Kind words from our dance family….

I have been dancing at VCM for 7 years now and have enjoyed every single minute of it from the prepared examinations to our beautiful recitals at the end of the year, which dear Aunty Vic and Aunty Roz put together for us. This academy is gorgeous inside and out. So much time and effort is put into the studio itself to ensure we are getting the most out of our dancing experience. All of the students at VCM are so welcoming and friendly, I would happily call everyone associated with this academy my family. Aunty Vicki and Aunty Roz have taught me everything I know about the art of dance and it has made me the person I am today. Every class at VCM is a pleasure and I couldn’t be happier than I am here.

The teachers are amazing. My daughter loves dancing and I think her teachers are her heroes. Dancing has been a wonderful outlet for her and she’s learning great skills that transfer into other areas of her life. Like listening and respect and hard work.ms.

Beautiful studios, wonderful atmosphere and dedicated teachers make this academy one of the best in Auckland. With a long history of great results, perfect for those looking for quality training with a range of events during the year – with equal focus on both performance and exams.
