Development Programme

Our Development programme is an excellent choice for students who would like to be pushed further in their dance training. The children in this programme have options from formal examinations to open classes. The exams are held annually and are an asset for any dancer if they decide to look for work within the industry. Aside from exams and classes, children in this programme get to do performances, workshops, social events and are able to put their name down for a solo/duo/trio/squad for our In-House comp teams. This is the stepping stone to progress into the regional competition scene.


Children in this programme wear a combination of uniforms…

Commercial Classes – a black Silhouette Tshirt and black bike shorts. The Tshirt can be purchased from our website at time of fee payments and bike shorts from any shop such as Kmart, The Warehouse or PW Dancewear. Girls require tan jazz shoes and boys require black combo boots (both can be purchased from PW) – just say you dance with Silhouette

Ballet Classes – a full set uniform is required for all ballet examination classes. This information will be out soon for 2021.

Open Classes – For open classes, students have the opportunity to wear mufti.


Children in these classes have two performances per year.

July 3rd – Winter Presentation

December 10th, 11th, 12th – End of Year Showcase


All prices are excluding GST


If your child is entering into Senior ballet exam levels (inter-foundation and above) the BBO invites you to become a member which gives you discounted exam and course fees. This is an optional choice for parents and needs to be organized directly with BBO, not through Silhouette.
