These programs have been specifically designed to support children develop the 3 C’s. Regular and sustained participation in Ready Set Dance classes helps children to develop their CONFIDENCE as they try new things, practice and consolidate existing skills and experience success and mastery.

The carefully sequenced and playful program develops physical COORDINATION, the COORDINATION of the senses, the coordination of mental processes and language and the COORDINATION of social connections. The third C, CREATIVITY, is recognised as an important aspect of learning in, and for, the 21st Century when the world is changing at such a rapid rate. Ready Set Dance provides children with a range of skills and capabilities across various domains of development and supports them to use these skills creatively. Children are encouraged to use their imaginations, to think divergently and to explore their own creative responses to the invitations within dance, music and drama.

The environment and people at DSA are so welcoming and amazing and treat everyone like family.

DSA is so proud to be an official READY SET DANCE location. READY SET DANCE is a one-hour combo class that includes jazz, tap, hip-hop, singing, music and a whole lot of FUN for girls and boys. The READY SET DANCE program is based on creating the 3 C’s. Confidence, Coordination and Creativity! Targeted at ages two to five years old, the syllabus is divided into two levels. Level 1, 2-3 Years and Level 2, 4-5 Years. Ready Set Dance is designed specifically to get pre-schoolers and toddlers moving and grooving. The curriculum takes a playful approach to learning and dancing that ignites the imagination and curiosity of youngsters and gets them excited to learn. Recognised and endorsed by leading childhood experts as a wonderful early learning program, READY SET DANCE has been developed by 5 of Australia’s most respected and well known industry professionals with over 30 years of industry experience working with young kids.

Little Dynamites is a concept combining gymnastic skills, dance and music to stimulate physical and mental development, and instil a love of physical activity from an early age. Encourages little ones’ confidence, balance and co-ordination, which in turn improve the confidence in their own ability. Lots of fun with the focus on development of gross motor skills – jumping, running, climbing, balancing and also an introduction to tumbling such as forward rolls, bridge, cartwheels and handstands. Children will expend lots of energy, gain motor skills, increase their core strength and stimulate imagination.

What they're saying...

My daughter started Ready Set Dance at Dynamite Studios at the beginning of this year and she absolutely loves it! This program has encouraged my daughter to try and experience new things and every week after her lesson she comes home singing and performing little routines that she has learnt. My daughter is now apart of an incredible community full of fun and opportunity and we couldn’t be happier.

My daughter started Dynamite Studio's Australia in the READY SET DANCE program when she was just 2 years old to her build her confidence and she was terribly shy. She is now 5 and through much persistence and care shown by the team she was chosen to be a part of their performance group! We are truly grateful and it is like one big family.

Bear does the baby Acro and Ready Set Dance programs 3 days a week. His confidence and personality have grown so much since he started and it is without a doubt his favourite place to be! All of the staff are amazing, he has made new friends his own age and he adores his teachers and the high school students who have not just become his friends but awesome role models for him too. We are so glad we chose DSA!
