My daughter is turning 13 and has been dancing at Broadbent Dance Academy for 10 years this year. She loves her teachers and the friendships she has made will last a lifetime. I love the balance between the discipline and the caring nature of the teachers and believe this is what has made my daughter the happy and confident young lady she is today. I can’t keep her away from the studio!

We are so fortunate to have such an amazing place called Broadbent Dance Academy in the Dingley community where our children can go and learn all genres of dancing by such amazing teachers led by Marnie Armstrong, Ashlene Mendolia and Jessica Goulding. She has also travelled with the Broadbent Dance Academy to the USA, Singapore and Hong Kong. I am truly grateful and thankful for everything these 3 people do for my children. Not only do they teach them dance they nurture them so they can grow. The dedication commitment and discipline my children have learnt along the way at Broadbent Dance Academy is a direct reflection of the continuous hard work Marnie, Ash and Jess put in. What started out as my children dancing 1 night a week has now evolved into them doing all the classes , troupes and solo’s, concerts and overseas trips, with many friendships formed along the way I couldn’t think of a better place for them to be. It truly is a wonderful Dance School.

My daughter has been attending Broadbent Dance Academy for the past four years and I have been so impressed at the high quality of teaching. The training in classical ballet offers such a strong foundation for young dancers and there is an incredible variety of additional dance styles on offer. The senior dancers help out with the junior classes and are excellent buddies and mentors for the younger children. Broadbent has a very warm nurturing feel and Marnie Armstrong, the Principal, takes time to get to know each student individually. I have been delighted to see that, at Broadbent, dancers of all shapes and sizes and all levels of ability, are welcomed and encouraged to fully participate in their love of dance. The costumes, music selection, and choreography are always appropriate to the age of the children, which was important to me in choosing a school that would help my daughter embrace her love of dancing, whilst also promoting a healthy development of her body and identity. We feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful dance school.
