HVT’s tap classes focus on the L.G.T.D.A. tap syllabus for the first semester then concert preparation for the second semester. This tap syllabus produces excellent tap technique and a thorough knowledge of all tap variations which can be incorporated into our concert routines to produce fabulous results.


HVT ballet classes follow the R.A.D. (Royal Academy of Dance) syllabus, the most recognised ballet organisation in the world. Learning a syllabus enables students to learn age appropriate exercises and develop their skill and love for Ballet.


This is a fun, popular dance style that helps to showcase a dancer’s individual style with energetic moves, up beat steps and modern music. This class improves a dancers flexibility as well as stamina and is great exercise. A ballet class must be taken in conjunction with jazz for optimum results.


Our junior combo classes are a 30 minute class that incorporates our 2 most popular styles, Hip Hop & Acro. We alternate between Acro and Hip Hop every second week. Hip Hop is a modern style class that follows current music. Acro is a class that works on progressions in flexibility, strength, balancing, limbering and tumbling. This will be a performance based class as the children can perform their Hip Hop routine in the end of year concert. We have 2 levels available, 5-7 years and 8-12 years.

Now that we move into the more advanced classes the choreography becomes more complex, the tempo is faster and the routines more challenging. This is the perfect class for those wanting a challenge and who have a strong jazz background.


While studying a classical Ballet class you can also have the opportunity to take part in our contemporary & lyrical classes. This modern style of dance utilizes the body’s natural lines and energy, allowing a greater range and fluidity of movement than conventional dance techniques.

Adult Classes


If you’re a past dancer or you are a beginner then we have a class to suit you on a Wednesday evening. Our adult tap class has been a huge hit for the past 15 years. The class is loads of fun and we even manage to have a few giggles along the way. We do a range of exercises on the barre and in the centre then we rehearse a routine to perform in the end of year concert. If you do not wish to take part in the performance then that’s no problem to just join our class for fun & fitness and of course to make new friends :-).


This class is a combination class and is great for those wanting to get fit, toned and supple. You will work on flexibility. Combine that with modern music for a contemporary flare. The style represents our current culture and is always changing due to music trends and styles. This modern style is great for all ages and ability.


Have you ever wanted to learn Ballet? Did you learn Ballet as a child and have always wanted to get back into it? It is never too late to take up a Ballet class. Perfect for your mind and body. There are so many benefits from taking a dance class so why not give it a try.

Extra Classes


Examinations are introduced at the age of five and are optional. HVT offers exams in Tap (L.G.T.D.A.) and Classical Ballet (R.A.D.). We encourage students to participate in exams annually as it gives the children a great understanding of terminology, appreciation for music & rhythm and is also confidence building. Exams are a great way to set and reach goals and it offers students the incentive to improve. The results from sitting for an exam are very rewarding.
Class requirements to attempt an annual exam –
Tap: Students sitting a tap exam are required to enrol in one tap exam group class per week. Once they reach Bronze Star and above, one class and one private lesson per week is required.
Ballet: Students sitting a Ballet exam are required to participate in two ballet exam group classes each week from Primary-Grade 1. Grade 2 will require two classes and a character/exam dance group lesson and from Grade 3, two classes and a private lesson are required. Private lessons may be shared with an exam partner to reduce costs. Leotards and character skirts are hired from the Studio for the ballet exam from Primary to Grade 5 level. From Intermediate Foundation and above you will be advised what leotard and style to purchase.


HVT’s competition troupe classes are available from 6 years of age. This is a selected group of dancers who excel and are looking for more performance opportunities. They are required to participate in a weekly tap, jazz and ballet class. By being a member of our troupe team students develop confidence, commitment and teamwork. Team members learn choreographed routines that they perform at eisteddfods, festivals and shows through out the year.
Children love to dance as part of a team and feel a great deal of self worth and happiness for their fellow troupe members when they succeed. With this solid training they can potentially become professional dancers or even gain a diploma in dance teaching which opens doors for future employment in the entertainment industry. HVT’s network of connections in the industry include the Australian Ballet School, various cruise companies, other international and national performance organisations and agents who assist dedicated performers to realise their dreams.


HVT students have been very successful for many years competing in solos at Eisteddfods, winning many awards and championships. We pride ourselves on our reputation, professionalism and our results are of a very high standard. Eisteddfods are a great way for children to gain confidence and boost their self-esteem through the achievements that can be gained. If you are interested in gaining more stage time or you have a dancer that would love to perform on stage on their own we can help. Along with a private lesson you must still participate in a class of the same genre and also a Ballet class. Once you have more than 3 solos you must have a 45 minute private lesson. Practise should also take place at home during the week too and is very important for improvement.


We can teach simple last minute moves OR something more personalized that suits you as a couple or your entire bridal party. Be it something traditional like a waltz or something up beat we can tailor it to just about anything. You can book a one off lesson or a block of lessons.
