This Dance School is considered one of the best in Victoria.    We encourage a ‘thinking’ dancer.   As quoted by many a satisfied parent  – ‘the school brings out the best in the child’.    All children love to dance, it is innate and natural so ‘the love of dance’ is not in question!  What is done with the ‘love’ is!   That is why we do it the best!   We develop the child through the understanding that correct technical training is vital from an early age.   Students can discover through the many dance styles that are on offer – each progressive through various comprehensive syllabi.   The standards set in 1982 when the school first opened its doors have been achieved and worked and they are still being achieved and worked today.   There is no false advertising found on this website.   All photos are of our beautiful  students for your to admire.

Teachers are professional, trained and supportive to meet the needs of all students.

Student successes range from gaining entry into the Australian Ballet School ITP, (International Program for Gifted Students), The National Theatre Ballet School, Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School, Dance World 301, The Australian Conservatoire of Classical Ballet,  VCE Dance Top Acts, Transit Dance Youth Program, Melbourne City Ballet School Youth Program, highest student result in East Gippsland for Certificate 11 in VET Dance  in VCE with Victorian Department of Education and Training, state winners in the Australian Ballet School and Telstra Junior Dancer Awards and much more.
