POSE PA where dreams come alive!


POSE PA established in 2005

POSE Performing Arts was founded in 2005. After a successful professional career and many years of teaching for other schools, Miss Fiona opened the doors… well, hired a few halls in Matraville, Maroubra and Chifley! Armed with a stereo and herself, she advertised classes and the rest was history. The first concert only had 34 students performing – however, word travelled fast that POSE was the place to be and within two years POSE had grown to around 150 students. It was then that they found their first “home” of their own – a little factory in Bay St Botany and the growth continued to happen. Not just the number of students, but more teachers, and more talent!

In 2020 POSE moved to the beautiful new studio’s in Margate St. Over the past 16 years, POSE has grown to be the leading dance school in Botany and now offers classes in RAD Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Tap, Acrobatics and Musical Theatre. POSE is a community within itself and many of the current teachers are ex students! POSE has had success Nationally in competitions, had many ex students go on to professional careers and consistently achieves amazing results in RAD ballet exams.

POSE is a home away from home for the students, many starting at 2 or 3 years old and spending their childhood dancing. At POSE, it is not just dance that is being taught: Dance teaches discipline, teamwork, time management and of course life long friendships are made between the students, teachers and parents. We look forward to welcoming you to the POSE family.

POSE PA dance studio is newly renovated with fully air-conditioned spaces and is available for booking by external community groups. For more information for POSE PA Studio Dance Hire get in touch.

My daughters started dancing at Pose Performance Academy 10 years ago when they were 2 years old. They were extremely shy and timid. Over the last 10 years they have had many opportunities to perform in concerts and eisteddfods which has helped with their confidence. They have also travelled to Queensland and to America which was an amazing experience for our whole family. The girls were lucky enough to perform at Disneyland Anaheim in 2014 and in Disney World Orlando in 2017 with their dance friends and will be something they will always remember.

I am truly grateful for all of the opportunities Pose has given my girls and each year I see them become more confident with who they are as people and as performers.

We have been a part of the Pose family for seven years. My 4 daughters and one son have all gotten so much out of their time at PPA...developed their talents, made lifelong friends and been encouraged to be the best them they can be. Pose is more than just a dance studio...it's our home away from home!

As grandparents we are extremely grateful for the dancing and gymnastics skills you have taught our girls, but even more for the self confidence, discipline, team work, competitive edge and ambition they have learnt from you. A real bonus is the many fine friends they have made which has enriched their lives and created the path to ensure they become responsible members of the community and enjoy the many social activities that friendships develop.

We’ve been with Pose continually since 2004 when my youngest was just a tiny tot and I've watched both my daughters (now 18 and 15) blossom into beautiful dancers with solid technique. They’ve formed lasting friendships through Pose and have experienced the thrill of performing on stage with a great team. Fiona has fostered a love of dance in them that I’m sure will last a lifetime.

I wanted to say thank you for nurturing Katia’s passion for dance. She adores you and loves coming to Pose every week.

She doesn’t stop dancing around when she’s at home and she often tells me that she was born to dance. I thank you and all the teachers at Pose for mentoring and encouraging her. I can see that her technique has matured this year and I look forward to seeing her develop even further into a gorgeous dancer.

All three of my children have been a part of the PPA family through dance and drama over the last 8 years. I can't begin to explain how much they have gained from being a part of such a professional yet warm and caring organisation. They have loved being part of something so special and have grown in confidence through learning about commitment and camaraderie as well as dance and drama skills. We can't thank POSE enough for what they have done for our kids. You can't put a price on these kinds of childhood memories!!
