Goodhew Dance is one of the leading dance institutions in Sydney’s inner suburbs. At our studio, we aim to encourage a widespread love of dance, welcoming children and adults who can’t help but feel the rhythm!
As a family operated business established in 1989, we are so proud of our students, their lifetime friendships and everything they achieve.
ABOUT GOODHEW DANCE
Located in Alexandria, Goodhew Dance is a comprehensive dance school for children of all ages. We offer a wide range of styles so our students can choose one or a myriad of styles and be taught in a professional but fun, and engaging way .
Our studio was established by the Goodhew sisters, Mandie, Mylie and Melanie. Over thirty years, we have built a reputation not only for outstanding dance training but for an environment where every student feels at home.
Past students now return to Goodhew and to bring their young children to classes. We are excited to have created a studio which so many local residents love to come back to.
Join us today with a free trial week and introduce your child to our wonderful world of dance, friendship and fun! Don’t forget to ask us about the Active Kids and Creative Kids vouchers when you enrol.
