We truly care about every student and their family. Our students come to us for dance and graduate with strength and grace beyond the classroom.
We educate the whole child. Dance is not just about getting the steps right but also supporting young dancers to be inspiring, strong, passionate leaders in the community and beyond.
Our dance families describe us as: passionate, approachable, joyous, enthusiastic, organised, encouraging, knowledgeable, consistent, exciting, friendly, magical, genuine and surprising
Our programs are streamlined and feed magically into the next, moving students through the levels seamlessly. Every new step, skill and technique learnt is deliberately put in place to help prepare our students for the next steps in our programs.
We are Unique
There is no other dance studio like us. We stand out from the crowd and continuously innovate to keep our students engaged, focused, accomplished and moving forward in all aspects of their life. Our students graduate from our programs with their heads held high. Walking into the world with extraordinary confidence and grace.
Tash - Founder & Creative Director
Tash’s love for dance began at a very young age when she would perform at the local RSL club with her Pop. From the moment she started walking at 9 months she just wanted to move and groove.
Starting dance classes at 5 years old was life changing for her and she has never looked back.
Over many years of taking classes, assistant teaching, teaching and now becoming the Creative Director of Lavish Dance she has learnt many different styles.
Tash traveled all around Japan in the Yosakoi Dance festival and has danced in many Japanese traditional festivals. “Being in Japan and learning traditional and modern Japanese dance was an absolute highlight of my career. Learning from Japanese professionals is something that only happens once in a lifetime.”
Tash’s passion for teaching emerged when she took on the role of assistant teacher at her local dance school. From that moment she knew that she wanted to teach and mentor for the rest of her life.
I genuinely LOVE my job. Seeing the students faces light up when they get a move right for the first time, watching the parents beam with pride as their children perform on stage, seeing confidence levels grow. It is so so rewarding, and my students will always leave a lasting impression in my life.”
Tash - Creative Director
Lavish is exactly the kind of dance school I hoped to find when I started to look for a dance school. I love the community feel among staff and parents and the low pressure & fun atmosphere.
