Spectrum: A Dancing School That Gets You Working

The individually tailored curriculum develops advanced performance techniques in all facets of dance, singing and acting.
School director Trish Squire-Rogers draws on her experience choreographing major events including the Melbourne Commonwealth Games and the Logies. Fellow director Katie Rappel’s performance experience is as diverse as a performance in The Tales of Hoffman to cheer leading.
