Where are we?
42 St Pauls Street, Randwick (Opposite Randwick Ritz Cinemas)

What Classes do we offer?
We offer classes in the following styles of dance to students aged 6 years & above.
  • RAD Ballet: Primary to Advanced Levels
  • Jazz: Primary to Advanced Levels
  • Additionally, older students are given the opportunity to take Contemporary & Eisteddfod Classes.

Who are we?
Mark Reily & Peta Frith (also known as Mr Mark & Miss Pete) have been teaching at the Dance Spot since 2001. Mr Mark is a former member of the Australian Ballet Company & Miss Pete is a fully registered RAD Ballet teacher. In 2006 we became the principals of The Dance Spot Studio & together we have over 40 years teaching experience with students from beginner to professional levels.
What is the connection between Oz Tots/Oz Kids/Oz Kinder & The Dance Spot?
At the end of 2005, Marcia decided to focus her time & energy purely on her Oz Tots/Oz Kids/Oz Kinder program, giving us the opportunity to run The Dance Spot. We have worked together with Marcia for many years and have watched many former “Oz Tots” go on to reach amazing standards in their dance. Marcia’s Oz Tots/ Oz Kids/Oz Kinder programs give the students a great start to dance & at The Dance Spot we continue to nurture each child’s love of dance whilst providing quality training for years to come.

Who are our teachers?
  • Miss Pete ARAD – Ballet, Conditioning Classes & Eisteddfod Work
  • Mr Mark – Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Modern & Eisteddfod Work
  • Mr Paul Saliba – Contemporary – formerly of The Australian Ballet Company & Sydney Dance Company
  • Miss Alisha – RAD Registered Teacher with 10 years’ experience as Professional Classical Dancer through Europe
  • Miss Kayla – Freelance Jazz teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience

How do I enrol at The Dance Spot?
Fill in the Expression of Interest Form for 2019. Please complete this form & return to Marcia no later than Saturday, 20th October 2018. This information will allow us to finalise our timetable for 2019. Only students who return the Expression of Interest Form will be allocated into a class at The Dance Spot. Please ensure you return this form to Marcia, so you don’t miss out as places are limited. Alternatively, forms can be returned to The Dance Spot in person or by simply emailing the required info to: office@dancespot.com.au by the above date. Late in Term 4 we will then supply you with class times & prices. To confirm your child’s place in this class, we will then require a non-refundable deposit, which will be deducted from your 2019 Term 1 Fees. Please be aware class sizes are limited & places cannot be guaranteed without a deposit.

How do I know what classes I should enrol my child in?
Marcia or your Oz Kinder Teacher will be able to guide you with this decision. After working with your child throughout the year (possibly even longer) they will be able to suggest which classes would best suit your young dancer. Additionally, we have scheduled Open Classes for Oz Kinder students. For those who are interested, we would like to offer you the opportunity to come & view our students in action as this may help you decide on classes for next year. Attached you will find a timetable of the classes we are making available to view. These classes will be run as a “normal” class with you as our guest for part of the class, so we ask that each student is accompanied by 1 Parent only. Please understand that other siblings will not be permitted to watch these classes as it is a “regular” for our students & having any additional siblings in attendance will cause a distraction to our students.

We look forward to meeting you at The Dance Spot soon!
Miss Pete & Mr Mark

  • Additionally, we ask that only 1 Parent accompany each Oz Kinder student to minimise distraction to our students.
  • When you arrive, please come to The Dance Spot office & you will then be shown to the correct studio.
