ABOUT US

At The Secret Garden of Dance, we believe there’s a better way to teach. Where a student is offered insightful and constructive feedback and their lessons are always personalised. We’re obsessively passionate about it, and our mission is to help our students achieve their goals.

Don’t worry – we’re not only drill sergeants, we do love to make our classes fun and light-hearted and we have a wonderful social community that’s inviting and friendly

Please call or email us anytime to discuss your goals and we look forward to sharing our love and knowledge of dance with you soon.

COMPLIMENTARY LESSON

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.

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. 

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.

GOOGLE REVIEWS

  • 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 ?

    Sanu is one of the most passionate, knowledgeable and genuine teachers/human beings that you will come across. Highly recommended!

    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.

    When I first started taking classes at The Secret Garden of Dance I had already been dancing for about two years. But taking classes with Sanushka marked such a turning point in my dancing journey. Sanushka is not only a great dancer, he is also an amazing teacher. He found completely new ways to fix some of my issues and gave me invaluable feedback, which really allowed me to take my dancing to the next level. Beyond his teaching methodology, I also really enjoyed how much I learned about the history and culture of each dance. As someone who loves history, I always leave the classes feeling intellectually stimulated and with a deep sense of respect for these amazing cultures! Looking forward to continuing learning there! Highly recommend it to anyone 🙂

  • I tried learning salsa on and off for years and made very little progress to be able to dance socially. Salsa music sound like noise, and whatever I learn in class don’t stick. Until I met Sanushka; he broke the art down to a science for my analytical brain. The rest is history, I’m now a salsa social dancing superstar; and the girls can’t get enough of me. Just kidding LOL. Still a beginner but with new found enthusiasm to improve.

    Amy, Simon and Caroline did an amazing job helping us with our first dance. They were so friendly, helpful and professional. We had zero dance experience and they explained music/dance concepts so well. Especially want to thank Amy for her encouragement, patience and her warm and bubbly nature. We had lots of fun!

    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.

    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!
