Establishing Wellington Ballet Studio in Miramar was a big leap of faith. After; years of training, dancing professionally with the Royal New Zealand Ballet, studying teaching and freelancing across the Wellington region, I was looking to open my own studio. Having Sir Jon Trimmer agree to being the Patron of my school was a great endorsement.
I was excited to see an opening in the market in Miramar which I had always thought of as a vibrant, creative and cool suburb. Not to mention the fabulous beaches which remind me of the North Shore in Auckland where I grew up dancing all those years ago.
Two and a half years on I’m delighted to be have bought a house in the area. I’ve welcomed another experienced teacher Jill Lister-Martin on board and am pleased to see the studio gradually becoming more established. I’m loving living in the community and passing on my love of dance by giving local children the best experience I possibly can.
We offer Pre School classes from 2 year old’s Tippy Toes (a Parent & Child class) up to RAD Grade 3 ballet currently. We started a Junior Contemporary Dance class this year which is proving popular and are looking at introducing another modern dance style in 2018. The end of year performances are great fun for parents & students and what dancing is all about in the end!
