6 Unique Dance Schools in Perth

Groove on down to a wide range of dance styles and moves
My poor Mum had the highest of high hopes for me when I was a child. I think she foresore a classicly trained pianist, fluent in French and Italian, pirouetting her talents across the world of creative arts like a dainty little Pavlova. Go figure. I just wanted to be Cindy Brady. I couldn't even pull that off as I resembled a brown eyed olive with limbs.

Luckily every sport I was enrolled in was for the sole purpose of having fun and these days there are plenty of unique options for your little dancing queen or king. Here's hoping for my daughters sake the uncoordination skips a generation!

Jazzie Cazzies

If your little groover is not quite ready for one specific discipline and is under five years then Jazzie Cazzies has so much to offer.

High energy dance and movement full of fun and fitness for boys and girls.

Classes are held both north and south of the river so there is sure to be a class near you.

Bollywood Dance Studio

How cool would it be to bust out some Bollywood moves every now and then on the dance floor. Well at least the kids can get away with it.

Get ready for a fantastic workout as you learn to express yourself through modern Indian dance which is the Bollywood style.

Located in Cloverdale there is a great range of classes on offer including Bolly Kidz 5-12 years, Bolly Teens 13-17years and Adult classes for beginners, intermediate, advanced and fitness.

Danza Viva Spanish Dance Academy

How glamorous are Flamenco dancers! Visiting El Caballo Blanco when I was very young, it was never about the horses for me, but the Spanish souvenir dolls. I'd put my Cindy Brady dreams on hold and pretend I was a Flamenco dancer twirling about the house.

Danza Viva can assist in those dreams as they offer beginners and advanced classes in Flamenco for both adults and children.

Introduce your children to this beautiful and creative discipline with a rich history of over two hundred years to inspire.
