“PSD is where kids get to shine through dance and develop wonderful lasting friendships. There’s no place like it and for my daughter, it has definitely made her more confident.”

Message from our Principal – Melanie Gard

Welcome to our dance community. As the Director of Peninsula School of Dance I’m not interested in just churning out “the best” dancers, but I’m very passionate in helping kids reach their full potential. I believe that dance is more than just a series of movements. Dance can help us cross bridges in life.

Many students come to us with the desire to dance pumping through their veins, though their very soul. Others are here to unwind after school, have fun with friends, gain confidence, enhance their health, be inspired to express themselves, feel supported and safe and to just hang out in a place that just really gets them.

All of our students have their own unique needs for expression, and it’s our great privilege to offer support, guidance and encouragement. We know that during their time with us our students gain life skills and a solid foundation for adulthood. Dance kids have a strong work ethic, they’re committed and present themselves with confidence and humility.

We’re more than just a dance school. We’re passionate about churning out decent, well-rounded human beings who go on to have happy, healthy and productive lives. And if some of our students along the way take on the worlds stage, then we’ll be the first to cheer them on from the wings.

We’re looking forward to introducing your child to the magical world of dance!

After not such a nice start at a previous dance school my then 3 year old was very hesitant when it came to trying another. We had no need to fear, the amazing teachers at Peninsula School of Dance are fantastic and my daughter loved every minute from the very first day!! 3 years later she is still dancing with PSOD and her confidence has soared!!! She loves dancing and performing thanks to the wonderful Miss Mel, Miss Carla and the rest of the teachers and students!! Highly recommended!!!!! – K. Twigg

PSD is an amazing dance school, Miss Mel and her team have made my little girls first 2 years of Ballet such a wonderful experience, she is becoming so much more confident and looks forward to Saturdays every week where she can be her best Ballerina self  – O. Grace 

This school is one of a kind! in the few years Hazel has been Dancing she has grown so much not just as a dancer but as a person and this school has been a big part of it. – N. Rose
