Senior Program (16+ Years)

We have many classes available for your child aged 16 years or older.

Our Senior Program will not only give your child the opportunity to excel in their confidence, dance abilities and performance levels, their overall life skills will be enhanced preparing them for a joyful journey into early adulthood.

This age group tends to need an outlet from their stressful and busy lifestyles and keeping active in a nurturing and loving environment is the best way to keep your child focused, inspired and physically and socially active!

Senior Program

Class Information



Wednesdays 5:00-5:45pm

Enjoyment, grace and elegance is rich within our ballet classes and you will enjoy the unique teaching style of our teachers.

United Dance follows the Australian Teachers Of Dancing (ATOD) syllabus, which is designed to engage students in learning the foundation to all other dance styles along with the correct technique to improve musicality, strength and rhythm.

Students who take ballet classes build self-control, body awareness and self discipline as they learn to master increasingly technical moves.

Classes starting from $16 per week
Showcase costumes total $77 for 1x ballet costume


Wednesdays 5:45-6:30pm

Our tap classes are noisy, enjoyable and inspiring!

Students are taught this genre under the guidance of the ‘Glenn Wood Tap’ Syllabus which is designed and also followed by the famous ‘Tap Dogs’! Dancers join the wonderful, rustic and hard hitting street style of tap, where banging your feet on the ground and making as much noise as you can is accepted!

Classes starting from $16 per week
Showcase costumes total $77 for 1x tap costume

Jazz And Hip Hop Combo Class

Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm

Modern and dynamic, hip hop and jazz are certainly addictive.

These powerful, high-energy dance styles rely on a punchy beat and a little bit of sass!

Enjoy our unique takes on hip hop and jazz by learning the foundations of these styles in one class.

Classes starting from $18 per week
Showcase costumes total $154 for 1x jazz costume and 1x hip hop costume

Lyrical And Contemporary Combo Class

Wednesdays 7:30-8:15pm

When you participate in contemporary and lyrical combo classes at United Dance you will be dancing the basic foundations of ballet combined with our modern edge. Students are taught and encouraged to use their musicality, imagination, creativity, dynamics and emotions in class.

Young dancers also learn the correct technique to improve your grace, style, strength and flexibility to perform kicks, leaps, tricks and turns. We encourage all of our students to ‘let go’ in class to enjoy a wonderful feeling of freedom.

Classes starting from $16 per week
Showcase costumes total $154 for 1x lyrical costume and 1x contemporary costume

Tumbling & Acro

Fridays 5:00-5:45pm Level 2
Fridays 5:45-6:45pm Level 3

Our brand new Tumble Tots is perfect for those students who are interested in gymnastics, acrobatics and tumbling. This class also works on mobility, strength, fitness, balance and flexibility.

Level 1 consists of basic skills for beginners including; handstands, forward and backward rolls, bridges, cartwheels, front and back walkovers, shoulder stands, scorpions, partner skills etc. We currently have a 1A class and a 1B class which depend on skill level within certain age ranges.

Level 2 consists of a higher skill level including skills such as forward and back handsprings, forward and back tucks, aerials, fish rolls, chin stands, elbow stands etc. Level 2 cannot be reached until a skill assessment of level 1 skills is complete.

This new program consists of mandatory strength and conditioning to assure the safety and readiness for our students to perform these skills. Students who enrol in this new program need to be aware of the strength and conditioning component of the class, as this type of exercise is based on level of strength and flexibility. It is a stepping stone program, meaning we will not teach your child to perform skills they are not ready for, this is why the strength and flexibility component are so important.

Classes start from $16 per week
Showcase costumes total $77 for 1x costume
