Dancing for kids

Think dance is all about giving your kids a chance to release some energy and run around the room in a tutu? Well, we won’t deny that’s a part of it, but dance also has a host of other benefits for a child’s physical, mental and social development. Here are six reasons why dance is so good for kids. [...]

10 years ago Tiny Toes Ballet opened it’s doors and has championed how 2-7 year old ballet has been taught in Sydney. We run magical ballet classes 6 days a week in The Hills, North Shore and Inner West Suburbs of Sydney, with a a central office located at Baulkham Hills.

At Tiny Toes Ballet, there is no pressure, no big concert, no inappropriate music or moves, no uniform, no hairstyles or makeup to worry about. We want to cherish this moment in time of each of our dancers lives.
Our dance school has the most inspiring, professional and friendly dance teachers and staff!

The teachers are genius at holding the attention of young kids.

When is world ballet day

When is world ballet day?

When is world ballet day? Well the official date in 2019 was 23rd October. It came about in 2014 when the four top ballet companies around the world decided to live stream their classes and performances. Every year the actual date has moved! There is no set ‘World Ballet Day.’ When it got to World Ballet Day this year and [...]

Award Winning Business

Award winning small business

When I first started applying for awards I felt like I was asking for approval or ‘had tickets on myself.’ I didn’t feel completely comfortable with the idea.
Then I started thinking about our Tiny Toes Terrific Team of Teachers and our Customer Happiness Managers and what we do 6 days a week for 9 years now and thought – “Gee, they are absolute rock stars, literally angels from heaven working as an incredibly inspirational team. They have helped make Tiny Toes Ballet be THE place to send children to learn in a professional yet relaxed environment. Where children learn through joy.
We have always delivered enchanting ballet classes with adorable tutus and warm nurturing teachers. We have happy ballerinas and raving parents. We sparkle on social media and in our advertising.
Our concerts are shouted from the rooftops as being unique, fabulous, wonderful, memory making, endearing – with divine affordable tutus. (Huge thanks to Michelle at Perform Dance Costumes.)
All this needs to be rewarded and recognised!

It was pointed out to me by speaker Stacey Morgan (Principal and owner of Port Macquarie Dancers) when I attended a Dance Teacher Network seminar that as owners of small businesses we often performance review our staff but not ourselves and our businesses.

I didn’t know this before I started applying for awards that the questions are really in-depth. The average application can take up to 36 hours to complete. Most of the questions require deep introspection and business analysis.

Day to day as I work in each area, I can ask myself each question.
“How do I display leadership in Tiny Toes Ballet?”
“How does Tiny Toes Ballet contribute to the community?”
“What is our 5-year plan for Tiny Toes Ballet?”

All these questions and more help us to set goals, upskill, learn and implement ideas to make Tiny Toes Ballet be THE place for 2-7-year-old kids learn to ballet and dance!

And sooooo….

This week I entered Tiny Toes Ballet into The Hills Small Business Expo Awards which are to be announced at The Hills Business Small Business Expo on Thursday, November 7th. Proudly presented by Caroline Bagga from Hills District Business Mums.

I am thrilled to announce that we have entered the following categories:
Fastest Growth Award: This award recognises a business that has grown at an exceptional rate (must have been in business for more than 2 years).

Community Contribution Award: This award recognises a person, charity or not-for-profit organisation that is making a significant impact in their community.

Mumpreneur Of The Year Award: This award recognises a woman with exceptional entrepreneurial spirit, who is juggling both roles; Mum and Entrepreneur.

Small Business Of The Year: This award recognises a small business that has achieved outstanding results in all aspects of business, including marketing, profitability, impact and customer service

 

Whether we win or not, the process has inspired and motivated me. It has reminded me that my team and the 1000+ ballerinas and danseurs and parents that we meet each week have chosen well. Tiny Toes Ballet, in my opinion, is an award-winning ballet school.

Here are some of the awards we have won over the past few years:

 

Here at Tiny Toes Ballet we are doing something bigger than ourselves inspiring the future generation of dancers!

Please join me in crossing your fingers, toes, legs and in ballet we say “entrechats” and chookas. I will be sure to let you know how we go!

Warmly,

Rebecca Kidner
