About Us

Anna Lee School of Dance is one of the premiere dance schools in the greater Christchurch area.

With studios in Papanui, Sumner, Ferrymead, Halswell and the Selwyn District (Ladbrooks and Lincoln), students have the opportunity to learn dance styles including ballet, jazz, hip hop and contemporary.

The dance school prides itself in providing a high standard of technical teaching that enables students to sit exams and medal tests if they wish. Anna Lee School of Dance has a proven history of students excelling with superb exam, medal and competition results.

Past pupils from the school have gone on to train full time and dance, in both New Zealand and abroad, as well as current students training at the New Zealand School of Dance in their Junior Associate Program.

Dance classes are tailored for pre-schoolers through to advanced students. The fun and supportive environment with its’ emphasis on enjoyment ensures students feel comfortable as they learn dance movements.  The school caters for all levels of commitment. We acknowledge and support all the different reasons our students choose to dance and we strive to provide classes that will cater for every student’s needs, whether it be for fitness and fun, or in the hope of entering into a career in dance.

Benefits for students participating in regular dance sessions include increased confidence and self-esteem. Through dance our students will subconsciously learn many skills that will be carried in to adulthood such as improved concentration and listening skills, attention to detail, stickability, discipline and commitment. Dance will develop and improve musicality, artistry and imagination, and posture and coordination.

We are proud to be able to provide an enjoyable, safe and supportive environment in which to help our students reach their maximum potential.

We are lucky to have our purpose built studios in Sawyers Arms Road as well as great spacious halls in Halswell, Ladbrooks, and Sumner/Ferrymead.
