NEW IN 2018 – Dance ARC will be able to offer Ballet exams in the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet syllabus. 


 Dance ARC offers weekly classes in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop & Singing for all ages and experience levels. We have two streams in the skills development program, Dance for Dance & Dance for Concert. Dance for Dance are technique classes in a variety of styles that are not leading to a concert. Dance for Concert are classes in all styles that culminate in an end of year concert.



 Specialist Workshops

This is part of our responsive approach to providing dance to our community. Dance ARC will organise one off, or short series workshops in particular styles and skill sets as requested by our community or as opportunity presents. For example this year we have had tumbling workshops from RUCCIS and will have masterclasses with professional artists as they travel through Melbourne.

DANCE Loops #

Dance Loops are school holiday programs that focus the passion and energy of young dancers to create, share and push their movement boundaries in a safe and encouraging environment. Designed to deliver a microcosm of the creative process, from idea to performance, students will learn new skills, hone the ones they already have and share in making high quality & age appropriate dance for an informal performance to parents and invited guests.




Youth in Motion Performance Ensemble will be a youth dance company based in the Yarra Ranges working on a project basis to bring professional choreographers to work with young people in the community on new and exciting performance projects with themes relevant to this place!!!!
