All children love to dance. Whatever place we live in and culture we belong to, kids naturally love to move their bodies in response to the music they're surrounded with. Here in Perth we're fortunate to have loads of children's dance classes to choose from, ranging from traditional options like ballet and Irish dance to more contemporary styles such as rap and cheer-leading.

In your opinion, what are Perth's best dance classes for children? Why are they good and are they expensive? Most importantly, do your children enjoy the style of lessons they provide?
Carolyn, this is such a difficult question unless you happen to have children of the age that they do dancing.
I do not, however, I would search the internet for one closest to me, and then look for reviews of that name to see what people are saying. admittedly you cannot place too much trust and I always think they are genuine if there are also negative comments as well as positive.
Helen Gowers Ballet School has ballet classes for children of all ages, even very young preschoolers. They're held at several locations around the city. Check out their website to learn more: http://hgballet.com.au/blog/
