Our classes

At Promenade Dance School, we teach a range of dance styles. Our aim is to meet the individual students needs in each class and recognise that learning how to dance is a fun and exciting activity. We also teach all our students and parents / carers to foster a sense of community and belonging. Each year we provide performance opportunities to students through the annual concert and Eisteddfod participation.

Classic Ballet
Classical Ballet - Promenade Dance Schoo

Classical Ballet

Classical Ballet is an important technical foundation for all other dance styles. Classes offered at Promenade implement the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabuses.


The RAD offers examinations and assessments which encourage students of all ages to work towards and achieve at developmentally appropriate levels. Examinations are optional for students. Classes are offered from Pre-Primary and Primary levels into eight graded levels and five vocational levels. From Grade 2, ballet exam students need to undertake a minimum of two classes per week in order to be eligible for their exam. Please tell us at the beginning of the year if your child is interested in taking examinations.


The Jazz programs offered at Promenade are based on a combination of Comdance and International Dance Technique (ITD) syllabus'. Comdance jazz syllabus contains an amazing body of work choreographed and developed into a sound progressive, developmental sequence by Rachelle Conroy and Sandra Breen. Some of Australia’s leading artists have contributed their choreography to the syllabus in both exercises and routines. The work is contemporary, technically challenging and a great preparation in all forms of jazz for today’s performance demands. The IDT syllabus is designed to develop plyometric agility, strength, fitness, flexibility and strong jazz technique in dancers of all ages and abilities. Created by Lucy Ellis Dance Coaching and Kylie Norris (#Norrisfit), IDT includes progressive stretch exercises and age appropriate conditioning exercises to strengthen muscles, increase agility, control and power in dance combos. The syllabus grades progressively train all relevant Kick, Turn and Jump techniques. IDT aims to keep the dancer motivated to reach their full potential as a technical dancer.


Jazz classes are available to students from 5 years of age.


The Tap programs offered at Promenade are based on the Tapatak syllabus. The Tapatak Oz syllabus was created by Christine Denny. Christine was a founding tap teacher at the famous Brent St Studios in Sydney, where she taught for over 8 years alongside the country’s most prestigious dance teachers. She also had 6 years with ED5 International, as well as guest master classes all over Australia for the past 26 years.


Students work progressively through graded technical exercises and combinations.


Tap classes are available to students from 5 years of age.
