The first step is to book in a complimentary and obligation-free consultation. You’ll be looked after by one of our highly trained and friendly teachers, who will inform you of all the additional services we have to offer.

2

Each couple is different, so it’s important for us to discuss your specific ideas in detail and learn about what you’re both hoping to achieve. This will help us determine which style of dance and choreography will best suit you. 

3

During this free one hour dance lesson, we’ll also teach you some basic steps to your choice of song, which will help you get a sense of what your dance could look and feel like.

Finally to finish your consultation, we can give you feedback and advice with regards to pricing, packages, how many lessons you may require and to make a booking if you wish.

  • Sanushka is our dance guru! I knew the moment that I met him that Sanushka was a gifted teacher who skillfully knows how to get the best from his students. He puts you at ease immediately and is able to hone in to the exact detail that will make all the difference. He runs his studio with integrity and only employs and trains only the best teachers. I have been to many dance studios in Melbourne and The Secret Garden stands out. It is a welcoming space and a comfortable size that prevents the classes from ever being too large. I always feel welcome when I visit. Thanks Sanushka and Caroline for being such amazing mentors and supporters of Shepparton Salsa and bringing your talent to Shepparton, and jumping on board with all of my ideas!

    As a commercial style dancer growing up I have always felt like home in dance studio set up with mirros and space for correction of posture and to physically see what needs improving. The Secret Garden Of Dance is a traditional dance studio set up and the classes are also held this way, with the teachers focus on the style, culture and technique of the dance. There is the opportunity for a social dance environment throughout the class, however the emphasis is on improving your individual ability as a dancer in the style, which personally I love. Sanushka's passion for dance shines through and I love his analogies focussing on developing each student into their own creative expression as a dancer in the style chosen to learn. It is a welcoming environment with attention placed on learning. If you're wanting to delve into learning about culture, art through dance and your technique, here you'll find it.

    From the very beginning of our wedding planning journey, we knew that our first dance was something we really wanted to put time and effort towards. Sanushka and the team at The Secret Garden of Dance were incredible in always leading with our vision and story in creating something really special for us. Sanushka has a passion for both dance and teaching, meaning we didn’t just learn choreography, we got to try out different styles of dance, watch the instructors demonstrate their ideas and really workshop everything as a team. Our lessons were truly an unexpected highlight of the wedding planning process! We always looked forward to our time at the studio as it gave us an opportunity to learn something new together as well as to slow down and focus on each other, which often gets lost amidst the rush of planning a wedding. Our first dance was such a dream and Sanushka went above and beyond to make sure that on the big day, we felt confident to truly enjoy that moment in front of all of our loved ones.

    My new hubby & I can’t recommend the team at The Secret Garden of Dance highly enough! The studio is a hidden gem and a pleasure to learn in. Over 2 months, Caroline took us from complete beginners to confident, enthusiastic performers for our first dance on our wedding night. We couldn’t have asked for a more patient, committed teacher. From the very first meeting, where Caroline took the time to get to know us and our somewhat alternative vision for our dance, to developing an awesome choreography that blew our friends and family away, the wedding dance was a clear highlight and an unforgettable element of the whole day. We are SO glad we decided to take lessons, and put in the hours of practice, and we are grateful for the contributions of the whole team, who took the time to watch us rehearse and share their tips to elevate our performance. Can’t wait to return to the studio to take more classes! Couples looking to learn a wedding dance, look no further ?

  • We had a great experience at The Secret Garden of Dance. Initially super anxious about our wedding dance, Caroline's patience and fantastic teaching skills transformed us into confident dancers. Her step-by-step guidance and encouraging approach made the learning process fun too. On our wedding day our the dance went off without a hitch, earning us tonnes of compliments from our guests. We're grateful to The Secret Garden of Dance and especially Caroline for turning our anxiety into dance floor magic. If you're seeking a top-notch dance studio with a friendly atmosphere and exceptional instructors, this is the dance studio to go with!

    The instructors here are very passionate about the style they teach. It feels like they want to train people to be good dancers and take the artform forward, rather than just running a dance school. A good student-teacher ratio and modest fee structure made this studio my favourite among many others that I have already attended in the area.

    Learning to Dance at The Secret Garden of Dance was the best part of wedding preparations. My husband and I had so much fun and it was a special part of our wedding day. A big thanks to Caroline for being such an amazing teacher and making us feel comfortable as we learned to dance.
