Testimonials

Spectrum has not only changed my dancing but my life. After 3 years of intense training, full of support, guidance, love and amazing opportunities, I am now leaving my final year of training early after receiving a contract with Disney Live. The faculty and program, that has been put together by the most incredible directors at Spectrum, really prepares you for anything that can and will be thrown at you in the industry. Instilling in you great technique and work ethics, you can be sure you are equipped with the tools and knowledge to see you through your entire career.

Their facilities are great and the faculty are fantastic and highly acclaimed industry professionals. The directors of Spectrum Dance are extremely helpful and understanding and they work with you in every aspect of your learning to get you exactly what you want.

Additionally, every full time dance student is flown to Sydney for the Global Dance Convention which is an amazing experience. Spectrum Dance is like a family and I couldn’t recommend a better full time dance performing arts school.

Having travelled interstate to follow “the dream” I was met with the most amazing directors and fellow dancers I could have imagined. I went on to train for two years in the Full Time Dance Pro Course, where I experienced intense personalised tuition that prepared me for the professional workforce of the Dance Industry. The raw and honest nature of this course sees the development of every student into the best performer and professional artist that they can be. Currently I am continuing to train with the best and am working as a representative of Spectrum Talent.
Laura Parker | 2012

I completed three years of full time dance at Spectrum. The skills I acquired have equipped me with a professional work ethic as well as technical and commercial dance training. The opportunity to work with the best dancers and teachers in the industry as well as making amazing friendships made my time at Spectrum unforgettable. The gained great industry experience by working on the Footy Show, Shared Tables Events and Fashion Aid. The rehearsal periods for our mid-year and end of year performances were the times I really developed as a dancer. My time at Spectrum made me feel extremely special. I loved how we were all treated individually and the performances were aimed to highlight every person’s unique talent.
