“NDS is such a wonderful dance school to be a part of. My daughter has been given so many fantastic opportunities which have grown her into the ballet dancer she is today and the ballet dancer she wants to be in the future. The teachers and students are like her second family, it is such a warm, supportive and nurturing environment to be a part of. She absolutely loves NDS.”

“I can highly recommend Northbridge Dance Studios to any parent with a child interested in dance. My daughter has been a student at NDS for 7 years and thoroughly enjoys each lesson in the many different classes she takes. She simply cannot get enough! The students are challenged and encouraged but most importantly have a wonderful time dancing and a lot of fun!
The teachers and in particular the Principal at NDS are passionate, caring, enthusiastic, committed, inspiring and very approachable.
The End of Year Performance is exceptional. It is very professional, and you can see the students thoroughly enjoy their time on stage. It is simply wonderful to watch and I look forward to it every year.”

“Our daughter has been part of the NDS family for the last five years. She participates in quite a rigorous after school dance schedule as well as attending a performing arts high school. We have watched as she has grown as a dancer and an individual and seen how the focus, dedication and commitment she has put in are skills that will benefit her immensely for the rest of her life in whatever path she takes. The achievements she has made are in no small part thanks to the thorough professionalism, skill and dedication of Miss Emma and her team of amazing dance teachers utilising their understanding of what each of their students is looking to get out of dance. Success comes with hard work (with a lot of fun and nurturing on the way) and no one works harder than Miss Emma and her team and it is great to see that philosophy being adopted by all the students at NDS.”

Our family has had a close association with Northbridge Dance Studios for the past 17 years and our 3 daughters have spent many happy hours dancing with Miss Emma and all the fabulous staff.
The fantastic quality of NDS is that the students can dance in whatever capacity they choose, from fun weekly classes to competition eisteddfod groups and even solo performance, if that is what their dance journey is supposed to be!!!
Emma Kohonen has the perfect mix of nurturer and teacher, giving the students spectacular dances in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
All the teachers we have had over the years have been great and our youngest daughter Gracie has spent 14 years with Miss Emma and staff in jazz, hip hop, modern and ballet, as well as eisteddfod dance. Gracie continues to dance at NDS and we have no doubt the tuition she received over the years helped her successful acceptance into Newtown High School of Performing Arts.
We cannot recommend NDS highly enough as a fun and supportive dance studio that will guide the dancer to where she/he wants to be.
