Life without dance would be pointless

Welcome to

The Rose Academy

Our small classes allow all students to receive focused, personalised tuition, ensuring each dancer is supported to reach their potential. 

All dancers are encouraged to strive for excellence, 

using positive teaching methods to achieve results. 

Our students enjoy success with high examination grades, many of our students achieving Distinction. Multiple sold out performances. Our dancers have won championships and received 1st placings at regional competitions. We have had a dancer accepted into the Scholars programme at the New Zealand School of Dance; while others successfully auditioned to perform as child extras with the 

Royal New Zealand Ballet.

All classes are taught by fully qualified and experienced teachers, who have a passion for coaching and making 

dancing dreams come true.
