About Us

Welcome to Tutu Studios

A school for little dancers to experience the magic of beautiful music and movement through fairy tales, stories, sparkles, and ribbons. Not only will your little dancer grow into a creative, confident, happy young person, you’ll be able to celebrate each special step she takes along the way.

Let your little dancer experience magic with us

At Tutu Studios that is exactly what we strive for and give our valued little dancers. With our Founder and Director, Elke Crowe, experiencing the joy of dance herself and then seeing her own children flourish through ballet, she would love the same for your child.

Elke created a ballet school that not only lets children experience the joy of play and dance; it brings out their confidence, self-expression, and imagination. They also learn valuable life skills through structured classes which draw from the best principles of the Royal Academy of Dance and Leap N’ Learn curriculums.

You’ll be there to celebrate each special dance step your tiny ballerina takes. And to witness her transform into the joyful, confident little girl you’d always imagined.

If your child is shy to begin with, she’ll soon blossom into a confident little person with us

We believe that every child should experience the delight of moving to music, and be transported and mesmerised by the beautiful stories and the adventures we go on each class.

Every child should experience the thrill and wonder of dressing up for their first special concert in a gorgeous tutu and performing for their favourite audience, you.

Every child should feel that sense of accomplishment when they learn a new skill, and learn the love and habit of moving, to feel great because they are exercising.

Every child should look back when they are older and think what a magical, cherished childhood memory their first ballet lessons were. If you believe your child should have this too, we would love for your little ballerina to join us.

Our Philosophy and Curriculum

At Tutu Studios, we believe in inspiring creativity and fostering a life-long love of movement in children through the artistry of dance.

As much as we encourage self-expression and creativity through play and imagination, we also make sure all classes are structured in a way to best develop your child’s motor skills, coordination, and confidence.

Leap N’ Learn and Royal Academy of Dance

Our class plans have been designed incorporating the best practices of the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and Leap N’ Learn. Leap N’ Learn is an early childhood dance program designed specifically for girls and boys 3-8 years by master ballet teacher Beverly Spell and expert child psychologist Dr Annie Spell.

We are the only licenced Leap N’ Learn studio in Sydney and one of two in Australia. The Leap N’ Learn program brings another element to our classes as it focuses on the cognitive and neural development of the child.

We have uniquely weaved the principles of Leap N’ Learn and RAD with stories and fairy tales to make your child’s ballet learning experience even more magical.

  • Mummy are we going to ballet today? This is the question I hear from my 2 year old daughter every morning The way the teacher interacts with the kids and the patience she has in teaching them makes my daughter so confident and so interested in going to her classes every week. I started looking forward to this class myself!
