About Our Dance Studio
Caper School of Performing Arts is a leading force in Sydney’s Hills District, servicing areas including Castle Hill, Bella Vista, Norwest, Kellyville, Glenwood, Rouse Hill and Quakers Hill plus more! Children from two years old to teenagers can join a variety of classes and lessons including ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, acrobatics, modern contemporary, singing and acting.
Directors and sisters, Kate and Beth McDermott, established the school in January 2003 to offer premium tuition for students aged 3-18 years. In this short time, the school has taken the local dance, song and drama world by storm. Caper students have had outstanding success at national and local dance competitions and have achieved high results in examinations. No other local dance school can match Caper’s commitment to performance opportunities in which all students are encouraged to participate (although entirely optional).
The school’s name “Caper” means a playful leap, or form of movement – this defines the culture of Caper School of Performing Arts. Classes are held in a friendly, professional and nurturing environment and are guided by our strong teaching philosophy. All staff share a commitment to training students to have solid technique as well as encouraging performance skills –the cornerstones needed to create talented and happy students. Individual and team effort and achievement are encouraged through our formal and informal merit systems. At Caper, students should not only reach their personal best in dance, but also benefit from increased confidence and social skills.
Caper prides itself for offering the best of both worlds – whether you dance for fun and fitness or whether you are a budding professional - there are classes and opportunities to suit you! Come along to a free trial lesson and begin your journey into the world of performing arts.
