Queensland Performer’s Academy (QPA), formerly known as The Dance Works, was established in 1985. In 2017 under the direction of Miss Grace Willett we hope to offer you and your family a place of learning and belonging.

In 2017 we will be offering classes in a diverse range of curriculum from the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), Australian Teachers of Dance (ATOD) and Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dance (CSTD) encompassing; ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, acrobatics and musical theatre.

It is the belief of the Director and the ethos of our school to provide a quality dance education that will encompass both the mental and physical aspects of dance. We wish to instil a sense of pride and encourage lifelong learning in our students and offer the essential support and care to allow freedom of expression and exploration of their own inner creativity.
