Our Story

We are a dance studio offering an extensive range of dance classes for all from tiny tots to adults.


Founded in 1976 by Jill Gover and is now run by daughter and teacher Rakesh Short. Rakesh has a passion for performance and dreamed of creating a fun and happy environment for children to discover dance.


The social experience is important aspect of our classes, not just for the children but for the parents as well. Parents are invited to watch all classes, it is a great way to foster new friendships and for students to develop confidence.


We are a small dance academy located in the Austinmer which is a Northern suburb of the Illawarra and just next door to Thirroul. We have always focused on the pure enjoyment of Dance and performance.
