Please note:

Our 2020 tuition fees are based on an 8-week minimum term.  Some terms may be longer but are not charged extra. Students who miss classes due to public holidays may be offered the chance to attend a different day catch-up class.  Workshops may be added or classes not held during exam or concert weeks.


Wellington Dance & Performing Arts Academy offers age-appropriate performance opportunities for all students.  As students progress through the ballet and jazz grades, this can include learning group or solo routines for dance competitions.

Here are the steps for those interested:

  1. Talk with your teacher, Wendy and Suzanne and let them know you are interested.
  2. If we think it is the right time and fit for you, we will recommend you join an extension class.
  3. From these, we cast competition groups and offer private lessons for solos.

We have a closed facebook group for WDA families who are involved with extension class, competition groups or solos.  Information about upcoming competitions, entry forms etc will be posted there.
