About Us

aboutEstablished in 1996.

Located on Colchester Road, Kilsyth South, the Yarra Heights Dance Academy boasts over 400 students. Classes also run in Mooroolbark, Healesville and Wandin North. We have many top industry professionals, teaching dance in a wide range of styles.

In 2018 we have built brand new state of the art studios.  We have three fully equipped studios with fully sprung dance floors, ballet barres, mirrors and sound system. There is ample off-street car parking, and clean kitchen and bathroom facilities, plus a waiting room for parents

Yarra Heights Dance Academy is a registered dancing academy with the Australian Academy Of  Theatrical and Ballet Dancing Inc. (AATBD Inc), which is a recognised society for Australian Dance. We work in conjunction with the academic school year and take most of our enrolments in January and February. However, you are more than welcome to come along and join any time during the year.

Each year the students perform in a concert, held at the George Wood Performing Arts Centre in Ringwood. These concerts are well renown and very popular within our dance community. We also supply costumes from our on-site costume hire shop, at great value to the parents. This means NO costume making for parents!

If you would like to take your dancing a little more seriously you can take the AATBC Inc accredited exams. They are optional, but they will certainly challenge you to become a stronger dancer. Following from these, students in Intermediate and Senior levels can take public examinations and competitions, and compete for trophies and scholarships.

The Yarra Heights Dance Academy staff would love to set you on the road to enjoying dance, having fun and getting fit.
