Our lessons focus on enjoyment, social interaction, nurturing confidence and the development of performance skills. We provide a relaxed, caring environment in which students of all ability levels are welcomed and accomodated for. We understand that some wish to attend a weekly lesson while others are committed to more intensive training. We nurture intrinsic motivation in our students and teach them to achieve through the love of mastering the artform and sharing this with those around them. Connecting community members is important and we are always looking for ways to connect with the local celebrations, schools, kinders and comunity groups. Students are offered fun, optional performances each year including displays at local community events and an annual staged no-sew, no-stress concert. Our teachers are tertiary qualified artists of the highest callibre, who not only perform in the proessional industry but are chosen for their special ability to relate to and care for our students aged 1 to adult. For the budding professionals, a Youth performance Company and Junior Talent Group. We also offer a free agency to put you in touch with auditions. For parents with young children, we offer adult daytime classes to which you can bring your little one.
I studied dance under my mother Rosemary Morgan who had a large school in Canterbury, and grandmother, Noel Murray, ballerina in Australia's first ballet company, the Borovansky Ballet (now the Australian Ballet Company), before attending thethe Victorian College Arts. Transgressing the 3 generations (and now a young 4th) is a true love of dance and music and desire to share this with those around us.
