Recreational Programme

Our Recreational programme is the perfect class for students wanting to enjoy their dance classes, train hard, perform regularly but without the pressure of formal examinations. We offer separate boys and girls recreational classes. The children in this programme have the opportunity to sit an assessment once a year where they will perform the warmups, exercises and routines from a smaller syllabus. Children will receive a report sheet with positive feedback and some helpful comments about what they could look to work on next. They will also receive a score out of 100 so they can look to improve it the following year if they wish to.


This is an approximate age guide for each level. We work with children case by case in this programme though.

Step One Girls : 7 – 8 year olds / Step One Boys : 7 – 9 year olds

Step Two Girls : 8 – 9 year olds / Step Two Boys : 10 – 12 year olds

Step Three Girls : 10 – 12 year olds

Step Four Girls : 12 – 14 year olds


Children in this programme wear a black Silhouette T-shirt and black bike shorts. The T-shirt can be purchased from our website and bike shorts from any shop such as Kmart or The Warehouse. Bare feet are fine for this programme however children are welcome to wear dance footwear if they choose to and this can be purchased from PW Dancewear. Just mention your child dances at Silhouette and they will help sort the appropriate footwear.


Children in these classes have three performance opportunities per year.

April 11th – Autumn Presentation (Silhouette Studios Theatre)

September 26th – Spring Presentation (Silhouette Studios Theatre)

December 10th – 12th – End Of Year Showcase (Charles Luney Auditorium)


Term Fees are invoiced three weeks prior to the start of each term and are expected to be fully paid by the first week of classes. No refunds after the first lesson.
