SYDNEY DANCE RHYTHMS ('SDR') offers a range of dance lessons for children including Creative, Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Salsa, Latin and Ballroom dancing. At SDR your child will have the opportunity to perform and display the skills and routines they have learnt at the end of each term. Throughout the year SDR holds performances at one of many events including local Food Festivals, Carnival of Cultures, Sydney Family Shows and other festivities, and your child may be chosen to show his or her newly learnt dance talent.

SDR also offers young children Creative Dance classes to encourage their imagination and creativity through music and movement. Our highly competent instructors will help guide and support your child into exploring movement, creativity and musicality whilst developing their coordination, balance, muscle memory, flexibility, strength and spatial awareness.

Through creative movement and dancing, children are given the opportunity to express themselves, physically and emotionally, in a very enjoyable and beneficial activity.

Based on your child's natural movements and on their need to move and be active, the creative nature of this genre will allow your child to design their own dances, move spontaneously, express their own ideas and provides an outlet for their energies.

Children develop listening skills and appreciation of different kinds of music and gain new physical abilities, while building self-esteem and confidence.

As opposed to other forms of dance, creative dance does not impose the restrictions of a technique or expectations of advancement, competition or standards of performance on your child. This freedom allows for self-expression without fear of failure or disapproval. Our classes are running in a child friendly environment.

The Creative Dance Classes run at our Summer Hill location on Saturdays from 8.45am - 9.30am (2 - 4 year old children).

Creative Dance Classes for toddlers


Our Kids Creative classes are fun and affordable; and we recommend that you bring the following for each class:

  • Wear comfortable shoes
  • Wear comfortable and practical clothes for sporting and fitness activities (i.e. not too baggy so children may trip on it OR too tight that it may restrict movement)
  • Bring a small towel
  • Bring a bottle of water or other liquids

Parents may attend each class and will be provided with seats at the rear of the class.

Parents are also encouraged to join their little ones in the Creative Dance class. Some children may be shy, especially in the beginning, and parents are free to join in to help the little ones overcome any fears and open up to new experiences.

Principal at St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School Summer Hill

"I highly recommend Cristina and Sydney Dance Rhythms to anyone interested in wanting their children to participate and excel in dance. My daughter Elena who is 6 was fortunate to have a full term of dance as part of her school curriculum and absolutely loved it and flourished under the instruction of "Miss Cristina". She now attends a weekly jazz dance class and is thoroughly enjoying learning new routines and participating in a fun team environment. My daughter has been to other dance schools in the last 3 years but Sydney Dance Rhythms is definitely the one she has most enjoyed and looks forward to attending every week!"

“I took my very first dance lessons with Cristina and it was amazing! I learned how to Salsa 6 months ago and I still remember the steps she taught me. I met great people while taking the course and at the end the whole class we went out to for an authentic Salsa night in Sydney. We all got to put our moves to the test, have fun and see how much more we can improve by watching everyone else at the club. Overall, it was a great and affordable opportunity in a relaxed, comfortable environment that everyone should take advantage of sooner than later!”

“My daughter, Lizzie, has enjoyed participating in the Creative Dance Classes running on Saturday mornings. She loves pretending to be animals, doing silly falls, learning a little routine, pretending to sleep and wake like a flower. As a parent, I enjoy seeing the creative play, freeze, circuit, pompoms, the mix of boys and girls and parent involvement.”


Lizzie’s mum (Creative Dance Class)

“My daughter loves the Hip Hop classes. The teacher is wonderful, very friendly and easy going and my child loves her style of teaching.”

“Our wedding was very memorable and I'm proud to say the bridal dance was the highlight of the night.  We had such great fun with you during the dance lessons, and you gave us so much confidence for our dance. You pushed us hard to do a dance that we didn't even think we had the capabilities to do.”


Wedding Dance Lessons

“It was fantastic having Sydney Dance Rhythms dancers demonstrate and then dance with the members of our senior’s club last week. Our members were very excited to get a chance to dance as most of them have not danced in a long while. It stirred up some lovely memories for them and started conversations about the past. Your friendliness and warmth drew our members into participating and it was a surprise to see some of our frailer seniors take to the floor. The music was well balanced and the variety was enjoyed by all. Our members have agreed that it would be wonderful to have you back again and we look forward to another session of dance and enjoyment.”
