“Miss Kiane O’Farrell has taught my daughter many musical theatre skills in auditioning and stagecraft! For years my daughter has had vocal classes with a variety of teachers. Despite being able to hold a tune and sing well, she has never been taught to actually perform on stage or connect with the audience. Miss Kiane is the GURU when it comes to performing on stage. And my daughter certainly has developed at a rate of knots this year!!! Kiane is not one for teaching “sitting down in a studio”, she’s up and active during the whole lesson... there’s no taking it easy or playing on "iphones" in class. We are forever grateful to Kiane and TDC for finding time for us!” – Kylie Pope. Students: Kate and Shevaun.

  • "My daughter has attended TDC for the past 4 years and I can't rate it highly enough!! Her confidence has improved so much in dance school and with her friends! All the teachers are fantastic and give each child a chance to shine! Lisa and Andrew are amazing with the children and always have time for them! Thanks TDC and Miss Lisa for your kindness, patience, persistence and all the opportunities you have given my little girls!" - Tina Robertson. Students: Ava and Lexi.

  • "I am impressed with the level of recognition and encouragement each child gets regardless if they are elite level or recreational. Both my daughters are very different. One is musical theatre, the other high-energy acrobatics, yet both girls have felt nurtured and respected and given loads of specialized attention and training specific to their needs! I feel the teachers really know each child's passion and really zone in on it! My 8 year-old is now doing aerials and flips, and my musical theatre daughter has attained two lead roles in outside theatre company productions. TDC has certainly been the best decision we’ve ever made!" - Kylie Pope. Students: Kate and Shevaun.

  • "It is wonderful to Ella and Olivia come to dancing each week with such enthusiasm. My girls love to make up dance routines at home; it's great to see them working on "little concerts" together. Lisa is an amazing young lady who nurtures, teaches and creates fun for all the children she meets. We are also lucky to have met her and the whole TDC team. Thank you so much for the gift you give to all those that wish to dance." - Lisa Alexander. Students Ella and Olivia Alexander

  • "Ava has become more confident since joining TDC last year. She loves Lisa, and why wouldn't she, Lisa has a fantastic personal rapport with the children. We have enjoyed our time here & look forward to many more years dancing together." - Tina. Student: Ava

  • "Jasmin enjoys dancing hip hop & jazz classes, Lisa is a fantastic teacher and Jasmine has learned a lot since she has started. Her confidence has increased in her dancing & also is a lot more focussed in general." Helen (Jazmine's mum)

  • "Ava has become a more confident performer since attending TDC. Discovering new techniques and pushing the boundaries of her capability thanks to her amazing teachers. Each year it amazes us of the changes in development we can see in Ava's progress." -Happy Joslyn Portelli. Student Ava

  • "Lisa is a healthy role model and personally invests in all her students. We are astounded with the progress Ella has made under Lisa's tuition and guidance this year in both her dance ability and confidence levels. All the teachers and students at TDC encourage and support each other to achieve their best." -Rebecca Windsor. Student Ella
