History

Van Loon Dance Academy – St Ives formerly known as the Robyn Ross School of Ballet builds on a reputation of excellence that is well deserved. Robyn Ross established her school in 1987 and became known as one of the leading schools of Classical Ballet on the North Shore. We continue to offer excellence in Classical Ballet tuition in accordance with the Cecchetti Method of ballet training, having taken over the school in late 2009. The school is also known for its excellence in teaching Contemporary, Jazz and Hip Hop.

Van Loon Dance Academy – Manly was established in 2004 with Principal, Jessica Van Loon, first offering Ballet classes. Passing on her love of dance to a new generation has become a vocation that has seen the school grow rapidly and it now offers tuition in Contemporary, Jazz and Hip Hop as well as Classical Ballet.
