Arioso Dance Studio offers children's creative dance classes aim to help develop movement and listening skills, to grow self-confidence and to develop an appreciation of music. Interaction and cooperation with others is encouraged.  Children aged from 3 years upwards are welcome. 

"Like" Arioso Dance Studio on Facebook to receive updates about classes etc.



Classes use mainly (but not exclusively) classical music. Set exercises and dances are taught in every class, however memorizing a "set of steps" is not the focus of the class. All classes end with free dance where children listen to music and then dance to that music in an expressive fashion.

Please email dance@arioso.net.nz for a brochure with more detailed background information.
