About Stonnington

We commenced the school in 1995 with the philosophy being that you could teach children to be exceptional dancers in a caring and friendly environment. Our school commenced originally 2 nights each week, but has now grown to 7 days per week in four different locations. The majority of our students have been with us since preschool, many of whom are now studying and working in the dance industry.

The method of dance that we teach is Australian Teachers of Dance (which is a long established and highly recognised society) in Classical ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop. The examinations are not compulsory, however the students benefit a great deal in both self esteem and a sense of achievement in gaining an award. We also teach Vaganova, Russian Method of classical ballet.

We have students who have succeeded in winning at State and Australasian scholarships. In 2010 our students received a 100% pass rate in their exams, in every genre.

Many of our students have been taken overseas to Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand to participate in competitions, and we also represented Australia at the Hong Kong expo. Several of our students were the featured dancers in the opening and closing ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games. Our students also partake in various hair shows, and our seniors perform in a midyear dinner dance show which is a wonderful highlight for all involved.
