Burns Bay Dance Studios provides a professional, fun filled atmosphere for students who may wish to learn the creative skills of dance or merely for the purpose of fitness. Here at Burns Bay we also provide classes for students who want to take dance a little more seriously and maybe one day, aspire to dance or teach professionally.

Their qualified team teaches a full range of dance classes in ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap, contemporary and acro dance… just to name a few. Does your child have a serious passion for dance? No problem, they also nurture solo and group performances for Eisteddfods, and work with all ages, from walking children to adults. Private coaching is available on request. Whatever your dance requirements may be, you’re in safe hands!

Special Olympics

Every week Burns Bay Dance Studios holds a dance class for the Special Olympics Sydney Upper North Shore dancers. The aim of the dance class is to produce passionate performers.

The group has been dancing for 14 years with Burns Bay Dance Studios.  Chelsea Capper, Burns Bay Dance Studio director, loves teaching the group.  When the group gets together everyone lights up and everyone gives it a go.

Chelsea says even if she is having a bad day as soon as she starts teaching the group she feels better.  Chelsea loves seeing each dancer grow in confidence.  Everyone take its at their own pace and if they want to step out and sit down for a while that is okay.  When a student first comes they might be a bit reluctant but soon they are joining in with everyone.   Each year she sees the dancers improve.

Each dancer has a different type of disability.  Some of the dancers have been dancing for years.

Term Classes

Burns Bay Dance Studios has a wide range of classes throughout the week. Enrollments are term based and all Term 4 bookings will attend the end of year concert which is a must see show!

During the year BBD has various weekend discos for fundraising, bring a friend to class week, taster week (term 4) and theme days to correspond with different events such as Halloween!

Giving Back

When a child is injured or diagnosed with a serious illness, the whole family is impacted. Lives can be turned upside down, and families are under enormous emotional and sometimes financial pressure. It can feel like it’s impossible to hold it together for many families.

That’s why Burns Bay Dance Studios is hosting another Dance for Sick Kids event to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities – which do fantastic work in supporting kids and their families.

Miss Chelsea regularly participates in the ‘Stars of the North’, a fundraiser for the Cancer Council modelled on the popular ‘Dancing with the Stars’ tv show.
