Life without dance would be pointless

Welcome to

The Rose Academy

In our small classes, all students receive focused and personalised tuition, ensuring each dancer is supported to reach their potential. All dancers are encouraged to achieve excellence, using positive teaching methods to achieve great results. 

We pride ourselves on the quality and high standard of teaching, letting the results speak for themselves. Successes from just our first three years include high examination grades, many of our students achieving Distinction; multiple sold out performances; our dancers have won championships and received 1st placings at regional competitions; had a dancer accepted into the Scholars programme at the New Zealand School of Dance; and while others successfully auditioned to perform as child extras with the 

Royal New Zealand Ballet.
