Welcome!

We care about your child’s dance training! 

So let your child’s first step be correct.

All the advertising on this site and for the Dance School are of our beautifully trained dancers.

Remark from Karen Malek, Adjudicator for over 20 years, President of ATOD, Ballet Mistress at TRANSIT DANCE Melb.

‘I recently spent a delightful day examining at Jan Pianta School of Dance and was thrilled with the standard of work presented.   It is so refreshing to know that East Gippsland has such a high standard of dance training available at its fingertips.   

Country Victoria has produced many fine dance artists over the last 50 years.  I travel not only throughout Australia examining and teaching, I travel the world and can safely say that the standard of teaching in Bairnsdale with Jan Pianta School of Dance is of the highest order.   

Congratulations Jan on the standard of work presented.    I am excited for your future……….’
