Prelude Dance Centre is committed to the community through quality, age appropriate tuition, competitive costs, enjoyable performances and a positive customer experience where we can share the joy that dance brings.

Teaching Philosophy

My philosophy on Dance Teaching is that learning dance should always bring joy and be taught in a way to engage, excite and challenge the dancer. Dance teaching is not just about teaching steps to students, for me dance teaching is about teaching sound technique in a safe and age appropriate way while nurturing the whole child; building self esteem, confidence, creativity and an understanding of how to take care of their bodies.

Each student that attends my Centre will feel a sense of accomplishment, that they are valued and cared for and have developed life skills that will help them into their future.

I look forward to our Centre being a community who support, encourage and help our children to grow into confident and caring adults.
