All classes are taught in a professional manner, with an emphasis on fun, fitness and friendship. Classes are suitable from 3 years to adult for students who are learning for fun, through to professional.

We have an Annual Showcase each year and hold only ONE major rehearsal. Costumes are hired at a VERY reasonable $20.00 each, which means there is NO SEWING. Check out our gallery to see some of our costumes.All concert and group photography is FREE and there is NO FUND-RAISING. All students who participate in our Annual Showcase receive a beautiful medallion of recognition.

Our academy also offers one full paid scholarship each year, this is awarded at our Annual Showcase.
