Bodies in Motion Dance School teaches Jazz, Tap and Classical Ballet syllabus from the Southern Federation of Dance. This syllabus aims to provide an enriching learning experience through sound, up to date teaching techniques, plus an understanding of the wider artistic and social dimensions of dance.  

The Dance Prep program uses aspects from the Leap and Learn and the Australian Teachers of Dance Syllabi. This program was created to teach the fundamentals of dance to young children through play, whilst further developing coordination, musicality and fine motor skills.

Hip Hop classes are based on syllabus from the Australian Teachers of Dance. This is one of the first ever Hip Hop syllabus created and focuses on rhythm and style to create an individual hip hop dancer.

Each syllabus is challenging, stimulating and designed to build students skills and sustain their interest in their chosen style of dance. Naturally, they all endorse the National Guidelines for Dance Curriculum.
