About Lily Fong Ballet Academy

Our aim is to encourage this desire under caring and creative guidance, emphasizing the equal importance of correct technique and individual artistry.

Every class is prepared with thought and care, giving each student technical guidance, gently drawing out and nurturing artistic quality, with encouragement to grow as a complete artist, thereby enabling each to truly express his/her depth of feeling and love of dance.

Twinkle Toes – Pre-school Dance for Fun

Twinkle Toes gives our 3 to 5 year olds a happy introduction to dance in a caring and fun filled environment

  • Each child’s natural response to music is gently guided to explore and discover the love of music and movement that is in us all
  • Children are individuals.  All children are encouraged toward their potential at their own pace
  • By means of stories, games, nursery rhymes, movement and mime to music, classes are designed to encourage and foster co-ordination, musicality, rhythm, self-discipline, the ability to happily interact with others, confidence, a sense of achievement, and above all, the joy and love of dance
  • Children thus learn to express themselves through dance
  • Twinkle Toes aims to provide the best possible grounding for progress to the Grades, our next level of dance training
