Why Choose Us?

We offer dance classes for all ages from preschool to advanced, plus singing classes.  We believe dance classes help children develop confidence, coordination, musicality, self-discipline and posture.  Our goal is to be the most welcoming, enjoyable and high-quality dance instruction to all our students from preschool to teens.  Our school was founded by Paula Hunt MNZM and we moved into new custom-built premises at 182 Thorndon Quay in 2017.

I love the concept of learning bits of different types of dancing, and that the children are encouraged to try everything and most of all, it is about having fun and learning at the same time! All parts have listening and learning, so I believe the whole class is beneficial to Maria's development. Awesome!
