About KiX Dance Studio
KiX Dance Studio has been in operation since 2004.
We teach quality dance to children and adults. We ensure that all our students are learning the fundamental principles of dance technique in a safe and professional manner, whether they are attending one class a week or many. KiX aims to nurture a passion and enjoyment of dance and promote confidence in all students.
Our class sizes are small with no more than 12-14 children in a class.
We pride ourselves on having age appropriate costumes, music and choreography. ALL COSTUMES ARE HIRED.
KiX offers composite, as well as individual, classes in ballet, jazz and tap. We also have classes in contemporary, hip hop, acrobatics and musical theatre. As dance is very demanding on the body, conditioning or strength work forms a part of all classes, even in the Little KiX class we start off with an obstacle course warm up. We welcome adults to our casual classes and teens who would like to try our jazz/hip hop class.
Throughout the year KiX students work towards performing in a half year casual concert, an end of year formal concert and most students will participate in examinations as well. Students may also choose to participate in competitions or workshops throughout the year.
Our Director Natalie is an Associate Member of Australian Teachers of Dancing (ATOD) and has been teaching dance for more than 30 years. ATOD offers a comprehensive syllabus in ballet, contemporary, national, jazz, hip hop, tap, street tap and musical theatre. Natalie is a certified member of 'Imagine A Place To Be Me' a program specifically designed for preschool children. She is certified to teach Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT). PBT is an innovative program designed to train dancers in muscle memory to improve technique, flexibility and longevity in dance, while gaining a greater awareness of their muscles and how to use them properly to achieve their goals in ballet. Natalie keeps up to date with what is going on in the world of dance and regularly attends seminars, workshops and courses.
