Each child deserves the right to feel and be safe. The welfare of all children that come into our care, are, and always will be, our first priority in our dance school. We have zero tolerance towards child abuse or bullying/harassment, and we aim to create a child safe and child friendly environment where children feel safe in conjunction with having fun. All of this happens whilst building life skills as well! We are committed to our Child Safe Standards Policies and Code of Ethics.
Here at Sharon Saunders Dancers (SSD) we pride ourselves on a non-competition school environment, with over 40 years of technical teaching experience. We are located close to the heart of Bendigo and provide a nurturing, safe and friendly environment for all who come and join our SSD family. Our children’s dance classes are planned utilising The Australian Teachers of Dancing syllabus. This syllabus is internationally recognised, and individualised, to ensure children receive age appropriate training that offers a progressive, safe and rewarding technical progression. We are to have nurtured and supported students who have been with us from preschool to adulthood, and some now even teachers themselves!
SSD offers the perfect combination, a professional, reputable ballet school with some of the best teachers, and simultaneously a gentle and nurturing environment tailoring to the individual needs of each student and allowing them to thrive. - Rebecca (SSD Parent 2019)
