Ausdance Endorsed Studio
Ausdance Queensland provides professional advocacy and industry development to the dance community of Qld. They are now running a Safe Dance Endorsed Studios program to create safer dance studios for students in our state. At the moment there are 9 studios in Qld who meet the requirements for this program and have become endorsed studios. Our studio was approved for this program last year and we are excited to continue to offer you all the same excellent programs under the endorsement of Ausdance Qld.

New Teacher - Miss Chelsea
We hope you have enjoyed your classes with our brand new teacher Miss Chelsea.

We are super excited to learn all her tips and tricks in our classes on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.
Chelsea is a highly energetic and technically trained performer with over 10 years of dancing experience. She has worked professionally as a dancer/teacher in various overseas contracts including Universal Studios in Japan.
Chelsea competed in dancing competitions from the age of 9 and continued through to 18 as well as studying VCE Dance at her school in Melbourne. Chelsea has recently moved to Toowoomba and is so excited to share her knowledge with you and help create great dancers.
