Dance Masala Bollywood kids classes offers your child a complete Bollywood dance education! Classes run on Saturday mornings in Newstead. Our dance syllabus develops well-rounded and confident young dancers. Dance choreography & technique is supplemented by lessons about Indian Culture, the cultural significance of certain dances, plus a strong focus on confidence building & personal development. From Bollywood Dhamaka, Indo-Contemporary, Folk Fusion, Semi-Classical and Bollywood Hip Hop & Robotics – we do it all!
Our program builds upon each child’s skills as they progress through the year, encouraging their growth through progress reports, 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.

About Our Class Levels
No two children are the same. Each child possesses different abilities, and we take this into special consideration when splitting up our classes. While age is a factor in our decision, our main consideration when moving a child up a class is their ability. We do not believe in accelerating a child when they will struggle in a higher 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.
