus that develops well-rounded and confident young dancers. Our program builds upon each child’s skills as they progress through the year, encouraging their growth through self-reflection and feedback. We absolutely love kids and want them to shine, while doing something they love. Read more about our teaching ethos here. Our classes are held at two locations in Fortitude Valley & Newstead – full schedule below.

About Our Class Levels

No two children are the same. Each child possesses different abilities, and we take this into special consideration when recommending students for certain classes. While age is a factor in our decision, our main consideration when moving a child up a class is their ability & maturity level, as well as their enjoyment of the main style that each group does. We do not believe in accelerating a child when they will struggle in a tougher class, and, in turn, we do not believe in keeping a child who is excelling in a lower class. Comparison is the enemy of joy, which is why here at Dance Masala we promote an environment in which each child is allowed to progress at their own rate.

What to bring:

  • – A water bottle
  • – Dance Uniform – Dance Masala shirt & Black Leggings
  • – A lined exercise book for theory
  • – Pencils, and an eraser
  • – Payals are optional if the routine is semi-classical

 

Venue: YCV Studios, 16 Proe Street, Newstead

About Our Class Levels

Our children’s Bollywood Teams have a higher expectation of choreography, commitment and performance. The Juniors & Teens do a shared 30-minute technique class between the two classes. These classes are audition only and in the audition we observe the children’s mindset, maturity and openness to feedback, as well as dance ability.
