Tutu Studios

Tutu Studios is where little ballerinas come to shine! They offer a range of creative classes for 18 months to 11 year olds with multiple locations in the Eastern Suburbs, Inner West, and South Sydney. Each class, your ballerina will be captivated by an enchanting story. She will swim like a mermaid, shoot like a rocket or fly with Peter Pan. We just love their Tutu Toddlers and Mum (or dad, grandma, grandpa or carer!) classes for 18 months – 3 year olds where adults have just as much fun as the little ones. Share in your little dancer’s first ballet steps. The pre-school ballet classes for 3-5 year olds are a truly joyful, playful and beautiful dance experience where lessons come to life through magical fairytale themes, delightful props and beautiful music.
