ABOUT 

Capital Dance Studios in a locally owned and run dance school that was established in 1999, by Michelle Chapman.

Michelle Chapman successfully ran the school for 13 years before handing it over in 2012 to Amy Truong and Cleo Ludski, her students of over 20 years and teachers for over 10.

At CDS we pride ourselves in the ability to provide a safe a supportive learning environment for our students and teachers. Our motto 'For the love of it...' and that is just what we do.

We offer classes from 12 months old to adults in styles; Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Contemporary, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Acro and commercial Heels.

 

For all students and young adults wanting to take their dancing to a competitive level we also offer competition troupes from ages 7 years to 25 years. 

Our Directors Amy and Cleo have been good friends for over 25 years and have had the honour of running CDS for 10 years. They are the Ying to each others Yang, their love of dance and teaching others is a force to be reckoned with. 

Both with ample experience in over 16 years of teaching all levels and ages; between them they are trained in jazz, hip hop, contemporary, lyrical, ballet, heels, fitness, aerial sports and competition techniques. 

Amy and Cleo strive to be nurturing and fun hearted, focusing on the values of family, dedication and loyalty to each other.

We sadly say goodbye to one part of the dynamic duo in 2022, as Cleo Ludski says good luck and goodbye...for now ;), as she ventures into the new phase of her life as she Jumped at the opportunity to be posted overseas for 3 years. 

We love you Cleo Ludski, forever and ever! We wish nothing but the best for you in your new travels and even though we all know you'll shine in your new adventure, we will miss you every day <3.
