I absolutely recommend Confident Kids. I have found this school to be completely about the kids, building them up and guiding them throughout. I'm super happy to have my children be a part of something so special.
2 - 5 years
We value knowing and supporting each individual child and family. To ensure this is the case, our classes are either 45 minutes or one hour long. This extra time ensures we can balance connecting with our students as well as getting through all of the necessary coursework.
All Pre-School classes are also taught by very experienced teachers who have a wealth of knowledge about how to best support our youngest dancers.
While ALL students are welcome at our school, should your child have additional needs, please let us know so we can support you to find the best class that will help them to shine! Similarly, if your child has specific goals and you are looking for additional guidance, we would love to support you!
We are proud to be the official location for this award-winning program in Cranbourne West.
Ready Set Dance is endorsed by early learning experts and focuses on developing the 3 C’s – Coordination, Creativity and Confidence!
Ready Set Dance has two class options:

This beautiful program covers the fundamentals of Classical Ballet, in a fun and engaging way.
While creating a strong foundation of skills, it also encourage confidence, rhythm and coordination of movement.
Classes are age appropriate and include props, activities and fun music.
Each class also includes life skill fundamentals such as taking turns, sharing, respect and positive self talk. Children are encouraged to make friends and express themselves in our safe classroom environment.

Please note all fees (including additional and optional) below.
We have NO YEARLY ENROLMENT FEE
Fees can be paid:
- By the term, in full, prior to the start of classes, via bank transfer.
- By the month, via direct debit (please note: enrolment is still by the term, 3 payments per term on the first of the month)
- If you require other arrangements (eg external funding), please let us know so we can support you.
Public holidays and shorter and longer terms will be adjusted accordingly.
We have done our very best to keep our prices manageable, understanding the economic pressures on families, while also covering our costs, and the increase in CPI. This has resulted in a $1.25 increase for our one hour classes.
Please note; all classes are paid by the term. Multi-class and sibling discounts remain the same as in 2023.
GROUP DANCE/SINGING/ACRO/CIRCUS/ACTING CLASSES
30 minute classes = $14.75
45 minute classes = $16.75
One hour classes = $18.75
Performance fees and costume fees will be:
Costumes Hire = $28 per costume (2 costumes per class - billed throughout the year to take the pressure off families at concert time)

MAKE UPS AND REFUNDS
For our group classes we have always accommodated unlimited make ups (subject to availability), however as group classes are a team activity, we ask families to please choose a class time they can commit to each week. Attending different classes each week will not support student's development, both in relation to skills and friendships.
In 2024 we are also asking families to communicate absences to our office prior to class. This will be a requirement to be able to book a make up. Notifying the office of absences allows space for other students waiting for make ups and ensures we are all supporting each other.
Choosing to take solo classes requires additional commitment. Teachers are paid for their time, whether or not students attend. In 2024 we will not be offering make up classes for solo classes. Refunds for solo classes are also not available. We understand that for some it may be difficult to commit each week, we encourage these students to attend group classes with unlimited make ups. We thank you for you understanding and support to ensure we can continue to offer solo opportunities.
Enrolment is by the term. Refunds and credits are not offered for part participation in a term, unless enrolling part way through the term. Two weeks notice is required when cancelling direct debit payments for the start of a new term.
ADDITIONAL COSTS TO BE AWARE OF
Please note: We do our very best to ensure all additional costs are kept to an absolute minimum while providing professional quality experiences.
We know dance, singing and acting can be expensive, and we feel classes should be accessible for all, so work hard to ensure this is possible. We offer all of the fun additional options such as costume photos and concert videos, but these are optional to order and not compulsory.
We also focus on providing top quality costumes to hire to keep costs down and ensure parents don't need to sew.
UNIFORM AND CORRECT SHOES
Please find this information in your 2023 handbook (this will be released in January).
