About us

"My daughter Mikayla has been dancing at Studio One since it opened in Macleod twelve years ago. I think it is a fantastic dance school that offers a variety of different dance techniques for boys and girls of all ages. Mikayla has grown in confidence every year that she has been at Studio One and learnt a lot from her teachers especially Nadia. A lot of friendships have been made through dancing for Mikayla and myself with other students, parents and teachers. If anybody is looking for a local dance school I would always recommend Studio One Dance Academy."

"We love Studio One! It is a very friendly and welcoming dance school and my daughter loves her fun kinder dance class with Jess. The focus is always on having fun - even at (and leading up to) the end of year concert. My daughter was super shy to begin with and they've been so patient and encouraging. It's been terrific for my daughter's confidence and it's been such a joy to see her grow. Things like this at a young age can change someone's life. Definitely worth checking out now!"

"My daughter started a ballet class at Studio One 6 years ago. I never imagined that she would be so passionate and determined to also be doing tap, jazz and contemporary."  "Not only has my daughter learnt and developed in her different classes but she has displayed a love for all the arts. She has a strong desire to learn and perfect her techniques in all her dance classes.Her focus and passion grows as she matures and develops a better understanding of her dances as well as herself."

"I have 2 daughters that have danced at Studio One for almost 10years, they learnt many new techniques and have grown both in skill and maturity, they have both shown dedication and commitment, doing extra classes and sitting examinations each year in their chose style of dance. Studio One is also a great place to meet new people and make some great friends for children and parents."
