Tiptoe Dance is a classically based programme for children aged 2 to 5, and it is a program that was pioneered at Brisbane Dance Theatre by Anastacia McCallum. We offer young children the opportunity to learn dance fundamentals in a happy, inspired, fun environment.
We offer a range of age-appropriate ballet classes, from Prep Ballet for children in prep at school, through to Classical Ballet for children aged 6 and older. Brisbane Dance Theatre follows the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet (ACB) – Vaganova Training and assessment program.
We have two Pointe classes available - Pre-Pointe lessons begin in Level Three, while students start performing Pointe work in their Level Four exams. These classes are aimed at giving children the strength and flexibility to have a long and successful career on Pointe without injury.
