Dance is accessible to all of us in some shape or form; it has been since the beginning of human civilisation. Watch a young child and you will see dance in its most primal form, uninhibited and joyous. 

At Peninsula School of Dance we further this in our students by providing sound training in the technique and artistry of dance. Teachers are qualified and committed to ongoing training and development through our membership with Cecchetti Ballet Australia and the Australian Teachers of Dance. Our junior classical students also benefit from having a live pianist at all their lessons - a unique advantage for PSD students.

Peninsula School of Dance prides itself on providing a safe, friendly and nurturing environment. We take our job seriously so that you and your child reap the benefit by receiving the highest quality training in a safe and friendly environment 

The school offers training in the following disciplines:

  • Classical Ballet (Cecchetti Method),
  • Dance Play
  • Jazz/Funk
  • Hip Hop
  • Tap
  • Contemporary
  • Stretch and Strength
  • Pilates
  • Students wishing to pursue a career in teaching are also encouraged and supported.
