Miss Denise opened her school in 1982 at the Padbury & Heathridge Recreation Centres. Due to the success & growth of the school, it was obvious Miss Denise and her students needed their own premises to further develop the school, consequently Miss Denise opened the first dancing school in Joondalup in 1991.

In 1997 she moved to the present facilities in the Joondalup Business Park to  accomodate the training of her college students in their vocational pathways.

2016 brought additional improvements and renovations to the studio to better improve the dance environment.



Over the years Miss Denise has always strived to stay at the forefront in the dance industry both in its facilities & training methods.

• To promote the love & joy of dance, whilst aiming for that degree of excellence.
• Inspire & assist each student to reach their full potential.
• Provide a safe & encouraging environment, where students make friendships that last forever.
• Offer a warm and caring atmosphere for parents & students alike.
• Ensure our facilities offer the best.  
• Keeping up to date with syllabus and teaching methods.
• Reasonable fee structure enabling students to attend more classes & meet their goals.
