The Director of the Academy Ms Rita Eicens established the dance school in 1980 to provide people of all ages the opportunity to experience the magic of dance and theatre. The Academy situated in Reservoir Melbourne, trains students from 3 years of age, to a higher technical/artistic level, offering the best preparatory level of training for the vocational student for entry to external professional tertiary dance courses. The Academy also gives the recreational and 'once a week' student the ability to achieve the best possible standard. Most importantly, dance is a spiritual art form which brings the student very close to achieving perfect balance between the emotional and physical being.
There is no audition process to become a member of the Academy; all potential students are welcome regardless of ability or physique. Dance should be fun, but it must be of the highest quality to ensure that students are trained correctly. Class sizes are limited, so that you feel comfortable as you learn to dance in a personal environment with individual attention.
