Welcome to Kelly’s Dance Academy
Your child will love learning to dance with us as we take them on a magical journey through gently structured classes, filled with authentic dance exercises that are age appropriate. We provide a wonderful foundation to dance and offer a supportive, encouraging environment to dance in. Based at the newly renovated Karrinyup Shopping Centre and opposite Karrinyup library, we are conveniently located for you to make coming to class part of your weekly outing.
We dance for fun but we come to learn
As your child carries out their first grande jete or masters skipping – they are all very special moments that form the groundwork of our classes and your child will learn so much more than dance. Our engaging experienced teachers provide stimulating and fun classes where your child will learn an abundance of skills to develop their love of dancing and their overall development. You will see your child’s confidence blossom, both in and outside of the dance studio, friendships form, social skills and interactions improve and their overall participation in a group environment.

Our Dance Recitals
Our recitals form a very magical end to our year of dancing and are enjoyed by all.
At Kelly’s Dance Academy we like to keep our recitals low key, affordable and most of all enjoyable. Each year our dancers take to the stage and they soak up the wonder of performing in a positive way, providing them with memories to last a lifetime.
What our families say…
“Our daughter Jenna had been begging us, since the day she could talk, to put her in ballet lessons. We wanted to place her somewhere with a relaxed, less formal environment with an empathsis on cherishing and developing her love of dancing. Luckily we found Kelly’s Dance Academy which Jenna has been attending for the past few years. Jenna loves her ballet lessons and has learnt about positions and terminology through Kelly’s gentle approach. The end of year concerts are informal and so much fun. We are very happy to recommend Kelly’s Dance Academy.” Jenna’s Mum
“(There are) A variety of activities that are easy for the children to follow – pitched just right for the age. Miss Kelly is able to keep the pace of the lesson and still create a warm, fun session. The Christmas Concert provided so many learning opportunities and watching what they had accomplished in the short time was incredible.” (Josephine’s Mum)
