Our goals as an Angelina Ballerina
Dance Academy are...

  • Effective - educationally sound
  • Safe - creating a safe environment for young dancers to explore
    their creativity
  • Progressive and developmentally appropriate - We recognise that every
    child develops in the same sequence but has an individual rate and quality of
    development. Age 0 -7 is the critical period of cognitive / neural, motor,
    socio-emotional, and language development.

    Children in this age group are in the midst of developing every neural area in the
    brain. Neurological benefits of movement; we use more of our brain when we are
    moving than when we are seated, neuronal connections made through movement
    help develop neuronal connections for reading. Student participants of dramatic
    arts have improved emotional, physical and cognitive functioning.

What to wear

Uniforms are not expected for the first two weeks when you start,
after then students are expected to wear the correct attire. Our dancer
will show you what you should wear to Angelina Ballerina dance class
and where you can buy the items.

Your hair needs to be neat and tidy so you can dance freely.
That’s why ballerinas always wear their hair in a ballet bun.
Angelina wears a pink bow in hers.

Fairytale Dance Productions

As a member of the Angelina Ballerina Academy Level 2 at Susanne Hanger Dance you
will have the opportunity to perform on stage at our annual Fairytale Dance Production
held at Baycourt Theatre during the April school holidays.

Each year our teachers, students and parents unite to bring a long loved fairytale to life
with the use of wonderful costumes, props, lighting and music. It’s so amazing to dance
on a real stage! You’ll wear a dance costume, and some make-up so the audience can
see your expressions.

You’ll need to practise your routine until it’s perfect.
