My daughter has been part of the Shayne McCormick Ballet Centre for nearly ten years. She has loved ...every moment. The centre offers classical ballet, contemporary, tap, jazz, hip-hop including drama and singing. There is also a library for the children, a ballet shop for essentials, and a second-hand shop on site.
The parents here are warm and welcoming, and are always willing to help. The students support each other; and are taught to have respect, discipline and self-belief with a strong sense of community spirit.
The principal, Shayne McCormick is also a RAD examiner, and as one would expect, all her teachers have high expertise. Many distinguished dancers have started their careers here, such as Michael Braun (principal dancer in the the Queensland and Royal New Zealand Ballet), Rudy Hawks (Soloist of The Australian Ballet Company), and David Mitchell (Ballroom teacher and International competitor). At present Emily Doherty is in her final year studying Contemporary Dance at Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand.
I would like to recommend the Shayne McCormick Ballet Centre to any parent or student looking for a dance school with a heart. Read More
