WELCOME

As parents, you know that home is the first place your children learn. You teach love, a sense of security and your family values.

Kindy and school are the second place – a place where academics and social skills are taught.

What if there was a third place?

A place that provides a community of friendship, connection and belonging, where together is better and being kind is cool?

A place that embraces uniqueness, diversity and individualism, a place that encourages self-love and values everyone for their true selves.

What if there was a place that teaches young people to tackle challenges and setbacks with optimism and positivity, empowering them to rise up and flourish?

A place that advances wellbeing through feeding a growth mindset, positive affirmations and knowledge that grit, resilience and working through failure is essential to learning and life.

Through teaching dance, we ‘move your heart’. Our holistic approach focuses on the mind, body and craft in equal part.

For the previous 15 years, Jane Grech Dance Centre has been that third place.

Now, as DanceArts, it can also be yours.

Academy

For children 8 years and upwards, The Academy provides a broad range of dance styles. While more traditional in approach, our focus on holistic learning and teaching the mind, body and craft remains carefully cultivated. Classes are created in line with well-established and researched methods where psychological and physiological safety is a priority. Academy students and teachers love what they do and are grateful for opportunities to dance with and for others, with many performance opportunities offered throughout the year.

Junior dance club

Our Junior Dance Club serves as a child-focused, play-based entry to dance classes for children 3 to 8 years. Children are taught in age-appropriate ways where the foundations of the correct technique are laid through gamification, repetition and teaching to the whole child. We wholeheartedly celebrate childhood and focus on the present rather than fast-forwarding the future. We value the opportunity to let kids be little and design our experiences to mirror the maturity of the children. Our students thrive in a casual and relaxed performance setting, especially designed to bring out their individual best, while also respecting developmental needs.
