The early years of a child’s life are the magical years of your child’s early development where they naturally feel the desire and joy of movement and self-expression. Movement, dance and music are the keys to your child being healthier and happier…both now and in the years to come.

The founder and owner of OZ TOTS & OZ KIDS IN ACTION, as well as the developer of the OZ TOTS programs, is the highly experienced and gifted Marcia Lindoorn.
Marcia's experience as a dancer and teacher spans four continents and four decades. She's been successfully running her dance schools for many years. The Dance Spot Performing Arts Centre, in Sydney's busy Randwick, has been her most thriving one to date.
"My daughter loves ballet and her passion for dance can only be attributed to the environment created within the dance class. We thank you Miss Marcia for all of the above and couldn't recommend your classes more highly."
Marcia’s passion and primary focus is working with younger children. She passionately believes in the 'magical years', where children naturally feel the desire and joy of movement and self-expression.
It was this passion, skill and interest in working with young children that inspired her to develop OZ TOTS. For the last 10 years it has grown and prospered and over hundreds children have experienced the joy of dance and music with Miss Marcia.
Following many requests from parents who loved witnessing their children grow with OZ TOTS 1 (age 3-4) and OZ TOTS 2 (ages 4-5), Marcia developed OZ KIDS IN ACTION (ages 5-6). This program offers children the ideal next step to help them pursue their love of dance and music as they move into primary school and beyond.
“My priority has always been to bring out the best in each individual child. While the program has a focus on coordination and self-confidence, we also have an equally strong focus on the eight key principals of early childhood development. We use a gentle, encouraging approach in a fun, loving and creative environment. It’s this carefully crafted approach that allows the children to blossom throughout the program so they look forward to every class. Your children are truly the most precious gift and they deserve the gift of dance and music at an early age." says Marcia.
"I think you are an incredible person, Marcia, to teach and organise these little people. It can't be easy! Congratulations on producing a truly remarkable concert every year with fabulous costumes and no visible stage fright! What a confidence builder."
'Miss Pam', Marcias daughter, has trained in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Musical Theatre since she was four years old. She has been teaching dance for ten years and is especially passionate working with the 3 to 5 year age group. Pamela’s energy, dedication and compassion are an attribute to OZ TOTS & OZ KIDS IN ACTION. Her loving, playful yet disciplined approach gains the respect and warmth of the children. She is now involved in the running of the OZ TOTS programs, Administration, Training & Events.
From her mother:
"My life would not have been complete without my beautiful, talented, loving, amazing little girl. Each day I think of her and love her with all of my heart!!"
