“Best dance studio in New Plymouth!!! :)))).

– Sydney Becker

My daughter and I love the tiger tots class. It’s a fun and interactive program for toddlers.
Great teachers.
Nice studio.

– Samantha Hirst

“My daughter loves her jazz class, dancing and playing with the ribbon’s really puts a smile on her face at the end of each lesson.
The teacher’s are great with her as she can be shy but she is slowly getting more confident with their help.”

– Dana Parata

Such a welcoming and friendly dance school, teachers are amazing with the kids making them feel comfortable and safe to bring out their creativity in dance. Highly recommend

My daughter has been going for a hiphop class with Miss Tori since last year and her confidence has improved a lot. Really good idea having a show which my daughter enjoyed and boosted her confidence more. Good job guys for the great work you do!

– Angelynne Parulan

My daughters absolutely love dancing at AOD. Their confidence has increased and I notice them using their new dance skills in everyday life all the time. The end of year show was such a highlight of the year. It was incredibly professional, a brilliant experience for them and will be a fabulous memory for the girls forever.

– Jenny Gater

Excellent dance studio. Very supportive and inclusive staff. My daughter started this year at 9.5 years old having never done tap dance before and at no point ever felt left out or ignored at having never danced before. After this year and the performance she is now keen to give more dance styles a try.

“Really fun dance class for my little one who is 2 and attended the Tiger Tots class. Lovely teachers made us both feel at ease. Coffee and play area was nice too!”
