ABOUT

 

We move your heart

We believe in the dance studio as a ‘third place’ – a community that serves as an anchor for our students where they can feel safe, nurtured and encouraged.

Whether your child is 3, 18 or anywhere in between, our purpose is to be a positive influence in their life.  DanceArts provides high quality dance tuition delivered with care and kindness. Through our time together we create opportunities to help your child flourish and thrive as a young person.

Every day, our students are growing as dancers and as individuals. We delight in helping their confidence and self-esteem soar, from their first tentative steps into the studio to leaping courageously into the workforce or University life.

Together, our students, families and our team believe in our Manifesto:

Our mission is not solely to produce exceptional dancers but to nurture confident, empathetic, and respectful individuals who carry these qualities beyond the dance floor.

We strive to create a supportive community where students can forge lasting friendships, share their passion for dance, and celebrate each other’s accomplishments. Join us on this enriching dance journey at DanceArts, where creativity, dedication, and joy converge to create lifelong memories and a strong foundation for a future filled with dance and so much more.

Let’s dance, learn, and grow together!
