Dance Domain is a refreshing dance school in Sydney’s Inner West. We don’t believe in expensive fees and uniforms or barely-there costumes.
Our dance classes provide a friendly, no-pressure atmosphere that nurtures creative expression and allows kids to be kids all the while fostering a love of dance and learning that will last a lifetime. We steer clear of tacky and outdated music and dance moves (goodbye lycra and leg warmers!!) and our end of year concerts are affordable, stress-free (that’s right, no sewing costumes!!) and full of great popular and alternative music.
We're revolutionising what it means to take dance classes as a preschooler, school kid, or adult. Our classes are taught by a fun, young and talented team that have a passion for teaching and share the belief that dance is powerful and should be available to everyone.
Built with the students in mind, the studio offers a vibrant and safe space where kids can relax and feel right at home. From what has affectionately been labelled ‘the couch garden’, to the paintings from our school holiday workshops that adorn the walls, or the games, puzzles and books for students and siblings to use while they wait, Dance Domain is truly a space where our students and families feel right at home from the start.
Our popular school holiday workshops get kids moving and the creative juices flowing during the school break – no more bored kids! Even better, with early drop-off and free aftercare, we really make life easy for working parents and busy families.
Looking for a level thats going to teach you the absolute basics? Look no further. Level 1 classes will teach you all of the absolute beginner skills that are going to help you get a well rounded foundational knowledge of the style - think basic tap steps and shuffles in tap or learning to grapevine in jazz.
Level 1 classes are perfect for people who have no prior dance experience or who want to get back into dancing after a long break.
TAP MINI COURSE
Level 1 (Beginner)
Monday's 6:30PM - 7:30PM
BALLET MINI COURSE
Level 1 (Beginner)
Tuesday's 8:00PM - 9:00PM
Tried a few beginner dance classes here and there but wouldn't class yourself as a professional just yet? Level 2 is perfect for those who have a basic knowledge of the style and are looking to work on more dynamic features of the style. In this tap this might look like progressing to "Shirely Temples" and in Ballet this might mean adding in more allegro (fast paced) elements.
Intermediate level classes are perfect for those with a little prior dance experience or experience in similar fields - yoga or gymnastics work great for transferrable skills. In Level 3 classes you start to focus more on performance quality and more complex skill combinations.
LYRICAL MINI COURSE
Level 3 (Intermediate)
Open level classes are classes where the teacher will tailor the class to you. If the students are more advanced then they give more challenging choreography and opportunities for progressions and vice versa, if a class requires more assistance then the teacher will work to break things down more and provide regressions in choreography and exercises.
STRETCH & STRENGTH
Dance Domain offers free studio hire to students that are studying Dance or Drama at school to rehearse their assessments and HSC practicals to encourage creativity and excellence in the arts. We also offer free costume hire to students for everything from dress-up parties, Halloween and school performances.
Love performing? Why not become a member of one of the Dance Domain Performance Groups? Unlike other studios that make students audition for troupes, Dance Domain believes that everyone has what it takes to shine on stage. We focus on building confidence, learning valuable team building skills and polishing up on technique whilst having a great time.

DD END OF YEAR SHOWCASE:

An initiative dreamed up by one of our very own students, DD SRC is a chance for students to get more closely involved in the decision-making process and help make the studio an even better place for the DD community. We’re all about giving students opportunities and working collaboratively, so as soon as we heard the idea we jumped on it! Our DD SRC reps will be dreaming up new events, supporting charity drives, assisting with event set-up and management, and acting as a point of communication for all students, teachers, and team members.
Our DD SRC members are a huge part of what makes Dance Domain the coolest dance community. DD SRC members will be an integral part of creating the best experience for our students. In doing so, they’ll improve their leadership, teamwork and communication skills and get valuable experience in project management, event management, and business strategy. Not to mention, they'll create some super special events that others will love! At the end of each year, they’ll receive a written reference outlining their role and responsibilities which they can include in future school and job applications.
