‘Radiance Academy Toowoomba is a dance school where all dancers are welcomed and celebrated’

More than dance lessons… a dance studio with a difference!

Led by Studio Director, Sally Andrew the academy was founded in 2015, where Radiance Academy is a dance studio in the bustling regional town of Toowoomba.

Being an industry leader in the region, the school sets the barre high for all things dance.

Tuition is inclusive, progressive, convenient and family focused with one of the world’s fastest growing syllabus of dance to 600+ students from 18 months of age to 82 years. The studio offers high level dance tuition in classical ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, acrobatics, contemporary and much more.

Sally began dancing at the age of four and has learnt many styles including contemporary, jazz, tap, Latin American, modern, character and of course ballet. She studied the Ceccetti Method of ballet before moving over to Beth Baudistel’s studio.

Subsequently, Sally went on to be examined in the Royal Academy of Dancing syllabus up to major’s level.  Sally then travelled to Melbourne to the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet to complete her teacher training in the Vagaonova Method of classical ballet.

She has also completed her teacher training in the Living Dance Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary Syllabus.  In May 2017 Sally completed her study in Dance Teaching and Management and became an Affiliate teacher with the Australian Teachers of Dance.

In August 2017 Sally completed further examinations with the ATOD to become an Associate. In February 2018 Sally trained at the Queensland Ballet with Parkinsons Australia to begin her pilot Dance for Parkinsons classes in Toowoomba.

In April 2018 Sally became an accredited Acrobatic Arts teacher.  In 2019 she also completed her TAE so that she can facilitate students doing their Certificate III nationally recognised qualification through the studio.

Sally also recently completed her Diploma of Dance Teaching and Management with the Australian Teachers of Dancing. Sally has been teaching dance since 1995 when she opened and operated a ballet school part-time.
