A big congratulations to everyone involved in our annual Studio D Own Choreography Competition and Special Performance Day!
Dancers are able to showcase their choreography talents by performing solos, duos and trios. They can also participate in improvisation sections, and can have their exam dances critiqued. We also showcase our non-exam classes like lyrical, hip hop, contemporary and our pre-school/pre-primary classes.
The performances last week were beautiful, inspiring, and thoughtful, it was clear how hard our students had worked on their routines. It was also lovely to see the progress of our non-exam classes. Thank you to all teachers and volunteers who worked together to make the day such a success!
Check out some on the beautiful photos below, it was way too hard to choose just one for the cover picture!
Our Dance Aid class was lucky enough to be invited to perform in the Beats on Pointe Pre-Performance Showcase. These girls did a fabulous job and we are excited to see their routine again at Dance Aid in June.
Thank you to Claire for the stunning choreography.

While we take pride in our uniform at Studio D, we like to have a a bit of fun once in a while and have a dress up week! We celebrated Easter this week in class, by having an Easter themed dress up! Love the creativity from our dancers!
Performances never stop at Studio D! This week Studio D was represented at the Australian Grand Prix by six lovely dancers who performed 2 flashmob dances each day!
Big thank you to our parent chaperones who attended the Grand Prix with the girls, and to Olivia Dumville who made her teaching debut with these fabulous performances! Thank you for all of your hard work!
Head over to our instagram to check out a snippet of the fabulous performances! @studiod_danceschool
It’s awesome to see our dancers out and performing at different events throughout the year. Its not all about competitions and concerts, some of our best dance memories are made at special events like the Grand Prix.
Woweee what a great time we had at Moomba this year!
Congratulations dancers and to their teacher Ally for a gorgeous performance. Special mention to Alana who was featured on her own float design as the music box ballerina, check out her gorgeous costume and make up below!
We love participating in Moomba and already can’t wait for 2019!
Check out our fabulous Moomba class as they dance with the Ballerina float, on Channel 7 at 11am on Monday the 12th of March!
What makes this parade even more special is that the float was designed by one of our very own dancers, Alan! Alana entered a float design competition last year, and drew a beautiful picture of a music box float. Her design was selected and once the Moomba organisers found out Alana was a talented ballerina they just had to feature her on the float!
Can’t wait to watch Alana and Ally’s Moomba class grace the parade route on Monday!
Two of our Junior dancers, Hannah and Tahlia were given the opportunity to dance with the Melbourne City Ballet, in their December production of The Nutcracker!
We know it was a magical experience for the girls. It has been so exciting for our Studio D dancers to participate in professional ballets across Victoria! We hope there are many more performances to come!

To celebrate the end of 2017, Studio D is holding a free trial week in the week after the concert. Any enrolled student or new interested children may attend any class during the week of Monday 20th November – Saturday 25th November. Students may also bring a friend from outside Studio D to class.
Studio D students should wear their normal class uniform to these classes. Friends and interested children should wear clothing suitable for dance, eg. bike shorts, leggings etc…
Teachers will ensure classes include the new students and are a fun introduction to dance. It would be a great idea for current students to attend classes they wish to be in next year to get a taste for the class. Please refer to the timetable page on the website for when classes are held, all classes will run at their normally scheduled time.
