 Performing Arts Academy

Danceland has been in operation since 1971 and continues to nurture the performance dreams of children on the Gold Coast. Danceland, one of the country’s oldest and most highly regarded dance studios, has launched Kids In Motion to offer performing arts to kids in before and after school care, and vacation care.

The Performing Arts Academy is based on NSW school terms and runs half hour lessons from 9 am to 12 noon every Saturday during school term. The talented instructors [KMS1] at Danceland are all dance champions and excellent teachers who love to give children a chance to sing, dance and perform in front of audiences. If you are hosting a wedding or kid’s dance party, we also have portable outdoor dance floors available for hire.

Kids In Motion is government rebate approved, and parents will receive the Child Care Rebate on all bookings for before school care, after school care and vacation care. We have an affordable fee structure, and we do try to be as flexible as possible with pick up and drop off times.
