Kids Classes

Elevator Studios Kids Classes

At Elevator Studios we provide quality dance classes for children aged 3-17 in a safe, clean and inspiring environment. Our teachers approach their classes with knowledge, insight and interest for every student.

Children can enjoy classes in Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Acro, Ballet, Boys Only Hip Hop, Kinder Ballet & Jazz and Musical Theatre.

Classes are generally grouped by age or school year level, however in some circumstances, children may be accelerated based on ability.  Students who are not up to the class standard of their age group may be required to take classes in a younger age group, in addition, in order to develop their skills.

We love welcoming new students to Elevator, however mid-year enrolments are subject to approval. Please read the following enrolment info:

  • Students are encouraged to enrol from the beginning of the year (We run on Victorian State School term dates)

  • Students are welcome to join during the course of term 1 & 2, however start of the term is preferred

  • Term 1 & 2 classes focus on skill development and technical progression. This is a vital aspect for students’ learning in all dance styles

  • Enrolments at the commencement of term 3 will only be accepted if the student can demonstrate an adequate skill level that meets the general level of the class. Students who do not already have the skills required to participate in the concert will be recommended an alternative class or a deferred enrolment (to commence at the start of the following year).

  • No enrolments will be accepted during term 4. Concert work commences in term 3 and to ensure class time is fairly allocated to current students, no new students will be permitted to join

  • For further discussion on the above policy, please call the studio on (03)9077 5459 or email
