Dance. Play. Grow.™


Innovation in pre-school dance.

GDANCE Academy offers very special classes for our tiniest of dancers with the Dance. Play. Grow.™ program.

Dance. Play. Grow.™ introduces the basics of classical ballet and dance through imagination and creative movement - children learning through adventure and play.

There is no other pre-school syllabus of it’s kind. There are no gimmicks or cartoon characters here. The program is based on creative learning and nurturing each child to bring out their very best.

Each week at Dance. Play. Grow. has a new theme, meaning the classes are exciting, dynamic and varied. Some class themes include Outer Space, Fairy Garden, Jungle Safari, The Olympics and the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. Dance. Play. Grow. students learn essential founding skills in dance and the performing arts, all while having the most amazing time.

Each class includes elements of Ballet technique, Jazz, Singing, Drama & Mime, Improvisation, Games and much more!

Every week is a new adventure at Dance. Play. Grow.™ and the children maintain an enthusiastic and energetic approach to their learning.

What the Students' Say


"During my time at GDANCE Academy I have not only gained a wonderful technical foundation but also so many wonderful friends. It feels so great to be a part of such a friendly and supportive community".

Maddy, 14 years

"As someone who, from a young age struggled with handling stressful situations and often as a result, experienced anxiety, dance has always felt like a safe haven. A place where ai could forget the stresses I had felt prior to class; an outlet and a space where I could concentrate on improving  skill that I will always treasure."

Hannah, aged 17

"From a young age I was always determined to be a ballerina so at age 4 my mum enrolled me in GDANCE Academy. From that day on I have loved everything dance had offered me - lifetime friendships, discipline and an amazing love for the arts. It has kept me healthy and offered me amazing opportunities to learn from professional dancers in the industry. I couldn't ask for better students to dance with or more amazing teachers to learn from."

Georgia, aged 16

"When I first started dancing I was very, very shy and I was too scared to even say hello to people! Coming to GDANCE Academy has changed me so, so much from a shy young dancer to a confident grown one. I really enjoy dancing and performing!"

Alyssa, aged 15

"From a young girl who wasn't so confident in front of people or meeting new people, I've become an open and confident person who can teach classes of all ages. I learnt confidence from dancing on stage, being out of my comfort zone and interacting with new people. I now encourage the kids I teach to do things out of their comfort zone and to participate in challenging exercises to improve their skills".

Megan, GDANCE Academy former student and teacher

"I started out at GDANCE Academy when I was 4 and I love it in so many ways. I always wanted to be flexible so I made that my goal in each class. I started doing more dance styles as I got older and now I have definitely achieved my goal thanks to the wonderful teachers. Now I want to do solos!"

Cristina, aged 12

"GDANCE has helped me gain social skills and be myself. It has helped me overcome my fear of performing in front of people."

Jacklyn, aged 14

"I was shy at school and with dance my confidence grew and I made loads of new friends. Not only have I have achieved great technique and flexibility, but I have really benefitted in school because dance makes me more alert and I've been getting better grades."

Sophie, aged 12

"I love coming here. It is the best dance academy in the world". 

Lana, aged 8

"We can do dance different styles. Dance is welcoming. We are all friends and we are following our dream".
