PREMIER PERFORMANCE ACADEMY is the brain child of Rhiannon Longstaff and Cait Parker. Having danced since 3 years and 4 years of age respectively, the sisters had long wanted to pass their love of dance and performing onto the next generation. Commencing classes in 2007, The Academy has become a well known institution for dance in the Rockingham, Secret Harbour, Baldivis and surrounding areas.
Training under Internationally recognised syllabi, the students at PPA are offered a safe, fun, friendly and encouraging environment to achieve all that they desire in the dance world. PPA’s Teaching Team are highly qualified with advanced training in dance safety. PPA ensures age specific class structures, music and costuming with capped class numbers to ensure your child/ren are receiving the care and attention they deserve.
The benefits of Dance tuition can be seen through all aspects of students lives, from confidence and attention span to coordination and fitness. I am passionate that PPA maintains a fun, creative and encouraging environment where these benefits can be fostered.
