To the families that have been with us for the past few years we welcome you back to what is going to be our biggest year ever! To those of you just joining us, we are so excited to meet you and welcome you into our BDC Family.
BDC is more than just a dance school, We are a community of students, parents and teachers who share a passion for the Performing Arts. Brookvale Dance Centre is a premium provider of dance development programs for students of all ages, levels, and abilities.
There is a high demand for both our Adults program and our innovative dance programs curated for students aged 3-18years.
We take our roles as mentors very seriously and strongly believe that the life skills children develop by studying dance serve them throughout their adult lives.
We are super excited to share with you that we have moved to bigger and better premises now located at 3/7 Orchard Rd, Brookvale!
Just a hop, skip, and a leap away from the bus depot and Warringah mall, our new dance complex is easily accessible from both directions and has plenty of street parking as well as rooftop parking.
BDC Comprises 3 large Studios with safe, sprung dance floors, office/reception, parent waiting room, student waiting room/study area, Kitchen and Bathroom Amenities, and our Costume wardrobe, all under the same roof!!
BDC Students are passionate, fearless, resilient and creative. They love our family environment, and are connected to like-minded individuals leading to lifelong friendships.
“It’s so inspiring watching your friends grow and having them encourage and support you, your dancing friends are your life friends are always there for you”
Maddie (Senior Student)
“Hanging out with people I love and doing what I love is just the best” Amelia (BDC Intermediate Student)
“I love it here because the teachers see us and there is so many unique dance styles that you just can’t do elsewhere”
Sarah (BDC Intermediate Student)
OUR SIGNATURE DANCE PROGRAMS
In order to create versatile and well-rounded dancers, classes at Brookvale Dance Centre are combined into programs which include various genres that complement each other and are commonly studied together.
Our programs are open to everyone regardless of ability and separated into different age groups. There are also options to advance into our Performance stream and be selected for additional performance opportunities in one of our competition teams or HipHop Crew.
Our programs develop physical and mental strength, consistency, perseverance, and nurture the love of dance. Students will develop life-long skills, build confidence, and most importantly… have fun.
All students are invited to perform in our mid-year showcase and end-of-year production, this is not compulsory, however, it is a fantastic experience.

PERFORMANCE TEAM & HIP HOP CREWS
Our Performance Team and Hip Hop Crew are for Intermediate/advanced level dancers and/or those who show great promise, who are interested in taking their dance training to the next level.
We have 3 Teams (Junior/Intermediate/Senior) in each of our RISE, CULTIV8 and AMPLIFY programs. Students have multiple performance opportunities throughout the year. Performance teams are invite-only, and we invite students from our programs who we feel would benefit from the next-level training that Performance Stream provides. Students must be enrolled in one of our complete programs to qualify for the performance group or crew.
Those who are interested in joining our PERFORMANCE STREAM should CONTACT US. We will set up an interview to answer your questions and talk through the commitment and expectations. We love to welcome new members to our team.
Our well educated and experienced faculty lead students through our comprehensive Syllabi ensuring students meet milestones as they acquire, associate, achieve and ascend through our programs. BDC Teachers have worked nationally and internationally as Dancers, choreographers on the judging panel, and as Competitors. As Mentors, they are both nurturing and encouraging and provide a safe, nonjudgmental, inclusive environment for all students to develop and thrive.
Brookvale Dance Centre offers 3 brand new large light-filled studios with professionally sprung floors to protect growing bones and muscles. The studio is equipped with ballet barres and mirrors and is convertible into a performance space and photography studio.
HELP KEEP OUR STUDIOS TIDY
Our beautiful premises are cleaned daily. Please respect our studios and help us to keep it looking nice. Keep your feet off the furniture and hands off the walls and mirrors. Take all rubbish with you or place it in one of the many bins provided.
You may park or drop students off on the rooftop car park after 4pm and on Saturdays/Sundays.. There is also a drop-off zone/no parking in front of the building. Please do not park or drop off on the same level as our unit, this is reserved for teachers and staff and can become very congested when everyone tries to turn around in there, it is also not safe for the students entering and exiting the building. During the day there is plenty of street parking on and around the surrounding streets. We ask parents to please be extremely cautious when driving up and down the driveways, stick to the right side as students may be traveling on the left, and maintain the speed limit of 10km per hour.
The safety and welfare of all our students is extremely important to us. All of the teachers and directors at Brookvale Dance Centre have a valid WWCC (Working with children check). Our staff have been trained in First Aid. We have CCTV in all of the classrooms. Our studios provide maximum protection for dancing bodies and all of our Faculty teach safe dance practices. First aid equipment and Incident report forms are readily available at all locations, should they ever be needed.
We want Brookvale Dance Centre to be a place where children/teenagers and adults can feel free to express themselves and their individuality without fear of judgment.
