An Inclusive & Friendly Dance School
At Neutral Bay School of Dance, we pride ourselves on making our studio an inclusive and friendly place where dancers can get an unsurpassed dance education — and much, much more. We strive to bring out the best in each student to instil the mentality that they can do anything — because they can!
Our programs are run for preschool to high school children. In our younger classes, we emphasise fun, and work to shape every child into a confident lil' dancer and person. We have no doubts that our dance classes will be the highlight of your child's week.
For our older classes, we work to maintain the same level of confidence building while evolving each dancers' skills to help them reach their full potential. But just because they're in high school doesn't mean that they can't have fun too!
All classes offered at Neutral Bay School of Dance take place within our well-equipped halls, and adults are encouraged to watch their dancers trial lesson and open viewing weeks.
