Turning Pointe of Melbourne opened its doors in September 2002.


Our mission is to provide dancers with a quality education in dance while instilling a love for art of dance.


It is our philosophy and commitment to educate all students, consistent with their abilities and goals. This education will contribute to a sense of personal worth, independence, emotional maturity, and self-confidence.

Over the past 15 years Turning Pointe has been not only a 2nd home to hundreds of children, but also has served as a versatile and award-winning family studio.

Turning Pointe strives to create a professional dance studio committed to providing a fun, safe, & positive family-oriented dance environment conducive to learning appropriate dance technique, training, and instruction in various styles and disciplines.


Our professional staff, beautiful facility, competitive rates, and wide array of classes make us THE studio to choose for your dance instruction needs.


We offer classes for ages 3 to adult in ballet, pointe, jazz, street jazz, tap, lyrical, modern, contemporary, acrobatics, musical theater and hip-hop dance.


For the more serious dancer, our school offers performance and competition opportunities. Our dancers have won many regional awards, as well as being recognized for their talent with scholarships and internships around the United States. Our instructors are dedicated to providing a well-rounded dance instructive curriculum and focus on adhering to the highest standards to help students reach their ultimate potential. They not only teach the technique of each step, but the art of movement. They are enthusiastic and passionate about what they do and are eager to pass along to each student the true love of dance. We are devoted to equal treatment of and care for all students regardless of age or level of proficiency. We pride ourselves in including the family in all aspects of moving our studio forward toward our vision.

At the heart of these values is our studio owner/director
