Our Mission

Creating confidence, coordination and compassion in our kids.

Our Values

Determination; Adventure; Nurture; Confidence; Energy


Being a boutique studio specialising only in preschool and early primary dancers, we offer ballet tuition that cannot be rivaled by any other provider in the area!

We're built on simple yet solid values that extend far beyond the physical realms of dance. We are passionate about creating confidence and pride in our little dancers and and equipping them with life skills that will benefit them long beyond their time with us.

Whether it's our sole focus on little dancers; small class sizes; accredited teachers; convenient locations; or nationally renowned, Kinderballet™ designed programs; our approach is very simple:

Give your little dancer the best introduction to classical ballet and you the best value for money.




We're a small but passionate team at Miss Chelsea's. Passionate about providing the best introduction to ballet for your little dancer. Our teachers must first be highly experienced ballerinas, with demonstrated experience teaching little dancers. Further to this, all teachers who deliver Kinderballet™ programs must also be assessed and approved by Kinderballet™ before taking any classes. They then participate in ongoing training sessions throughout each year and are periodically re-assessed to ensure the highest quality classes.

You can rest assured that your little dancers are in excellent hands at Miss Chelsea's.

Chris James

Business Manager

By day, Chris manages a specialist outpatient department here in Cairns. By night he tinkers away on the boring business stuff to keep Miss Chelsea's running smoothly and let Miss Chelsea focus on her little dancers. Occasionally you can find him in the role of Miss Chelsea's official photographer, and that's about as far as his artistic flair extends.
