The National College of Dance is located in Newcastle NSW, at the corner of Lloyd and Young Streets, Lambton. Our facilities are purpose built for dance with both the College and Junior Academy co-located. This creates a vibrant environment where students of all levels are integrated on the one site fostering wonderful engagement between senior and junior students. The Junior Academy offers after school classes in classical ballet, contemporary, jazz dance, acro, body conditioning, and tiny tots dance. We also provide affiliated classes and workshops for adults keen to learn dance for the first time or to continue training, stay fit and have fun.
We have four large, professional studios and two small studios. All studios are fully air-conditioned and feature sprung wooden floors with tarkett covering, ballet barres and floor-to-ceiling mirrors. All studios are equipped with variable-speed sound systems with the larger studios each incorporating a piano. Our in-house pianist regularly accompanies classes adding the professional element and experience to our ballet students.
The building includes separate male and female bathrooms and shower facilities, change rooms, student lockers, a gym and a student kitchen. The building has several undercover onsite parking spaces, offers ample off street parking, and is equipped with back-to-base 24 hour security monitoring. Our facilities also include a full reception and waiting area, two main administrative offices and staff kitchen. Venue Hire is available on request.
Located up upstairs, Studio 1 and 2 are two of our larger studios. Light and airy with high ceilings and light gray tarkett floors, these studios have their own change rooms and waiting area.
