Jamie's Academy of Dance is now ONLINE!

During these unpredictable times, we want to create a sense of normality for our students and their families!

That’s why we have reimagined our traditional studio classes and redesigned them to fit our ‘new normal’ in an online format. Creating engaging live classes that can be followed in the safety of your own home.

"I just wanted to share how happy I am with the opportunity to join your online class today. I like how innovative you have been in being able to offer dance education continuously, despite what is happening to all businesses globally. This is working very well for us so thank you for trying! You have no idea what that 45 minutes of “break” means to us!!"

Welcome to Jamie’s Academy of Dance

Our passionate, knowledgeable and nurturing team of teachers will guide each child so that they can reach their full potential. We are passionate about giving our students an inspiring, caring, safe environment so they feel a sense of purpose while they are restricted to their homes.

Students will build special friendships within our family. Our classes are a space where they can escape from the daily pressure of whats happening in the real world, an environment that is supportive and encouraging. Hearing the music and focusing on poise, rhythm, technique and mastering steps allows our students to loose themselves in the moment.

Our aim is to develop in the students a sense of:

  • Self-discipline and motivation.
  • Safe dance technique.
  • Knowledge of music, anatomy, nutrition and good health.
  • And most of all a joy in dance and performance.

Whether you are a beginner, returning to dance or have danced all your life – Jamie’s Academy of Dance is the place to be.

Budding Ballerina’s Program

Congratulations on enrolling in our Budding Ballerina’s Program.

We will be in touch with you shortly to introduce ourselves and finalise payment details.

We are so looking forward to dancing with your budding ballerina!

Budding Ballerina’s Program

Does your child want to be a Ballerina?

Experience the warmth and magic of our Budding Ballerina Program now! From the moment your child walks through our studio door they will be inspired to stand tall and move gracefully.

Your child will experience:

  • A ballerina High Tea
  • Special guest appearance from our senior ballerinas
  • Performance in our end of year concerts
  • The option to enter exams
  • A parent participation class where they get to teach you something they have mastered.

Our program begins on the 23rd of July.

Register now to book your place or find out more below…

Your child does not need any prior dance experience!

Has your child danced before? If yes, then great! We look forward to seeing what they can do and inspiring them to learn even more.

Has your child decided they would like to try a dance class for the very first time? Fantastic! They will be welcomed with open arms as they begin their dancing journey.

Your child will learn the foundations of classical ballet, perform in our end of year concert, be given the opportunity to take exams if they wish and learn so many wonderful traits that extend far beyond our studio walls. Passion, commitment, confidence, team work, performance, dedication, poise and grace are just some of the wonderful benefits of dance that set children up on a wonderful path for life.

Whether your child goes on to dance en pointe (the tips of their toes) or merely walks out of their class with their head held a little higher, a smile from ear to ear and the love of dance then our job is done. What ever their journey may be, our aim is to ignite their passion and create a magical experience.

Our Budding Ballerina’s Program is run on the following days and times:

Grade 1 & 2 students
Monday – 4.15-5.00

Take Time out!

Our studio is located at the H.E Parker Reserve, Heathmont Road Heathmont.

You do not need to stay while your child is in class. Enjoy some ‘me’ time and go for a walk around the oval or nick up to the shops for a coffee. If you have other children you can play at the playground located right outside our studio or if you really need to… as a last resort, go home and prepare dinner.

We like to encourage you to do something enjoyable in your hour with one less child! Know that your budding ballerina will be safe inside our studio having a wonderful time!

Our Studio

Enjoy the benefits of our wonderful dance community – Our dance family!

Our studio is your child’s home away from home – A safe space where they can escape the daily pressure of school. Spend time with others that have the same interest and passion. A place where they can focus on their dreams. Be taken to their happy place, swept away by the music, inspired by fellow students and nurtured by our team of educators. 

Give them the gift of dance today.

Enrol now!

When: Starts Monday 23rd & Tuesday 24th July

Where: H.E Parker Reserve, Heathmont Road, Heathmont

Investment: $78 per month 

Special Guest Appearance!

During our budding ballerinas program our younger students will enjoy a very special guest experience from our inspiring senior ballerinas. They will be able to interact, ask questions, make new friends and watch them dance. 

Perform on the big stage!

At the end of the year students will enjoy dancing on the big stage in our concert.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to invite the grandparents, friends and relatives as your child shows you what they have been working so hard on in class.

This is where the real memories and magic is made.

Smiling faces, sparkling eyes and confident little performers blossom into stars!

With preparation and encouragement some students are still a little nervous to go on stage but wow, you should see them when they come off. The amount of little voices saying how much they want to do it all over again is truly magnificent.

Bright lights, costumes, special make up and hair… your child will experience a magical performance and will no doubt watch the performance DVD over and over and over.

Watch your child transform into a graceful ballerina.

DRESS CODE

A Dancer’s attire and grooming greatly determines the attitude and focus of a student toward her/his class work, therefore we require that a certain standard of appropriate neatness be observed at all times.

Cover Ups

Students should have their class wear covered while travelling to and from class. Jamie’s Academy of Dance hoodies are recommended and available for purchase at the studio. Track pants should also be worn and we have a selection of sizes also available.

Underwear

Both tights and leotards have cotton lined panels that act as underwear. Briefs/undies should not be worn and getting you pre-schooler use to this from the very beginning is highly recommended however they will be accepted in pre-school classes only.

Jewellery

Stud or small earrings are the only type of jewellery permitted in dance classes. Watches, necklaces, large rings and bracelets are potentially hazardous and should not be worn.

Shoes

Do not wear dance shoes outside. Oil and dirt is hazardous when tracked into the studio and are damaging to the shoes. Please write names inside all dance shoes. Be sure the shoes fit properly. They should be snug – not fitted with ample room for growth. Toe nails should be cut short and straight to avoid soreness.

Ballet shoes should have the drawstring pulled taunt around the foot, then tie and tuck into the shoe. No bows or long drawstrings. If sewing on elastic please see your teacher for advice on how to sew these on properly.

We have a selection of second hand shoes, please speak to a teacher if you would like to sell or have a look through these items.

What our dance parents are saying

Please find below some kind testimonials we’ve received from our proud parents at Jamie’s Academy of Dance. So don’t just take our word for it – take theirs…

Today was something so special, Addisyn’s first ever dance concert. She went through every emotion in one day and at the end is beaming and had the time of her life. It was such an honour to dance on stage with her in the mummy-daughter dance and something I’m not likely to ever be able to do again. She said ‘Mummy I’m so proud of you for dancing on stage’ but I think she doesn’t even understand how proud I was of her. Thanks to the best dance teacher ever – Jamie, who has taught her so much in a short amount of time. She idolises you and is already asking when her next class is.

Addisyn, 3 years old - Danced in three routines

Jamie’s Academy of Dance is the perfect blend of a professionally run dance studio whilst creating a welcoming, supportive and nurturing environment for the children who are each encouraged to fulfil their own potential and have lots of fun whilst doing it. Thank you Jamie and your wonderful team for creating such a special space for our children to express themselves.

Tori P

It’s obvious that the teachers at Jamie’s Academy of Dance enjoy what they do. The effort and dedication that they pour into each lesson is impressive. My daughter loves going to her lessons and has developed her confidence whilst making new friends along the way.

What a great dance school! Friendly atmosphere and teachers who are talented, patient and professional.  We have been with Jamie’s Academy of Dance for near on 7 years. They aren’t just a dance school they are family.

Angela M

My daughter wanted to do ballet, now almost 4 years later she does all types of dance and just loves it.  Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Acro you name it, she has signed up for it.  Such a variety of classes on offer with great teachers who genuinely care about all their students to ensure they do their best but have fun whilst doing it.  WELL DONE and THANK YOU.

Carla D

My daughter just started dancing this year, and she has loved going every week. It has been really helpful in building her confidence. As a parent, I have particularly appreciated the age-appropriate music that is chosen for the young kids to dance to.
