About Us

A love of dance and a desire to share that enjoyment with children and young adults was the foundation used by Alison Reilly in establishing Reilly Dance Academy in 1991.  

Today, Reilly Dance Academy welcomes students into a family studio, where they are encouraged and nurtured to achieve their own potential, whilst offering challenges, pathways and opportunities. 

At RDA we love and live by the motto: 

“If you’re not dancing, you’re wasting your feet!” 

We have a class for everyone at RDA…from beginner to advanced.  A structure is in place to provide progression through the grades and levels to allow students to grow and advance.  We also have once a week classes for those students starting dance for fun!  

“Learning dance is wonderful for children even if they never become professional.  It’s wonderful because it teaches the life skills of self discipline, respect for others, grace and manners” – Alison Reilly, Principal
