Our Mission is to be at the forefront of the dance world, providing the best dance training within an environment that stimulates creativity and artistry, and allows individual talent to grow.


Melbourne Dance Theatre – School of Excellence started as the Sierra Dance Centerpoint (Rosanna) in 1999, changing its name in to reflect the merging of new teaching techniques and technologies practised within the Contemporary Ballet education.


We are focused to fulfil the needs of students who would like to take dance seriously while continuing their academic education at the institution of their choice.


Here at MDT we offer programs in Classical Ballet for girls and boys under the Imperial Russian Academy of Ballet (Vaganova) Method together with classes in Pointe, Variations/Repertoire and Pas de Deux, Male Technique, Contemporary, Character and Limber/Pilates, Jazz, Hip Hop, Funk, Tap, Musical Theatre, Singing, VET Dance, Acrobatics, Drama & Production and also including full-time nationally accredited training.


MDT-SOE programs are designed to fit the needs of every student from basic to advanced levels of training. The Centre’s association with dance schools in Europe & New York allows students to develop their skills to a broader and higher level.


Whether your child’s dance future is local or international, Melbourne Dance Theatre can fulfil your needs.
