WELCOME TO SUPERARTS ACADEMY
We operate a unique model. We use our members’ fees to fund students and support their families facing financial challenges. We like to refer to this as turning ‘fees into hope and opportunity’. We’re a not-for-dividend company – reinvesting the majority of our profits back into our social mission. With no shareholders to answer to we’re free to dedicate ourselves to the task of promoting the well-being of all children.

3. A CHAIR ROUTINE FOR OUR ELDERS
Dear Parents & Students,
We are hugely proud of all of our amazing students and extremely grateful to all of the parents and families who have supported us throughout the years, and particularly during the last few trying months. You have shown incredible patience and resilience as we have navigated Covid-19 and everything it has thrown at us.
Together we transitioned to the world of online dance classes where we have danced in kitchens, living rooms and even gardens, managing a grand total of 12 weeks on Zoom and covering over 70 classes!
And it doesn’t stop there, many of you showed your support for each other and Superarts with our #SuperartsStayTogether challenges and activities on Instagram. We hope this brought you some comfort, joy and most importantly kept you dancing during the lockdown.
The August workshop was fantastic to see so many of you and thank you to all the attendees who worked so hard.
It is the positive energy and mindset of our students and parents that helps to make Superarts special and truly unique, so once again please accept our greatest thanks.
LOTS OF LOVE FROM THE SUPERARTS TEAM
TESTIMONIAL: DEAN LEE - FORMER STUDENT
CHOREOGRAPHER FOR X FACTOR, JANET JACKSON, KYLIE MINOGUE, LEONA LEWIS, AND MANY MORE.........
"Superarts was never just a dance school, it was a place to escape from all that was wrong and discover all that I wanted to become. It was a building full of talent that was being sculpted and nourished to allow these performers to live out their dreams in all corners of the industry.
Irene and Susan were instrumental in giving me the best possible foundation to go onto the next level. They give opportunities that fill you with first-hand knowledge of the industry to make you as prepared as possible.
Superarts will always be a home and a special place to help young talent discover what they are capable of across multiple fields. To me, personally, they were so generous with the care, attention, opportunities and training, that without them, or the school as that crucial starting block, I may never have gone on to do all that I've managed to achieve".
