1. Marsden Swim School
If your little one loves splashing about in the water, then help him or her to cultivate a love of swimming. Marsden Swim School’s Learn to Swim programme will teach your child the basics, with the option of progressing to the Stroke Development programme. Later on, kids may join the mini, junior and senior swim squads.
2. L’academie de Danse
This friendly ballet school, founded by French dancer, ballet teacher and choreographer Maud Toledano, offers daily training, several performances a year and presentations at international ballet competitions for young students who want to be professional dancers. Several of the school’s students have even been accepted to prestigious companies like the Paris Opera, San Francisco Ballet and Jeune Ballet Geneve! There’s a special Baby Ballerinas programme for little ones from the age of 3, which prepares them for ballet in a fun way.
3. Tanglin Arts Studio (TAS)
Does your child love to dance and move? Then check out TAS for a wide repertoire of styles such as acrobatics, ballet, musical theatre, jazz and more. The school is open to children of all ages and abilities, and classes are focused on developing self-esteem, confidence and a love for dance and fitness. Additionally, TAS is an Australian Teachers of Dancing (ATOD) school. So your child can sit for annual ATOD examinations if they prefer.
