1. Action Kids
This is the class that has to be seen to be believed! Action Kids is a high-energy, unstructured 1-1.5 hour play session set to music for 9 month to 4 year olds in Bondi Junction and Alexandria. This is high action fun at its best- song, dance and play is at the forefront as highly qualified instructors lead the way in the middle with singing, dancing, jumping, twirling, catching bubbles and scattering sacks of toys. Whether parents want to join in or not, or kids are happy to jump right in or settle in from the sidelines, this is the place for you. Read about our fantastic experience at Action Kids here.
2. Jump Squad
Got a little daredevil monkey who loves to jump off the furniture? Get them into the art of Parkour with Jump Squad. Kids of all levels can join in and learn Parkour from the talented coaches, located in outdoor locations in Manly and Pymont. The sport involves running, vaulting and jumping around an urban course at speed. Your kids will flip out when you tell them!

With studios in Double Bay and Bondi Beach, kids will engage in role playing, character immersion, creative writing and much more in the name of learning the technical and creative art of storytelling in a fun and interactive way.
