Welcome to Tiny Twinkle Toes Ballet.

Anna's (Ms Anna) vision for Tiny Twinkle Toes is to provide a wonderful, safe and nurturing emvironment where all of her tiny ballerinas are given the opportunity to shine and explore their creative selves, develop confidence and discover the magical world of ballet and dance.

 

Dance has been a part of Anna's life for over 40 years when she started classical ballet at the age of 3. She grew to love ballet and dance and completed 20 years of classical RAD ballet training, culminating in dancing with The Royal New Zealand Ballet Company and touring as a soloist with The New Zealand Dance Company.

 

Anna also used the skills gained during these years to choreograph musicals for schools and theatre companies.

 

Anna has been teaching the popular KinderballetTM accredited programs to pre-schoolers for over 8 years and has a passion for working with young children. She loves to see the delight on their faces as they use their imaginations, explore their creative selves and flourish from the amazing programs designed for little ballerinas.

 

'I have a special place in my heart for children, being a mother of my 14 year old daughter who is following my love of dance. I believe dance is an important part of the development of children helping them to explore their imaginations and learning process.'

 

'I look forward to passing my passion and experiences on to all my Tiny Twinkle Toes girls and boys and I will find joy in seeing all my

Training in the Martha Graham technique, both here and in Los Angeles, Ms Laura developed an interest in physiology, undertaking some short courses to better understand physiology and how our bodies work. Taking a break from dancing for a few years, Ms Laura returned to dancing after having children and started teaching ballet and creative dance to young children.

She has an extensive performance history – including dancing in the opening ceremony of the Brisbane Goodwill Games and several musicals over the years. In addition, Laura has received Speech and Drama qualifications from Trinity College, London and has completed Progressing Ballet Technique course and a Preschool Music Course.

Ms Laura is Looking forward to meeting you and your ballerinas and being part of the Tiny Twinkle Toes Team to bring the magic of dance to your little one.

Get to know Belinda:

I first met Ms Anna when my eldest daughter, Chloe, started Mummy and Me Classes in 2015. It was instantly our favourite day of the week. Some of our fondest memories are from our Ballet classes with Ms Anna. My youngest Laura was always by Chloe's side copying the moves until she was old enough to join her own Mummy and Me class, where she much preferred to dance with Ms Anna than her own Mummy! The girls continued all the way to Twinkle Tots and to this day have a special spot for Ms Anna, the smile instantly comes onto their faces when they are in her presence.

I have helped Ms Anna bring to life three end of year Presentation Days for her Tiny Dancers and at the start of 2020 I have been assisting her in the running of her beautiful business that she has so successfully created.


It gives me great satisfaction to work with Ms Anna to bring this joy to all of her Tiny Dancers. The love and passion she has for dance is like no other and we are all so blessed to have crossed paths with her, not only in our own lives, but our children's!

I look forward to the future and all the twinkly magic we create for your children!
