Our dance school is open 7 days a week, offering nearly 50 different classes in Classical Ballet, Jazz/Funk/ Hip Hop, Contemporary Dance, Flamenco and Tap, to students of all ages (from 2yr olds to adults)

Our 2 purpose built studios have fixed barres and mirrors and a brand new fully sprung non-slip wooden floor.  We have air-conditioning and overhead fans, together with 3 large viewing windows for parents, as well as a fully stocked dance-wear shop on site

We have a piano for use in classical ballet classes and examinations, and the very latest Denon professional audio equipment with pitch and tempo control on CD and tape. 

We have been in business for nearly 30 years, and many thousands of happy students have passed through our doors, many of whom have gone on to forge successful careers as dancers, teachers, and choreographers in the wider dance community.

PHILOSOPHY OF THE SCHOOL

 Dancing incorporates a vast variety of styles and techniques………….. Our school specializes in CLASSICAL BALLET……….. (based on the International Cecchetti Method syllabi) as well as MODERN DANCE (The very latest Jazz / Funk / Hip-Hop styles from the U.S.A. and Contemporary Techniques as taught in the Tertiary Dance Courses around Australia. We also teach FLAMENCO, which greatly enhances one’s rhythm, posture and style, as well as TAP DANCING for children.

The studio is a friendly centre where children, teenagers and adults can be educated in any of the above dance forms. We aim to help all students attain better posture and co-ordination, better flexibility and musical appreciation, as well as encouraging self discipline and artistic skills involving drama, presentation, mime and general stage craft.

As well as endeavouring to foster a love and understanding of dance and theatre in ALL students, we will recognize and nurture the gifted students to a level from which they can audition for full-time institutions such as the Australian Ballet School or other Tertiary Dance Courses.

However, we realise that the majority of students have neither the desire or ability to make dancing a career, but just wish to attend once or twice a week for enjoyment abd self improvement. We are aware that these students are very important also – as they are the audiences of the future.

 To summarise, each and every student attending this school is given the best possible training, either personally, or by my caring and qualified staff, in the dance style of their choice. They are encouraged to develop the highest degree of technical skill that they can, as well as a love and appreciation of music and dance in a friendly, non-threatening environment……..
