Young dancers will grow in confidence as they are supported to develop skills, technique, strength, flexibility and coordination in fun and supportive dance classes at our Hornsby Studio. 

We offer classes in Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Hip Hop for this age group, providing a solid foundation for future dance progression and skills transferrable beyond the Studio.

The high point of the dance year for many, GLM presents a Showcase each December - two fabulous evenings in which our entire student body get to show their progression and perform the dances they have been learning in their classes for their family, friends and loved ones. You will receive information about Showcase in your Welcome Booklet at the start of the year (or when you first enrol, if joining later), and more information is released over the year as Showcase nears.
