At ACTiv it is our aim to ensure that students are comfortable being their absolute best selves, whilst doing what they love. The place to be for dance classes, drama lessons and singing lessons. We have an easy going, laid back, studio suitable for toddlers, pre-schoolers, primary and high school children, as well as adults. At ACTiv we embrace differences and encourage creativity, respect and kindness. We pride ourselves on being a welcoming and safe environment for children to learn and thrive.
Our terms are based off the NSW Public School term calendar
We hold 2 annual concerts, our Birthday concert (July) and End of Year concert (December). These concerts are optional, however we encourage students to participate as it helps improve their confidence and provides a memorable experience that builds friendships (incurred costs e.g. show fee)
We offer holiday workshops throughout the year
Our facilities include: Reception/waiting room, 3 studio spaces fit for dancing and singing, a kitchenette, 2 indoor restrooms, drink/snack vending machines, and a positive and welcoming staff!
