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 from The Secret Garden of Dance has a tireless, unwavering love, commitment and passion for what he does. A brilliant dancer, and a master of teachers. He possesses a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the art of dance. I’ve witnessed him transform students with no prior dance experience within minimal time, to coaching high end professional dancers seeking new heights with their dancing. This dance studio is none like any other here in Melbourne. With highly trained skilled staff, I find that I am challenged each week after every session. Thanks Sanu for sharing your time generously in our coaching sessions and in every class I’ve attended. An essential place for dancers, whether you’re just starting out, or at intermediate to advanced level. I’d highly recommend this studio for anyone who is passionate and determined to learn! 🙂

    I am loving my dance classes at Secret Garden of Dance. So glad I stumbled across your dance studio 18 months ago. Sanushka’s philosophy and unique teaching methods are fantastic. So nurturing and patient for those of us that take a bit longer to get it, so informative and interesting on background of dances, such great staff Caroline & Simon helping instruct and making everyone feel welcome (though I did start off with Peter when you were away who was great). I love the community feel of all that come to classes at the studio and feel like I belong. Classes are such a great workout and I hate when I need to miss a class. Looking forward to continuing and me improving. Thank you so much. ?

    Looking for a dance school and choreographer for our wedding dance, we had been highly recommended The Secret Garden of Dance by a number of people. From our first lesson with Sanu, his experience and passion for dance and teaching were evident. We were always comfortable and every lesson was enjoyable. Sanu, Caroline and the team really invested a lot in our learning, and were so generous with their time and advice - they really cared about our performance as much as we did. And it paid off! The dance was the highlight of the wedding, our guests couldn't stop talking about it! We’re so grateful, we can’t recommend The Secret Garden of Dance highly enough!

    A massive thank-you to both Caroline & Steph at Secret Garden School of Dance! We had never danced before, so they had a challenge ahead of them. I wanted to do a fast-paced, upbeat song (shut up and dance with me), and they were absolutely fine to match it to our skill level. In just seven lessons, they hard us spinning, lifting, dipping and twirling! The moment of doing this dance in front of our family and friends will live rent-free in my head forever. It was just so special! As a bonus, we had so many compliments on it!

  • Over the past four or five years, I've attended many workshops hosted by Sanushka and his professional team of instructors. Every single time I've come away as a better dancer. He's given me new ways of moving to and thinking about the music. Sadly, I live too far away for weekly lessons because they'd certainly be worth it. If you're serious about being a better dancer, then The Secret Garden of Dance is for you.

    I began my journey with Secret Garden of Dance during Melbourne's 2020 lock-down. With no previous dance experience, I was determined to learn Michael Jackson's Dangerous performance. Sanu's passion for teaching (and MJ) allowed me to exceed my initial expectations (see our video on youtube). Sanu and Caroline's commitment and passion for dance fosters a warm environment for their students to realize their potential. I highly recommend Secret Garden of Dance for those who want try something new, those who are fans of MJ or Afro-Cuban/Salsa.

    Very professional, good communication. Has the ability to very concisely identify and correct faults to make his students look like amazing dancers in a remarkably short period of time.

    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 ?
