We're shaking up the world of preschool dance and getting the littlest movers & shakers in the inner west ready to blast off!

Due to popular demand, we're bringing our beloved Pocket Rocket preschool dance classes to weekday mornings in term 4. To celebrate the launch, we're holding free Pocket Rocket 'Power-Hour' sessions for your little groover! 

Join the Pocket Rocket Revolution

Who said preschool dance had to be all fairies and princesses? At Dance Domain, we've packed away the stale and stereotypical tea party. Our gender-neutral Pocket Rocket preschool dance classes are bold and bright and will really boost your child's imagination into hyper-drive.

Are you bored of hearing your child told they are 'beautiful', 'cute', or a 'good boy' or 'good girl'? Our Pocket Rockets are clever, brave, and strong.

If you think you've got a future Pocket Rocket crew member at home, then it's time to get ready to blast off! We're celebrating the launch of our new Pocket Rocket classes for 3-5yr olds with some super-fun and free sessions in September at our St Peters studio.

Introducing...

The Pocket Rocket Power-Hour!

Our newest Pocket Rocket recruits will get to experience the energy and excitement of a Pocket Rocket class, and then get to make new friends during a supervised 'stay & play' session afterwards. They'll tackle fun obstacle courses, take a seat at our colouring table, build with blocks and more.

You'll be able to make connections with other local parents, and, even better, with a cafe on site, you can even duck out for a coffee and some child-free time! Woo!

PLUS, each new Pocket Rocket recruit will get a little take-home prize pack, and you'll get a free coffee or tea from our on site providers of all things delicious and caffeinated, The Industrial Lunchbox.

Our Launchpad ​ Power-Hour sessions from 9:30am-10:30am are perfect for 3-4yr olds.

Our Countdown Power-Hour sessions from 10:30-11:30am are perfect for 4-5yr olds.

Places are limited in each of our Power-Hour sessions, so you'll need to reserve a spot for your Pocket Rocket to-be.

Our Pocket Rocket Power-Hour sessions include

  • 30-minute introductory Pocket Rocket lesson
  • 30-minute supervised 'stay & play' session
  • Take home prize pack for all new Pocket Rocket recruits
  • Coffee for parents/caregivers, courtesy of The Industrial Lunchbox


Powerful, playful preschool dance

Our Pocket Rocket preschool dance classes will enrich your child with powerful and playful pedagogy that will help them develop crucial physical, cognitive, social, and emotional skills.

With 3 levels that cater to the specific developmental needs of 3-6 year olds, there's a class that's perfect for your little mover and groover!

Pocket Rockets Preschool Dance Infographic

Your little one will build their physical coordination and strength as they jump, hop, skip, run and tumble through an action-packed lesson. They'll learn valuable sharing and turn-taking skills, and they'll also discover what it feels like to encourage others and be encouraged in return. Your little Pocket Rocket will also learn about counting, colours, shapes, and size across a huge range of fun dance-based activities, giving them a head start in preparing for schooling.

Our Pocket Rocket preschool dance program is developed by a doctoral researcher in dance education and knowledge-building. We've also teamed up with Leap 'N Learn, an international dance curriculum designed by master teacher Beverly Spell and expert child psychologist Dr. Annie Spell.

We know that children learn best through 'real-world' or context-dependent situations, so we use a huge range of props and resources to stimulate, motivate, and excite... there's so much more out there than just pink fairy wands and butterfly wings.

We've got plush turtles, glitter batons, big lotus flowers, sparkly pom poms, ribbon rings, feathers of all sizes and colours, hula hoops, bean bags, and more!

Pocket Rocket preschool dance props

With an ever-changing range of props and resources, our Pocket Rockets get a full sensory experience in each and every class. Using props also teaches our youngest dancers wonderful manners and life-skills, like packing away items when we're done with them, colour matching, and learning to say 'please' and 'thank you'.

The work you do with your students is inspirational on all levels. Yes, the dancing, but it’s so much more than that. You care about them like family, and you shower them with your wonderful values which is rare and something to be treasured.

Now, getting rid of princesses and tea parties isn't about removing the magic and wonder from our classes altogether.

It's about variety.

It's about introducing your little Pocket Rocket to the widest range of experiences as they begin to develop their unique sense of self.

One day we might be making wishes with glitter batons or wands (like the time a little Pocket Rocket wishing her dad would turn into a snowman... definitely the result of a Frozen binge!), next up we might be pirates off to discover some treasure, or maybe we might be cheeky little fairies off painting the town rainbow colours when no-one is watching, and other days we might be little eggs in shells that splat into scrambled eggs!

No matter what we're doing, our students are definitely co-creators, and we wouldn't have it any other way. That egg exercise I mentioned? Well, it didn't start out with scrambled eggs in it, but one of our Pocket Rockets took a little tumble and "ta-da!" ... the scrambled egg splat was born!

Dance Domain's Pocket Rockets are all about building confidence, coordination, and creativity in the youngest members of our community.

Gender-neutral, fast-paced classes that are full of spark - perfect for Inner West kids!

Your invitation to our free Power-Hour sessions!

We're opening the doors at Mission Control to a new intake of Pocket Rocket recruits and to celebrate the launch, we're holding free Power-Hour sessions  so you and your little Pocket Rocket to-be can come and see what the hype is all about!

Come and experience a 30-minute Pocket Rocket class, and then join us afterwards for a supervised 'stay & play' session where your little one will explore obstacle courses, colour in, play with building blocks, and make new friends. It's a great chance for your preschooler to get comfortable in a new environment, and it's also a great chance for you to meet other local parents too. 

We've teamed up with our on-site cafe, The Industrial Lunchbox, and parents/caregivers for our new Pocket Rocket recruits will be treated to a complimentary coffee or tea. Sit back and enjoy your coffee while you watch your little one dance and play, or, duck out to the cafe and have your coffee and some kid-free peace and quiet!
