Opened in 2014, in Laycock Street North Gosford, our performing arts studio is well recognised for its strong ethos, proud history and brave new work spread across the many genres that we teach. Including multiple forms of dance, we extend our Students performance experience with vocal and drama classes aiming for a well rounded, confident performer that can use their performing arts education to enhance their adult life.

Currently operating out of our 6 studio facility in Manns Road West Gosford, our Teachers are dedicated professionals who aim to teach each student to their individual strengths. Class spaces are limited to enhance the students learning opportunity and our in house policies are written with care, experience and legislative consultation to ensure a safe, friendly and competent environment for our members.

We specialise in Highland and Scottish National Dance, through the Scottish Dance Teachers Alliance (Glasgow) and conducted under the Veronica Law School of Highland and Scottish National Dancing, which has been a leader in this genre since 1963.

Our Tap classes use the Tapatak OZ syllabus, our Ballet is conducted under the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, our Irish Dancing presented by the Halloran School; again a leader in this genre for many decades.

All our classes work across an integrated time table and our Directors personally design each students program to ensure they can reach their true potential. We believe in teaching more than dance and are dedicated to producing #strongwomenproudmen
