House of Dance is a dance and performing arts studio based in Hobart, Tasmania. Established in 1999 by Michelle Williams (née Howell), the House of Dance has thrived for more than 20 years in praise of the local Tasmanian community, nationally and beyond.
The House of Dance Baby Ballet Program provides a fun, engaging and exciting way to introduce ballet and movement to young girls and boys, aged 18 months to 5 years of age.
House of Dance believes in the importance of guiding, caring and encouraging young children to pursue their dreams of dance. Our program strives to inspire our young ones’ sense of creativity, teamwork, self-confidence, communication and musicality, as well as developing an appreciation for the arts through movement, music, imaginative play and story time.
Our program has a strong focus on the individual needs of each child as they participate in, and move through, our classes. Our classes are crafted to allow for children to be both creatively challenged, whilst also being gently nurtured through the basics of ballet and movement. Within this program we encourage freedom of expression as we believe that each child should be able to experiment with movement without fear of failure.
Alongside our Baby Ballet Tasmania, House of Dance has developed Hobart’s most popular toddler dance program with over 200 girls and boys attending our classes each week, and we would love to share it with you!
My job is to provide the foundation of dance training that is so important and to give young people access to more. Performance, training, experience, confidence, opportunity. The exciting thing for me is working on new ways to do this; constantly reinvigorating to excite and inspire the students and families of HOD.
