DANCE Academy has been running for more than 30 years with studios in Kloof, Empangeni, Richards bay, Mtubatuba and Mtunzini.
Speaking to the Fever Michelle van der Merwe, owner of Dance Academy Kloof, said the Kloof branch was previously run by Hayley DeJager who has immigrated to New Zealand and put all her faith in her to continue the outstanding shows and performances.
“We teach the AIDT modern and hiphop syllabus as well as show classes, open classes, competitions and events with styles such as modern, jazz, contemporary, hiphop and cabaret,” she said.
“We have a very close dancing family with past and present students always coming to help and offer some new interesting choreography.”
She said that many of the students have gone one to further their dancing career either joining theatres of starting up their own classes. “Diana Ocholla, past pupil, has her own studio in Muizenburg, Kezia Ramsbottom performs for the Cape Town Waterfront Theatre school and one of our biggest fans and past pupil is a lead Choreographer for the Moulin Rouge in Paris.
“We have performed all over, modeling shows, casino shows, festivals and events. Performed at Sibaya and Wild Coast Casino. And this month we will be filming a music video with an up and coming female South African artist.”
Dance Academy are open to all ages young and not so young with any level or no level of dancing.
