Plié, Groove’n’Shuffle opened in 1997 by Vicki Clare and has since become the leading performing arts centre on the northern side of Sydney. Plié prides itself on offering professional and caring staff, a wide variety of subjects and affordable rates. In 2019, Plié was recognised as the Most Outstanding Performing Arts Business in Australia at the Australian Small Business Champion Awards at Star City.
All students perform twice annually, at our mid-year ‘Concert’ and our end-of-year ‘Concert’. Plié is a performance-focused studio. Our goal is to offer as many performance opportunities for our students as possible. Plié provides the essential stepping stones students need to prepare for the professional world of entertainment. No other local dance school can match Plié’s commitment to performance opportunities in which all students are encouraged to participate (although entirely optional).
Plié has a friendly and fun atmosphere, with classes to offer for both serious dancers, or for those who want to participate for fitness and enjoyment. There is something for everyone! Plié is most famous for our community feeling- students and parents enjoy friendships and form a strong support network- such important elements to encourage sportsmanship amongst our dancers and create a sense of belonging. Students should not only reach their personal best in dance but also benefit from increased confidence and social skills.
Plié staff share a commitment to training students to have a solid technique as well as encouraging performance skills and creating a happy & safe learning space. Our staff all foster inclusion, teamwork, positivity, and encourage a supportive environment for all our students. Our teachers are all qualified professionals, who inspire our students on a daily basis. Our teachers are incredible role models in dance & life for our lucky Plié kids. All staff hold current Working With Children Checks.
