After many years of attending another dance school, I had one daughter ready to give up dance and another convinced she wasn't good enough. I decided it was time to find a school where my daughters would be trained professionally, in a supportive environment and feel valued. I knew the minute I met Rachel that this was the school for them. Just over a year down the track, my youngest daughter is loving dance and my eldest is thriving and achieving. Both feel valued and very much a part of the RSDS family. So many opportunities and so much support. Recent quote from my my 8 year old, “If we hadn't have left (previous school) when we did I would have already given up dance but now I love it”. Thank you Rachel and the families at RSDS.
I really appreciate the interview at the start of the year. Rachel Symons talks to each student to find out what they personally want to get out of their dance program. She keeps you up to date with fantastic opportunities at her dance school and further afield. At Rachel Symons Dance Studio students are continually encouraged to try new things and challenge themselves.
RSDS has provided my daughter with the opportunity to develop as a beautiful dancer in a supportive and encouraging space. The teachers bring such skill and creativity to their classes, ensuring that all students are achieving their best. What I love most though, are the life long attributes of commitment, perseverance and being part of a team that RSDS instil in their students. This is invaluable.
I chose Rachel Symons Dance Studio for my daughter when she was 4 years old and she has been a student for 8 years. Choosing RSDS for my daughter has been one of the best decisions I have made for her. She has found a place where she has flourished, a place where she belongs and feels happy! I cannot thank Rachel and her team enough for inspiring my daughter and helping her to become the best dancer she can be. RSDS has been much more than a dance school, it is like a second family.
Through dancing at RSDS for over 10 years and now moving into a teaching role, I feel so lucky and privileged to be a part of such a welcoming, kind and motivating family. Ms Rachel continues to challenge us every week and is so supportive and encouraging in everything we do. I have really grown, not only as a dancer but as a human being, building my confidence and resilience in everything I strive to do. I have made such amazing friends in my dance community and couldn't imagine being anywhere else.

AS a new family to RSDS I cannot speak highly enough about the studio. My daughter, who struggles with change, has been welcomed so kindly by the staff and students, making this transition to a new dance studio so much easier. And to see my daughter's love and passion for dance return is simply wonderful and I thank RSDS for that.
RSDS is an amazing dance studio with the most loveliest of staff. Its such a loving and caring environment and the teachers put in so much effort in and out of class. I would highly recommend for anyone of any age.
RSDS provides a nurturing environment for its students along with an exceptional standard of teaching and learning. My daughter was welcomed warmly when she first began with RSDS and I was instantly impressed with the rigour of the instruction. The improvement in my daughter's dance skills has been excellent.
