    Invaluable Lessons In True Artstistry, Change and Development

    06-05-2017 by Michelle

    There are moments that in life that change the paths we take. For us, one of those moments was when we met Dennis Sykes. Dennis Sykes has taught my daughter an aspect of dance that is often overlooked, where it is not about the sparkling costumes you wear in eisteddfods or how many trophies you have on your shelf but rather its about self worth, passion, work ethic that lead to true artistry to capture the audience that is seated before you. After only 12 months of working with Dennis my daughter is a completely different dancer and performer. I believe that their training has catapulted my daughter to a whole new level and the difference is remarkable. Now when I watch my daughter dance, it brings tears to my eyes. Dennis Sykes has given my daughter invaluable lessons in drama which I believe is an important accompaniment to any dancer's career. Dennis Sykes is the most energetic and inspirational young man that I have ever met. He has an absolute passion and commitment to his craft.

    My name is Anthony and I'm a 29 year old arts graduate, about to commence my final year of law at the University of Western Sydney. I have been employed as a Court Clerk with the NSW Department of Justice for Almost 4 years now. Dennis Sykes and the Actors Co. and Acting Studio has been my performance coach and also law Tutor since I commenced my law degree, and during this time I have seen my marks increase from a 4.03 to a 4.87 GPA, with my final year of law gearing up to be eligible for entry into an honours thesis. Dennis has taught me how to really get back into the basics of law and build on those fundamentals as a launch pad into continual development, as a law student, a professional and more. The confidence I have gained and knowledge I have assimilated and sustained over the years of working with Dennis has seen me grow within the NSW Department of Justice, but also being offered seasonal employment as a Manager with the NSW Electoral Commission, and appointment as panel member for the University of Western Sydney's Scholarship Selection Panel, representing both current students and Alumni. In short my success has been largely due in part to Dennis' success in which he paved and strategic guidance implemented. I highly recommend Dennis Sykes to anyone seeking a law tutor, life/careers coach, speech/presentation guide and performing arts coach who works with you holistically, as a mentor and close friend.

    Dennis Sykes' teachings bring out so much layered texture which caters equal development for every student. I have observed his classes and was in awe of the standard and mode of delivery of his students which ranged from classical to contemporary texts. At one stage, I was tempted to join in but was apprehensive about being outperformed. There is always a real buzz and an organic atmosphere in his classes. His students will be the future of the entertainment industry if they so choose. –Lincoln Muchirahondo

    Fantastic for kids

    09-02-2016 by Jay

    Our little boy attended for just short of 2 years. He started at 3 years old and was a handful. The team at Ready Steady Go Kids Wollongong were fantastic with him and very patient. Without the different sports which are included we would never have discovered that hockey would be his favourite. He was excited to go every week and he burned off energy. I would highly recommend Ready Steady Go Kids Wollongong and Shellharbour to any parent.

    Not in best interest of child

    28-04-2014 by Naiomi

    I enrolled my 6month old daughter in the class that was advised by gymbaroo, paid the terms fees upfront, where she was expected to lay on the ground with 6 week old babies for tummy time. When I requested for her to be moved up to the next class (where I, her mother, thought she would more benefit from watching children 12months+ playing) my request was rejected. On requesting a refund on my fees, again I was rejected and told that my daughter (who was crawling and walking along furniture) would benefit from participating in tummy time with tiny babies,and therefore would not be getting any money back. Waste of time and money, they're obviously more interested in making money than helping babies develop

    Answer from Gymbaroo Illawarra on 20-05-2015:
    Thank you for your feedback, we always welcome parents contacting us directly with their concerns and we have always been able to allay them, either by moving a child into another class if appropriate, or assisting parents in involving their child in age-appropriate activities during class. Baby classes are specifically designed for babies who are not yet walking. It is not considered neurologically appropriate to include crawling babies in a “walking” class (the next age group up) as we do not wish to encourage babies to be hurried through the essential developmental stages of crawling and creeping. Our program is not about “watching” but about active movement as this is how the brain is stimulated and developed. That is why we suggested staying in a class where the baby exercises, dance, movement and equipment activities are all specially designed for the active play of non-walking babies. Tummy time exercises and activities are really very helpful for all babies developing visual skills, coordination, motor patterns, and body awareness, even if a baby is crawling and cruising. There are also lots of activities in our baby class that enable the mobile baby to get lots of active movement – dance, ladders to creep over/under/through, swings, slides, rollers, trampolines – the list goes on! If you wish to return to class we are more than willing to help you understand more about the activities that you can do with your baby in the age appropriate class.
