Fantastic dance school! The teachers are excellent dancers and dedicated professionals. Cheryl and the other staff create a supportive, friendly atmosphere and support us to strive for excellence and be the best dancers we can be. Thank you all so much!

Love this place!
My whole family; my husband, teenage sons and myself have lessons there and completely enjoy our time there. If it’s during our class and private lessons or social nights and special events, we have heaps of fun. We have met wonderful people who share our love for the music and we couldn’t be more grateful for what it’s done for our family

I came to Melbourne 2 years ago on a holiday and wanted to go dancing while I was here. Dance101 was the first studio I came across and found the staff very friendly and accommodating. Since then I have moved to Melbourne and have reconnected with Cheryl and the Dance101 crew and was offered a teaching position. I am extremely happy with the studio and the lovely people involved. 5 stars.
