Our Kidz stuff programme is a central feature of the dance centre's appeal to Kidz from tots to teens. A supportive and safe environment with qualified and experienced dance professionals ensures that your child's development is properly but discretely nurtured so that the kidz can just enjoy the fun of learning and dancing. Dancing's great not only for both physical and mental co-ordination but also, and equally importantly, for the child's self-confidence and social facility. The kidz progress is verified by external examiners and their genuine talent, progress and achievements are marked by a series of graded awards, which they prize and love to collect.
