About us


The Australian Academy of Dance opened its doors in 1989. Since then, we have been helping students of all ages grow and develop into dancers, teachers and graduates.


With disciplines in ballet, jazz, tap, hiphop, contemporary, musical theatre, adult fitness and dance professionals, The Academy caters to all ages and abilities.


We have a celebrated approach to teaching dance – regardless what the aspirations of our students are (if they dance for fun, or are working towards a career in dance), we provide a learning environment that is inspiring and successful – we walk the line between technique/discipline and providing an exciting and fun journey in dance. Our teachers are leaders in their fields. We have teachers with extensive experience performing overseas, ex-principals of The Australian Ballet, theatre directors and performers, as well as up and coming professionals carving out a name for themselves in the dance and performance industry.
