Our qualified & experienced dance teachers are trained to provide professional lessons in a fun and supportive environment according to the relevant syllabus. The teachers constantly attend workshops and classes to bring new styles and techniques to the Elite Dance Academy.

The students learn to dance whilst improving their confidence, flexibility, co-ordination, posture and fitness. The students make new friends whilst dancing and performing.

In the past our students have performed at Dreamworld, Gold Coast Show and other local events. In 2012 and 2015 a group of our dancers travelled to Los Angeles where they performed at Disneyland, Hollywood Boulevarde, Universal Studios and in the Disney Main Street Parade. Our dancers also had the opportunity to attend workshops at Disneyland and the world renowned dance studio, ‘The Edge’. Our dancers recently spent Christmas 2015 in New York after performing at Disneyland. In 2019 we will return to USA , we can’t for our students to experience the thrill of performing at Disneyland again !!!

Our students are lucky enough to have guest teachers throughout the year, in the past these have included Gaz from ‘Instant Bunz, Matt Pappa from ‘Tap Dogs’ and Jillian Green from Singing In the Rain .

The students enjoy performing and competing at local eisteddfods, we also have had students in the final round of ‘Showcase’ at Jupiter’s Casino , we are proud that some of our students made it into the top 10 in their age division. Our competition students also attend the national finals for FYD in Melbourne in January and we were thrilled to have 3 age champions in Jazz, Tap and Contemporary and on National Champion.  As always we are proud of all of our students achievements .

What our customers are saying about us

  • 5 Stars!

    We have been attending classes at EDA for all of 2019 and it has been such a wonderful experience...of course we have signed up for more next year.

    Joining was the best decision we made on behalf of our 6 year old. She has made friends and learned skills for life. When I say skills, I don’t just mean awesome dance skills - I mean life skills like;

    - the ability to be confident in high-pressure situations (like the show)
    - communication and social skills
    - teamwork
    - listening and following instructions
    - receiving and working on feedback
    - commitment
    - patience
    - imagination
    - understanding
    - cooperation
    - emotional intelligence

    The list is actually endless!

    The older girls are SO inspiring and it’s wonderful to watch my little girl gaze with starry eyes at their skill and hope one day she can replicate what they do.

    By being around good people, she has learned how to be a good person!

    She has been so motivated to be fit and healthy, she has been rewarded for her hard work and has developed this lovely sense of pride - which transfers to every area of life - she knows if you work hard and stay committed, it pays off. Very important.

    I have listened to the coaches at Elite - they have danced all their lives and their passion is REAL - and the words they use when delivering speeches and instruction are SO positive.

    They have empowered generations of boys and girls to not just be the best they can be, but to help their peers to be their best self, too.

    The students Molly has met have been so kind and uplifting - they constantly cheer for each other. It’s lovely to hear.

    Molly has a community at EDA, so she has another safety net of people rooting for her, ensuring she feels safe, happy and supported. She will always thrive in that environment.

    Huge shout out to Miss Kylie who knows all of “her kids” by name, and all the families.

    Watching your pride on Saturday at the concert (which is just so ridiculously professional) was everything.

    You are a very inspiring and wonderful human being and I am glad Molly gets to spend time with you.

    I thought I was signing my daughter up to learn how to dance, but she has learned much much more.

    THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING...until next year!

  • If you are looking for a dance studio that is friendly, family orientated and supportive to all dancers, Elite Dance Academy is for you!

    The teachers are all friendly at EDA and support all dancers, at whatever stage they are at, whether they are just starting out, to experienced soloists.

    They always aim to help motivate and improve every student’s technique and confidence.

    All the families that attend are very friendly as well, and you always walk into the studio feeling welcomed.

    Chloe has attended Elite Dance Academy for the past 5 years, and to see her dance journey evolve has been amazing.

    She started her first year with Ballet, Jazz & Acro, and now in her 5th year of dance has added: Lyrical, Contemporary, Tap, Hip Hop and Troupe.

    She has made so many new friends since attending and all the girls support each other in class or at competitions.

    Troupe has given Chloe so much more confidence on stage and you can see she’s improved with every competition performance and end of year concert.

    We love Miss Kylie and our EDA family!

  • Elite dance academy is a very inviting place to dance at any age. I love EDA community because every... one is friends. I also love EDA because it isn't all about competing or competitions it's about being yourself and been who you are.

  • Our little girls Taylah and Jordie have attended Elite Dance Academy for the past 3 years. The girls love attending every lesson and have improved dramatically each year.

    Kylie and her staff run a very friendly and professional dance school and this is reflected in the quality of the end of year concert.

    I would recommend Elite Dance Academy to anyone with a passion for learning dance.

    Bec // Proud Mum
  • My daughters have attended EDA for over 5 years.

    I like EDA because I can talk to the teachers about my children and know that they care. They know my kids and I get clear feedback on their progress.

    They provide classes with good technique and concerts that just get better and better. Student examination results continue to reflect the solid work of the teachers each year.

    EDA continues to grow and improve with workshops and invitations to dance master classes in various dance styles.

    They want to produce good, well-rounded students that have experienced different teachers, styles and techniques within the dance community; which could lead to work in the dance industry if desired.

    I can also tell you that I like EDA because of the things I don’t have to deal with: egotistic teachers, overly competitive/bitchy students and parents with a dog-eat-dog attitude. EDA is none of these things, and for that I am grateful.

    Yay EDA!!

  • A wonderful dance studio!

    My 1st child started with EDA 6 years ago, my 2nd 3 years ago, and my 3rd 2 years ago. They love every minute of it.

    It has become their 2nd family and they enjoy the friendships they have made along the way.

    We participate in many dance competitions and trips away, which they love including a trip to USA where my older 2 danced at Disneyland and Universal studios and Hollywood boulevard- a trip of a lifetime.

    My children are involved in hip hop, tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, performance troupes, boys technique, solos, duos and trios and just can’t get enough!

    The commitment to dance the teachers display is 2nd to none and I highly recommend this studio to anyone!

    Besides dance skills and techniques my children have developed, friendships, respect, self esteem a love of performing and most of all self confidence.

    A very happy mum of 3 amazing little performers.

  • I could not recommend this studio enough!!!

    They are extremely professional and everybody is made to feel they belong. We had our first Dance Concert last year and it was beautiful. Not only were the ladies organised but he children were safe at all times.

    If you want somewhere your children will love to come to dance then Elite Dance Academy is the place to go.

    Look forward to another wonderful year!

  • EDA has been amazing for our daughter and our family.

    After moving interstate we have found EDA to be supportive, encouraging and experienced.

    We have had such a wonderful experience with the EDA family and are looking forward to the many years of dance to come!

    //Satisfied Dance Mum
  • My children have been at EDA for the last 7 years. The studio is great with lots of opportunities for the kids to grow and develop their passion.

    I am so happy with the quality of instruction and opportunities my girls have had at EDA but this is not a studio just for the most Elite dancer, this studio fosters the growth and development of all its students and encourages them to achieve their own personal goals.

    It is a place where the student can go and really know that if they believe they can achieve.

    My youngest has just turned 9 and as her birthday falls in December her first end of year dance concert she was on stage in front of hundreds of people at just 2 years of age and has never looked back.

    My eldest has been a school house captain and last year she placed 8th with an overall high score at the showcase dance championships at Lismore. She loves dancing and is working towards incorporating dance in here career goals.,

    The confidence and personal growth my girls have developed I can confidently attribute to their time spent dancing at EDA.

    Thank you to the fantastic staff of the Elite Dance Academy.
