Our School Programs

We are proud to be able to offer such a wide range of styles and opportunities for our dancers.  Whether you are experienced or an absolute beginner KDA has a class for you! 

Our Styles

At Kellehers Dance Academy there is a class for everyone.  Contact us today to discuss the best class options for yourself, son or daughter!


An artistic form of elegant and refined movements, ballet training at Kellehers Dance Academy promotes good posture, coordination, flexibility, poise and strength, while developing confidence and self-esteem within each individual.  Ballet is a technical and strict dance style.    Ballet is the most beneficial form of dance for body placement,  we highly recommend if any student wishes to improve their technique and move on to more advanced levels of dance then 2 ballet classes per week are required to achieve these results.

Teaching the British Ballet Organisation Syllabus (“BBO”) and open classes, opportunities exist for both the young enthusiastic dancer and the aspiring professional student.   Classes are available for both boys and girls starting from Introduction to Ballet right through to Solo Seal.  Students are encouraged to participate in examinations however this is not compulsory.  If you are participating in Grade 4 and upwards you are required to attend 2 classes per week to achieve the best results in these levels.


Tap is a fun, technical & rhythmically challenging style of dance, which gives the student a greater understanding of musicality.   Tap builds on a percussive style that can accentuate rhythms or make music of its own. 

We are proud to be able to teach BBO’s Tap Syllabus to our students in levels from Pre Primary right through to Advance 2 Tap.  We encourage our students to participate in examinations however it is not compulsory.


A modern and energetic style of dance for all ages that combines popular music with strong and dynamic movement.  Jazz classes offer a unique and fun program that promotes both fitness and flexibility. 

Our classes are designed around the COMDANCE Jazz Syllabus and taught to our dancers 5yrs+.  Students are invited to participate in Jazz Examinations however this is not compuslory. 

Musical Theatre

Junior Musical (7-11 years) and Senior Musical  (12 yrs and over)   This class teaches our students the art of stage presence learning through Singing as well as Acting and Dance skills.   Choreography is taught in the style of Broadway musicals hence why we ask students to be enrolled in a jazz class at least once a week.  Musical Theatre is encouraged throughout our school as it keeps them a well-rounded performer.   Our students over time develop confidence dramatically, creativeness and lots of imagination.  Experience in Musical Theatre elevates the student’s career options to perform in Musicals and Commercial Dance in the future.

Contemporary /Lyrical

Extending classical boundaries, Contemporary & Lyrical offer the dancer the emotional freedom and expression through abstract movement.  Both styles are a form of dance influenced by both classical ballet and jazz.  

Students are able to extend on their strengths and skill learning to be interpretive in the style of Dance that is so important in today’s Dance Industry. 

At Kellehers Dance Academy it is a requirement to participate in either a Ballet and/or Jazz class when undertaking either Intermediate or Senior Contemporary/Lyrical. 

Hip Hop (coming soon)

(Intermediate Hip Hop – 5-11yrs)   (Senior Hip Hop 12yrs+)

Hip Hop dance is a modern fusion between Jazz & Street dancing.  This includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking, popping, isolation exercises and teaching our students how to move different parts of their body separately.   This popular, fun and energising form of dance is one of the few disciplines in which personal style and creativity are considered to be very important.

Acro Dance

Primary to Advance levels.  Acro Dance develops a good foundation of strength and flexibility where the emphasis is placed on extensive conditioning, stretch and strength training whilst learning backflips, layouts, aerials and walkovers.  Our Acro Dance teachers are fully certified in the “Acrobatic Arts” syllabus. We highly recommend participating in a Jazz or Classical Ballet lesson once a week to enhance the skills of the student participating in the class.  The class levels are based on skill level rather than age.

Eisteddfods/ Performance Teams

Group Eisteddfods provide an excellent foundation for the aspiring performer. Students work hard to reach a high standard competing at numerous competitions  throughout the year as well learning self-discipline and commitment in a team environment. Our groups are built with students of all ages from 6yrs+.

If you have a young performer that loves the stage Kellehers Dance Academy offers a variety of genres for team performance opportunities. Our students gain great confidence, self esteem and perspective in the process. 

Please note this class is by invitation only.

Danceability Classes

Designed for children and adults with Disabilites

Intermediate & Senior Danceability – Special Needs Program

​Designed for Children and Adults of all abilities.  

Kellehers Dance Academy is an equal opportunity dance school and principal Megen Kelleher is a big believer of this.  Megen believes the labels of development, intellectual or physical disabilities disappear once a person young or old manifests the true meaning of dance, music & song.

 We have found that our Danceability program has helped our students with:  

  • Their eye contact with others
  • Their confidence  
  • Fine motor skills
  • Following directions
  • Self Expression 

Our students have grown from shy individuals to taking centre stage belting out their favourite tune at our end of year concert.  Young men walking into the studio too shy to dance but now breaking out into all the popular Hip-Hop moves across the floor. Our Danceability Classes have helped students of all ages achieve their dreams in a welcoming & nurturing environment.
