MAPA was built with the vision to provide a professional and safe space for performers to thrive. The team’s warmth, integrity and commitment to make every student feel special permeates through our academy.
MAPA is the kind of school many of our teachers wished they had available to them when they were pursuing their performance dreams. There are plenty of dance and performing arts schools offering education and development of strong technical foundations, but not all of these offer a place where every artist feels valued, nurtured and recognised. That’s the MAPA difference.
As a team we’re lucky to witness great moments in the lives of young people right here in our studios. We watch them make new friends, encourage each other and mature as performers. MAPA offers every student a safe space to discover the importance of self expression – in class, on stage and in life.
Our foundations firmly lie in performing arts and we are proud to offer a range of dance styles to develop well-rounded dancers. Our teachers specialise in contemporary, jazz, tap, hip hop and so much more, they have performed around the world and bring the highest level of education to the classroom. We offer classes for beginners through to pre-professional levels and offer an elite training program for performers ready to achieve their highest potential in performing arts. Explore timetable.
