User Guide To Dancing Schools & Venues

Dance schools are institutions where dance is taught to the students. Dance schools have dance studios where the students learn or rehearse dance techniques from certified dance instructors. Dance schools in Australia have produced many professional dancers in different dance styles.

A dance school is an institution where different styles of dance such as ballet, jazz, hip hop, and contemporary are learned and perfected. Dance schools have sprung flooring which provides a degree of flexibility to absorb the impact of intensive jump exercises and to promote good health and safety. One common feature of a dance school is the presence of a barre in every studio. It is a stationary handrail that is used for ballet warm up exercises. Another common feature is mirrors on the walls of the studio.
Music is a vital part of learning in dance schools and almost all have their own sound systems for playing music. Most professional dance schools have their own piano for musical accompaniment for all dance classes.
The Register of Cultural Organisations under the Office of the Arts of the Australian Government assists qualifying bodies such as dance schools to attract support and strengthen the nations cultural life. Some dance schools receive tax deductable donations from private sectors for their activities and theatrical work.

The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations is the government agency that leads the country's education and workplace training as well as transition to work. It collaborates with the different government agencies with the states and territories to provide easy access to educational services and support programs to the Australian people. It also aims to increase workforce participation and promote fair work practices in Australia.

Tips for choosing a good dance school

  • Visit a dance school in person and do not rely on internet searches. Try to set an appointment with the school staff and observe their classes as well as their facilities. This would give you a good idea of how much care they put on developing relationships with their students through their dance classes.
  • A good dance school will have a structured program for each level and some form of evaluation to see if the students have attained the skills needed to move to the next level.
  • A good dance school will establish the student's proper technique first and foremost before devoting their time preparing for the annual school recital or other competitions.
  • A good dance school will have qualified teachers and instructors to assist in the growth and development of their students. They should be able to expand the students abilities and challenge self-awareness.
  • Special flooring is essential to minimizing the risk of injury on the dance floor. The studio should always use sprung flooring that is well-cushioned and non-slip.
  • The costs of learning in a dance school should be made available to you before enrolling. Try to compare the costs of different ballet schools. Do not always choose the cheapest program available since it does not always equate to a positive outcome.
