Director's Note

Welcome to the Melbourne Academy of the Arts Website.

For over 10 years, MA Arts has consistently strived to produce dancers of a high calibre. The Academy offers a creatively driven, unique  & individualised training program that covers numerous syllabi and training methods of dance. We believe our holistic approach to the arts & life provide the students with the skill sets necessary to pursue a professional career in dance as well as in other areas outside of dance and the allied Arts.

Whether pursuing a professional career in the Performing Arts or recreational dance for fitness, socialising & fun, Melbourne Academy of the Arts caters to all your needs. We encourage everyone to experience and enjoy our classes and cater to any level of ability whether absolute beginner or seasoned professional.

The goal of Melbourne Academy of the Arts is to provide an open and supportive environment in which students may comfortably balance their self-expression with what is expected of them. New students will notice the enhanced & high level of training offered at MA Arts. However, this does not mean that our staff & students do not enjoy some spontaneity, we are all interested in keeping our spirits high & our stress levels low, thus we find the balance between the high level training methods and more social & fun classes that we also have on offer.

With the continuing development of Melbourne Academy of the Arts, we hope that the future will assist in providing the necessary training programs for all of our students, aspiring to offer our clients new & improved facilities, talented staff and most importantly opportunities for dancers, aspiring choreographers and/or hopeful teachers of the future.

By being interested in Melbourne Academy of the Arts, we know you that you share in our commitments to the arts & share our values towards disciplined training, academic rigor and the personal development of each student.

I cordially invite you to join us and I look forward to welcoming you into the MA Arts Community and what I know will be a delightful and fulfilling journey for all involved.

Kind Regards,

Jasmina Stefkovski
