Est. in 2009, we offer
affordable classes in a
fun, family environment!

Ascendance Academy is a place where kids of all ages and abilities can learn dance and acrobatics. This is a studio where creativity, individuality and self-expression is encouraged and has a community of teachers, students and families who are passionate about the performing arts.

You and your child are welcomed into our dance family. Your child will gain confidence, friendships and grow in a caring and nurturing environment where everyone is valued.


Over the years we have recognised that lots of parents worry that their child is too young or too unfocused to do dance, acro & circus. Being operating for over 12 years, we know the skills that your child should be developing and have the patience and expertise to know how to help them to develop these. Ultimately if your child doesn’t have the concentration, focus or co-ordination that they need this is the place to help them to develop the skill in our safe and friendly environment. The sooner they can start practicing these skills the better prepared they can be for school and beyond.

At ADA we recommend a minimum of two classes per week. Many of our members  even do two classes back to back on the same day. This is for a number of reasons

1. Fitness, physical strength and flexibility. The more that you can practice the faster you will improve.

2. Confidence – On your second lesson for that week you will notice your improvements and have better muscle memory.

3. Skill acquisition: the first time you experience the skill you will pick up the basic components and in subsequent classes for the week you will pick up the finer details of  the skill.

Sometimes it can be tricky to figure out if your child is keen to start dance or acrobatic lessons, so at Ascendance we offer a free trial class before making a decision to enrol with us.

Dress your child in something that is comfortable and easy to move in e.g. singlet top, tights, shorts etc and bare feet.

$17 inc gst per class.

We have some awesome package deals available too!

ADA offer one of the most flexible timetables out there to help their members make it to class as often as possible. Members are able to attend catch up classes of the same class and/or age group to be completed in subsequent weeks simply by logging in to their customer portal, it will be at no extra cost.
