Ballet, dance, drama and singing classes for children and adults: Fairfield, Melbourne

Rain’s refreshing quality of teaching and choreographic skills are an inspiration to students. The results are clearly in the students’ joy they demonstrate when they are dancing.

Be inspired, nurtured and exhilarated by the joy of learning to dance! We aim to ensure all our students feel supported, confident and happy, in every lesson. We specialise in ballet and creative dance classes for children and adults.

I have been so lucky to have started my ballet training from the age of 5 with Miss Rain. She has been such an inspirational mentor, I have always looked up to her passion of dance. She has taught me so much, not only in technique and skills, but how to present myself as a person and as an artist. Miss Rain has helped me understand the importance of each exercise and showed me how beautiful ballet is. Her classes are filled with fun and positive vibes and result in her students becoming inspired dancers with amazing new knowledge!

Teaching excellence in every ballet class

Our ballet classes are based on the Royal Academy of Dancing syllabus from the UK, and informed by many years of exposure to professional dance companies and choreographers both in Australia and abroad. Our 'Creative Dance' classes for 2.5-5 year-olds are based on the Australian Teachers of Dancing 'Imagine' syllabus developed specifically for children of this age group. Our goal is to help develop happy, healthy dancers, with excellent grounding in dance technique, the confidence to develop personal artistry and a sense of grace and respect for themselves and the people around them.
