About Us (1).jpg


Established in the early 90’s DANCE1 (then known as Gordon Ballet & Dance), began as a small dance school of roughly 50 students situated in the quiet back streets of Sydney’s North Shore.

In 2000, the studio’s then principal recognised the need to bring the dance school into the millennium and set about combining the GBDA philosophies with a fresh and funky personality.

The result is a dance studio that strives to give all students equal opportunity. We aim to nurture a passion for dance, promise to provide a professional performance experience and we GUARANTEE smiles and laughter.

Now headed up by Miss Kirsty and her team of dedicated staff, it is those principles and philosophies that continue to form the foundation for DANCE1.

Over the past 20 years DANCE1 has become a multi-faceted studio, offering students of all ages a wide variety of classes across all dance genres.




At DANCE1 we believe it is important to provide our students with a positive environment to nurture their self esteem and grow their confidence.

We believe that too much competition can erode your child’s love of dance. At DANCE1 dancing is not about the size of trophies, it’s about achieving your individual best – striving for your point of excellence.

At DANCE1 we want all our students to feel the buzz and adrenalin of loving dance and so we give them all their moment in the spotlight. We strive to make every dance experience a positive one and we do! The bright eyes and confident big smiles after our lessons speak for themselves.

At DANCE1 we will continue to evolve and ensure we remain at the forefront of dance education.
