About North Sydney's Favourite Studio!

ProgressDNA officially opened it's doors in 2022, and has been providing a safe, supportive and exciting place for performing arts training ever since! With state-of-the art studios and over 8 styles on offer, we're your go-to local dance family!

Our focus is Dance Training with a Difference - with a commitment to creating a family full of happy, healthy kids who are also fierce performers.

With recreational and elite classes available, every dancer is empowered to be exactly who they want to be - whether they're just looking for a fun way to get moving, or keen to work hard towards exams, competitions and careers, each and every ProgressDNA Dancer is a valued, celebrated member of our dance family!

Why Choose Progress?

Because our dancers aren't 'just dancers' to us. Our work doesn't finish when we send your dancer home after class. We know that in our studios we have a group of kids who have the opportunity to shape the world as the lawyers, doctors, artists, authors, performers, scientists and everything else of tomorrow.

And we intend to prepare them for whichever path they choose.

Our dancers perform at least twice a year, plus regularly to their classmates, to help develop their confidence and performance skills - amazing for public speaking!

Group classes encourage dancers to understand teamwork and the importance for showing up for your crew.

Our dancers are encouraged to set goals and are taught to understand the benefits of hard work. They learn to dive head-first into things that are challenging to achieve their goals.

We celebrate our dancers and teach them to celebrate their wins, too - so they'll always know their own value and be the first to cheer for their friends, too!


Here at ProgressDNA, we’re all about Dance training with a difference; our priority is creating happy kids who are ALSO fierce performers - allowing them to take their newfound confidence, talent and life skills anywhere they choose!

We do this by creating safe spaces and opportunities for our dancers, inspiring dancers to be the best version of themselves and giving them all of the tools they need to see their own PROGRESS.


Our vision is to create a world where everyone can access the magic of dance. We have witnessed first hand how dance can build character, confidence and friendships. This beautiful, enriching sport is an incredible tool to teach body awareness, self-discipline and teamwork.

Through our service of teaching dance, we strive to provide exceptional coaching and leadership to our students. While striving to instill the importance of etiquette and manners, we also focus on good self-esteem and positive body image.

In addition, we want being a ‘Dance Parent' to be easy and enjoyable! You’ll find our admin team to be easy to communicate with and we won’t hit you with surprise fees or requests to sew costumes.
