About Us

The Dance Centre Peregian Springs, is a specialist training centre for aspiring and highly talented dancers ages 8-18.  We have been transforming talented young ballet students in our TDCPS Vocational Program into world class performers since 2009.

Our highly experienced and dedicated faculty - consisting of former soloists, ballet company directors, choreographers, and company trainers with over 25 years of worldwide teaching experience - create a nurturing environment that prioritizes respect, friendliness, and equality among students. We take great care to safeguard the emotional and

physical health of all participants.

We are thrilled to report that our students have achieved distinctions in their Royal Academy of Dance examinations. Several of our students have received invites to participate in prestigious dance programs around the world, including the Australian Ballet Interstate Program, the Australian Ballet School, the New Zealand School of Dance, the Queensland Ballet, the Royal Ballet School in the UK, and the Bolshoi Ballet School in Moscow.

We are proud to share the success stories of some of our students, including Alfie Shacklock, who was crowned the 2019 overall winner for audience choice in the supreme section at the Alana Haines Australasian Awards in Wellington, New Zealand. Alfie also competed at the Youth American Grand Prix in NYC and the Prix de Lausanne in Switzerland, and is currently a student at the Royal Ballet Upper School. Dayna Booth is another graduate of our school, having completed her studies at the Australian Ballet School and performed with their touring company of Coppelia. She has since accepted a contract with Ballet Koblenz in Germany.

About us


My son has until recently been a student at The Dance Centre for 12 years, he has been so lucky to have been taught by such caring teachers who everyday work so hard so that all students enjoy their time at The Dance Centre making friends for life and discovering the joy of dance .  The dedication and love shown by Miss Deborah and Mr. Leader and all the staff is truly amazing.  My son has is now training at the Royal Ballet School in London and that is mainly due to the training and support he has received from the all staff parents and students at the TDCPS xxx
