DANCING WITH MAREE
Dancing with Maree offers a wide range of qualified teachers in all areas of dance.
With an energetic approach to teaching, you will see your children grow in all areas. We are passionate to encourage students to achieve their personal best at all times.
We opened our doors in 2003 as a small dance studio in Thornleigh, operating one day per week with just 12 students. DWM is currently in its 17th year of operation, operating five days a week in four Hills District studio locations:
- North Kellyville
Our family-oriented Hills District Dance School places a strong emphasis on technique and performance, whilst also encouraging enjoyment and friendship.
Our classes are physically and mentally challenging and aim to increase heart rate while enhancing coordination and rhythm. We have a strong philosophy based on companionship and the support of peers and team members.
Offering trial classes as we know once you try our school, you’ll want to be a part of this gorgeous and very talented community. We can’t wait to get you dancing, connected and loving your classes.
