babyballet® is a fun, award-winning pre-school dance program for girls and boys from 18 months to 4 years.
Tinies (18 months – 3 years), Movers and Tap (3 – 4 years). With a real focus on learning through play and the imagination, the unique babyballet® syllabus offers the fundamentals of ballet, jazz and tap where every child can build their confidence and skills in dance as their first steps to learning their basic dance technique.
It also develops key developmental areas such as learning manners, discipline and respect while developing, coordination, musicality, balance, posture, and rhythm.
Once our babyballet® students have graduated from the Movers class they will transition into our after school classes where they can further their ballet training with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Pre-Primary ballet syllabus or branch out into a variety of different genres offered in our Mini Warriors Program.

Just wanted to say how much fun Annabelle had at baby ballet today. We enjoyed the online classes- but being back at the studio brought her so much joy... we were up at 4:30 ready to go to the studio with the big girls ? Congratulations on reopening and doing everything to keep us connected during the forced shut down period.
The school runs workshops across all styles of dance and musical theatre. Students and other dancers from around the area are given exciting opportunities to expand their knowledge of dance and express their creativity outside of regular classes. The director Diana Sakaris is highly experienced in dance and teaching, creating a professional yet supportive and fun environment for all teachers and students. Miss Di’s warm and loving nature means the studios are more than just a school but a second home where students can be nurtured while they grow as people, as well as artists.
My daughter Jessie loves putting on her favourite tutu each week, singing and dancing around with Twinkle in her babyballet class. The lessons are lots of fun and she loves the mix of ballet and tap. The classes are wonderfully supportive, talented teachers and gives us a lovely opportunity to meet new mums and the kids meet new friends!

My daughter has only been at Tempo Red for two terms but in that time her dance skill and ability has grown exponentially as has her self-confidence. This is due to the passionate, professional staff, very talented, experienced teachers and a culture that fosters support and encouragement between the kids. From day one the girls in Zivas’ class took her under their wing and welcomed her.
