Performances and results speak for themselves This academy is next level.

ABDA was the best decision I ever made for my daughter - not only is she receiving world class tuition in ballet, contemporary, character and other complimentary dance subjects but she has found true community, friendship and nurturing support.

Amanda is such an inspiration, I’ve never meet a more vocational teacher and the level of investment and genuine care she and her staff afford their students is priceless.

Along with a complete love for dance, the healthy choices, mental well being, commitment and quality of work they have been able to foster in my child leaves me so grateful to have found this school!

I'm absolutely stunned at how much my daughter has improved already in such a short time at ABDA. And equally stunned by the quality of performances I've seen — the choreography, costuming, technique, control and professionalism of these young dancers across the board is pretty mind-blowing. Extremely happy and grateful that my daughter has a place in a school of this calibre.

This is a very professional and friendly ballet school. My daughter enjoys learning here and after learning one year, one of her goal is to become ballerina.

The end of year 2020 show is amazing. We respect all of the efforts that school teachers have contributed. Highly recommended to people who’d love to learn real ballet.

My daughter has attended the Amanda Bollinger Dance Academy for the previous 3 years; as a real Vaganova Ballerina, Amanda has brought a level of experience and professionalism to the Gold Coast that is unmatched in her field, and well evidenced in her outstanding ability to find international placements for her students.

Students not only learn to move and dance with grace, elegance, beautiful posture and poise, but also they acquire qualities that bring success and reward across the board, including, taking instruction, focus, discipline, perseverance and modesty.

I without reservation recommend this academy if you seek real ballet, it is one of the foremost considerations for our family to remain residing on the GC.

Our daughter absolutely enjoys her ballet classes. This is our 3rd year and looks like many more to come. A school where they take their classes seriously and the students love it. The results speak for themselves with the number of overseas placements for ABDA students. Highly recommend.

This is my daughter's 8th year at Amanda Bollinger Dance Academy. My child can't wait to get to classes every day. As if that isn't enough in and of itself, the stellar results produced by and the close-knit sense of community fostered by this academy speak for themselves. The best choice for dance on the Gold Coast.
Leanne S.
An amazing academy with wonderful staff. Lead by Amanda combining her first hand experience as a professional dancer and her knowledge of international companies and schools was instrumental in my son achieving his dreams. Jackson now dances with The Royal Ballet and is testimony of our belief that behind every good dancer is a great teacher.

Amanda Bollinger Dance Academy is by far one of the most outstanding ballet schools on the Gold Coast and I would go so far as to say in Australia.

If your child is considering becoming a professional ballet dancer, this is the school to be at. The results speak for themselves with numerous dancers being placed at schools overseas,

Not only that but for any young dancer it is a kind, caring community and one of the few dance schools where every child is treated equally no matter their ability. No child is ever front and centre, everyone is taught the best technique and treated as if they, too, could be the next big thing. An amazing school.
