Kinderballet Turns 10!

Kinderballet 10th Birthday

Ten years in business is a marvellous achievement, but what’s most interesting is that Kinderballet was first conceived by founders Sheryn and Peter Zarins when they were expecting their first child, and was subsequently financed by the Australian federal government’s Baby Bonus Scheme.

Preschool Ballet


The aim of Kinderballet™ is to introduce the basics of Classical Ballet through imagination and creative movement.

'Preschool Ballet' is simply ballet aimed at the preschool level. Kinderballet™ is a ballet program developed specifically for children aged between 2 and 5 years, as an introduction to Classical Ballet. The challenge with teaching this age group is to hold their attention while introducing them to basic movement principals.

At Kinderballet™, the children learn Classical ballet steps and develop basic gross motor skills through imagery and story-telling. Our Programs are strongly influenced by current pre-school education trends in teaching through play acknowledging that pre-school children are a highly imaginative age group with pretend play being an important aspect of child development.

‘When young children use their imaginations in play, they are more creative, perform better at school tasks, and develop a problem-solving approach to learning. Educating a child’s imagination is therefore an important way to prepare children for the future.’ Isenberg & Jalongo (2001)

Why Kinderballet™?

  • Balance - The right balance between fun and learning.
  • Programs - Specifically developed for preschool children by a former RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) examiner.
  • Teachers - Highly qualified and experienced teachers, trained to deliver the Kinderballet™ Program.
  • Music - Specifically developed to teach our preschool ballet program.
  • Affordability - We offer an affordable preschool ballet experience - rather than a cheap one - we don't require expensive uniforms, nor do we coerce you into overpriced end of year concerts.
