Classical Ballet

Dance Creations, offers a series of ballet classes designed to inspire your child’s unique creative expression, supporting self-confidence and growth through dance, music, mime & song (for the younger children aged 2.5yrs – 5yrs), who then go on to graduate to the more formal learning about the technique and art of classical ballet (for children aged 6 to 19years).

  • Fairy Tale Ballet (for children aged 5 to 7yo) – where your child will learn basic ballet steps, infused with fairy tale wonder
  • Ballet Essence (for children aged 7 to 11yo) – is a holistic & creative program, laying foundations for formal ballet training

Contemporary Dance

Dance Creations also offers Contemporary dance classes, where your child will enjoy exploring the natural movement patterns of the body and its relation to breath, musicality and space.

Their coordination will be challenged whilst they’ll also be creating fun phrases or tasks that will incorporate changes of direction, floor patterns or moving their arms and legs in different ways, at the same time.

The Laban movement principles, various release-based principles, creative dance techniques as well as Limón dance principles are often present within these classes.

It was a wonderful concert today. I am quite overwhelmed, it was so professional and with so much passion and encouragement. I really wish Chloe could grow up to be such a ballerina.


We wanted to congratulate you on today’s concert. We were utterly delighted with all the costumes, fun and excitement this afternoon. What a simply memorable and special first ballet concert. All your efforts will remain forever with Lily as her magnificent first stage performance. Thank you.

Thank you Miss Terrie for another wonderful end of year concert . Hard to believe it is our 4th one. It’s such a joy to see how much our little ballerinas have grown from year to year. The smile on Hope’s face was from ear to ear. Thank you for helping her be such a confident performer xo.


Terrie Wayside is one of the most amazing teacher’s I have worked with. It is incredibly rare to meet a teacher that not only believes in every students capacity to be wonderful, but also has the ability to teach excellent technique. With these two qualities combined, Terrie is a dance teacher who can truly empower children to reach their full potential, not only as a dancer but as a person. I just wish she was in Melbourne so that I could send my children to her!

Miss Terrie is a gifted and creative teacher who gave my child self confidence and a love of dance. My daughter still dances today, 12 years later.


Thank you so much for everything you do. I love seeing how the kids grow every year. Congratulations on a successful concert too. It was brilliant.


My kids love attending Miss Terrie’s ballet classes, my youngest so much so, that he now attends twice a week. Miss Terrie has such a wonderful rapport with her students. She is patient, kind and very caring! I highly recommend Dance Creations.


My two daughters have been dancing with Miss Terrie at Dance Creations for almost three (3) years. The joy it brings me to watch them is surpassed only by the joy they experience learning, imagining, pretending and dancing throughout their lessons. They have developed confidence and poise, at Miss Terrie’s nurturing hands and continue to master various physical and mental skills (such as listening). The variety and creativity weaved into the annual dance programs, ensure that we always look forward to our lessons and concerts. I hope that my son wants to dance with Miss Terrie when he’s old enough.

Sofia is in her third year of dancing with Dance Creations and absolutely loves it. The teachers are so kind, nurturing and supportive. I have watched a very shy, unsure little girl blossom into a happy, exuberant kid who can not wait for her dance class each week. She participated in her first concert last year, and the magical experience has left her very excited for the concert at the end of this year.
