School Dance Programs – Melbourne Our Dance Programs follow the PDPHPE Syllabus and we provide the teachers with a Teachers Marking Guide.
We provide Dance Programs for Primary Schools, Preschools/Child Care Centres and Vacation Care Centres.
Dance till you Drop is the sister company of Bop till you Drop. We have experienced staff and structured programs which allow students to advance their rhythm, coordination, fine loco-motor skills and confidence while having an enjoyable dance education. All while adhering to the PDHPE Syllabus.
At Dance till you Drop we offer 2 options, both which will cover the PDHPE syllabus of dance.
Cultural & Dance Experience – 10 weeks
This is a structured program where the children participate in the set list below, allowing them to engage in learning the basics of dance techniques and also participating in an educational cultural dance experience.
4 weeks of Jazz (to learn the fundamental elements of dance)
1 week of Hip Hop
1 week of Bollywood
1 week of Salsa/Latin
1 week of Belly Dancing
1 week of African
1 week of Revision of all the above
We have found that these subjects amazingly broaden the students’ dance knowledge. Many students otherwise would not get a chance to experience such a broad range of dance styles.
Design your own
This is an option where the school can let us know what their goals are and we prepare the songs, and if necessary the story-lines, and choreography to suit.
Examples of ‘Design your Own’ would include:
Full school dance routine – Taught over 3 lessons (first two in groups and the third with the school as a whole)
School anniversary – era’s of dance styles through the grades (year 3 = 60’s, year 4 = 70’s and so on)
Kindergarten dance program – teaching dance routines to kindy with some musical activities at the end of the classes.
Year 3-6 hip hop routines.
Basically anything dance, including rock eisteddfods and dance troupes.
All our staff are Working with Children Checked, experienced dancers, dance teachers, and have worked with kids for many years. We believe that good dancers don’t always make good teachers. So our staff are carefully selected and well informed of our high expectations.
Costs vary, so it is best to contact us with details such as goals, number of students and time frame. We recommend two classes combined for a 45 minutes session for the best cost effective option.
Why book with us?
We follow the PDHPE syllabus.
We set out all the outcomes and indicators for the strand of dance for each stage in an easy to read ‘Teachers Marking Guide’.
We focus on locomotor and non-locomotor essential skills.
Through all our dance styles, students learn about composition through structure, transition and sequence, as well as tempo, coordination and flexibility.
You can chose one of our programs or we can design a program specific for your school e.g. School performances, school anniversary, lunch time dance groups, eisteddfods, Wakirri, and Junior Rock Eisteddfod.
Our instructors are experienced in working with children, knowing how to structure the classes and how to get the best out of ALL the children.
Our instructors are registered with the Working With Children Check.
Our dance styles are appreciated and enjoyed by the students, which ensures they are learning and building confidence.

We just hired Bop till you Drop to do a virtual birthday party for my 8 year old and I was soooo impressed. They did it through zoom, but they must have used professional equipment as the sound and image was amazing. Cathy the host was so friendly, energetic and full of life. My daughter and her friends loved it and didn’t want it to end. It was so nice seeing all the girls and boys on screen dancing and laughing. Cathy made my daughter feel so special. At first she was disappointed that she couldn’t have all her friends over, but by the end she was thanking me and even asked if we could do the same party next year. Thank you Bop till you Drop, you guys are a life saver!!!
Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for Emily’s Bop Till You Drop 5th Bday Disco party on the weekend. Lexi was amazing!! She kept the kids engaged and entertained throughout the whole party, and the disco was an absolute hit with the kids (and parents!). Lexi transformed our lounge room with her disco lights and everyone had a ball singing on the microphones, playing party games and showing off their best dance moves. The birthday girl was so happy her favourite songs were played and she felt the centre of attention. Also wonderful that even with her recently broken arm, Emily was able to join in all the games, singing, dancing and activities – in fact I think she completely forgot she had a broken arm! Have already heard from a number of parents that their kids would now like a disco party too. And of course Emily loved the party so much she wants to do the same thing next year! Thanks again.

Our daughter and her friends had the most wonderful time at her 5th Birthday party with the help of Bop till you Drop. Our gorgeous host kept all the kids engaged and partying on. We had so many compliments from friends on how good the entertainment was and how much fun they were all having.

We have just had the best school disco in years! All the kids enjoyed themselves and the energy and excitement from both Stacey and our students was amazing. All students from Kindy to Year 6 had a wonderful night, being able to get up on stage to dance and sing to their favourite song was great to see, Stacey did an amazing job! Thank you! We can’t wait to have BTYD back!
