The Rose Academy

of Dance and Performing Arts Ltd. 

Inspiring and empowering all dancers to fulfil their dreams

Welcome to The Rose Academy! We are a brand new dance school covering the Manawatu and Tararua regions. Our focus is to bring a fresh approach to performing arts tuition in these regions and truly embrace the theatre arts. We cater for ages from 3 years to adults, whether your motivation is purely for a fun, social way to move to music or to pursue a professional career in dance, we have the classes for you. 

Why Dance?

We dance to express ourselves, to discover who we are as people and performers alike; evolving our own individual personalities and style along the way. We dance for exercise, to keep healthy and fit, and improve our strength, coordination, stamina and flexibility. We dance for connection, making friendships which last a lifetime. We dance to challenge ourselves and learn the value of respect, discipline and focusing on goals. 
Most of all, we dance because it's FUN and makes us feel alive.

Why Us?

We specialise in delivering programmes developed to train well-rounded dancers and performing artists, with a focus on helping each student build confidence and excel to be the best dancer they can be. All classes are taught by passionate, caring and dedicated teachers, in a fun and supportive environment.
We are very fortunate to call The Globe Theatre our home in Palmerston North. In this studio all classes are run out of the theatre itself, making great use of this performance space. Since we are essentially training to become performers, what better way to develop these skills than to train on stage. This also means there are wonderful facilities for our Palmerston North students and parents, including a beautiful new dressing room, a spacious and comfy waiting area, and an on-site cafe to stop and enjoy a coffee.
Our Pahiatua studio has been the home of dance in Pahiatua for many years and boasts two studios, fully customised to provide the best facilities for our dancers.
