tippy toes dance programs




EDI began with Tippy Toes, our preschool dance program, in 2014.​ Founder, Lauren Spenceley, established Tippy Toes when her own daughter was ready to dance and she was dissatisfied with dance classes she found for her two-year-old in Perth. Demand for Tippy Toes preschool dance classes grew beyond all expectations and as the school progressed the classes became more than a pre-school activity for little dancers.

Tippy Toes' syllabus is an accumulation of a passion for dance, love of children, experience in teaching and knowledge of child development. The syllabus has been carefully developed and is passionately presented to ensure that all the children enjoy, develop and embrace the classes! All classes are age-appropriate developmentally, socially and emotionally. Children who attend will benefit from exposure to classical music and develop their gross motor skills, confidence, imagination and social skills in a fun and nurturing environment.

What is so different about Tippy Toes?

"My idea was simple and only what I had hoped to find for my own daughter elsewhere... there would be no screaming at the door because parents are welcome in class, to allow independence and confidence to grow at a rate best suited to the child, no make-up, no competitions, age-appropriate moves and music, no overwhelming concert and developmentally beneficial classes! Basically all the benefits Dance is known for without any of the negative perceptions and ‘Dance Mom’ culture. I love that we are now also able to cater for children after the preschool years, and give them a dance-home for life!"

-Lauren Spenceley



Our Tippy Toes program offers many different genres to suit all different little personalities and interests! What all our classes have in common is that they are progression based and developmentally sound, offering your child a beneficial activity which enhances their social, emotional and physical development at rate best suited to them.

Acro is the perfect opportunity for your active, adventurous little preschooler to roll, tumble, crawl, bounce and dance! Your child will build their strength, flexibility, coordination, participating in our specialist acro program from Acrobatic Arts.

We recommend registering your child through our parent portal for a clearer view of which classes/levels are best for them to start in! You can also book trial classes and add your child to the waitlist for full classes in the portal too! Don't forget children starting full-time school who are happy to enter class independently are welcome in our Upper School Program.


Don't worry about getting the level right as you enrol, our Tippy Toes program is progressive, not age-based so our teachers will ensure your child is moved to the appropriate level in the first few sessions!
