RAPA Little Feet Dance

with Mary Salem (For ages 5-7)

Imaginative play through dance and improvisational movement is possibly the most important aspect of allowing a young child to believe in their ability to move, and have fun dancing, especially in the foundation years.

RAPA’s contemporary dance program encourages creative dance skills that are non-comparative. In other words the student is able to develop dance skills that express the students very own unique physicality, as against the more competitive dance disciplines where students are taught repetitive steps leading into grading and examinations, or the jazzy style 'chorus girl' unified dance practices.

Mary Salem is a founder and vice president of RAPA, she is a highly specialised and experienced teacher who is passionate about bringing formative, caring and creative foundation dance principles to children.

She is a contemporary performance artist and dancer of international repute; she has toured with award winning works such as The Descent to four continents and over 23 seasons;  her list of credits include central roles in the award winning "Tearoom". (2 Green Room awards).

RAPA is a NOT FOR PROFIT academy for the creative enrichment of young people from ages 5 to 18.

Eco-printing for Self-Reflection:
Create Your Own Wisdom Cards


This is a chance to slow down to a pace of living that invites an attending to the smaller details of our human and more than human realities. In eco-printing we attend to sensory experiences gifted by the natural world and in doing so we begin to glimpse our interior and exterior ecosystems and their inhabitants.

These workshops can be attended as one day experiences or attended as a series of four to develop a record of the richness of a year’s reflection and inquiry. Spanning the year, the series offers the opportunity for an immersion into unfolding of the themes, curiosities and wisdom that are present in our lives. This is a beautiful way to enact a self –care practice and develop a useful body of reflective art.

In each one-day workshop, we will engage with reflective arts processes as we experiment with eco-printing on cotton-rag paper and craft our own wisdom decks.

We will eco-print onto multiple strips of paper, experimenting with leaves, metal, heat and various dye pots.  Along the way we will spend some time in small groups, condensing our questions, curiosity and personal and collective wisdom onto cards to take home.  We’ll unbundle our paper together, engage in movement and somatic exercises as a way of listening to what our body has to say (all optional of course), and have a ‘lucky dip’ at the end.

Creative Movement and Drama Classes


PLAY UP: Grades Prep – 2 or Ages 5 – 7/8 years
The emphasis for this age group is on creative play and improvisation. Classes are designed to stimulate the imagination of young children, through participation in various drama, music and movement activities.

ACT UP: Grade 3 – 4 or Ages 8 – 9/10 years
These classes are designed to encourage children to become confident in presenting their own ideas and to work together in a group. This is achieved through movement, poetry, songs, scripts and theatre games; providing safe, supported performance opportunities.

ADVANCED TROUPE: By invitation only
This class is for students showing the commitment to work within certain guidelines enabling them to extend their drama experience and skills.  It will be a class requiring focus and dedication and within these guidelines each student should have a fully rounded drama experience, still full of creativity and enjoyment but supported by focused behaviour and extended by more advanced scripts, monologues & movement.

Classes are facilitated by Dee Whittington who has many years’ experience with children and youth of all ages in the areas of creative movement, drama and music, with fabulous outcomes for the participants.

Who lives there?
Animal Homes Workshop

Who lives there? is a character design workshop with Burrinja Studio Artist Andrea Innocent

First we will look at endangered Australian animals and create some characters. These will be researched and then drawn and cut out. Then using found materials you will construct a small home for your character, decorate it using paint, collage and coloured pencils. We will then place your character inside and fit it out to suit. Does your animal need a fridge? A sofa or a tv? Your little friend can then go home with you and hang as a 'mobile' home in your room!
