Dance Company

Pazaz Dance Co is one of the leading dance institutions in Belmont and Rockingham area.

Established in 2002, we aim to encourage a widespread love of dance, welcoming every single student who wants to get moving!

About Us

Pazaz Dance Company (PDC) was originally established in 2002. We are a Christian based school that offers children of all ages the opportunity to dance in a positive learning environment.

At PDC, we provide programs that develop the important skills of coordination, musical appreciation movement, fitness, creativity and imagination.

Our dance school fosters a fun community for all our students and their families. We offer not only dance classes but a place where lasting friendships are built, both for our students and their parents.

As we believe in protecting the innocence of the child and the integrity of each performer, we take care in choosing age-appropriate songs, choreography and costumes.

Feel like you have seen us before? We were previously known as Footprintz Dance Academy in Belmont and Angelina Ballerina Academy in Rockingham. Changing our name has given us the chance to be one big happy family 🩰.

To ensure classes are suitable for those who attend, we offer a range of options across styles, age groups and abilities. Whether you are aiming for a professional career, looking to stay fit or finally ready to give dance a try, we have a class for you.

Pazaz Dance Company offers a range of styles, including Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Broadway (Singing), Acrobatics, Dance with Me class, Ready Set Dance, Ready Set Ballet, AcroDance and more.

VISION
OUR VISION

Our vision is to create a community hub for students of all ages and abilities in every style of the performing arts.

Our drive is to have this hub be the largest community based, non-competitive performance academy in Perth while still providing a small community feel where everyone is valued, cared for and part of our family.

Our ongoing goal is to have our own state of the art studio to continue offering all dance genres, drama and singing classes.

MISSION
OUR MISSION

At Pazaz Dance Co, our mission is to provide quality, caring, enjoyable, and achievable dance tuition to children in our local community. We strive to nurture children in the performing arts by fostering confidence and imparting the values of kindness, integrity, compassion, inclusiveness, and teamwork.

PDC’s point of difference is that we are a values driven, community based dance studio that provides opportunities for students to perform rather than competing in dance competitions. Students are taught solid techniques and given the proper foundations leading to options where they can further their studies as they progress into their teenage years.

Students are exposed to quality music, creativity, costumes, and choreography for our performances which draws on historical examples as well as experimenting with new innovations.

We strive to create a family-oriented atmosphere and community where all dancers feel welcomed and valued.

Our teaching team offers a vast array of individual skills and interests. Students benefit enormously from this collective knowledge base and are encouraged to maximise exposure to as many teachers and genres as possible.

On departing our studio we hope that students will reflect on their time at PDC very positively.

Physical skills, personal memories, experiences, and friendships at PDC will form part of their life story which in turn will contribute to their adult identity.
