About VDSE

In 2023 VDSE will merge with OnBeat Dance Studios. Read a message from Miss Lauren HERE

At Vieira Dance School of Excellence, we are passionate about inspiring a love of dance in our students. Our purpose built studios are located upstairs in Weedon Close Belconnen, Canberra. With 2 studios in one convenient location, we are a small but busy and thriving school.

Our team of professionally qualified and highly skilled teachers delivers programs for children and adults to create a great foundation in dance and go on to pursue a career in dance if that is their goal.

We offer the RAD classical ballet syllabus and training in the Russian Vaganova method.

Expert private coaching is available to students desiring to dance competitively or improve their technique.

Our performance troupe competes regularly in local and interstate Eisteddfods and while our school is young, our past and present students are already enjoying amazing success.


We run fun holiday dance camps to provide students and their friends with the opportunity to stay active and dancing together over term breaks. From time to time we host intensive workshops with highly regarded visiting instructors in our studio.


Our annual concert provides all students with an opportunity to showcase their talents in a professional theatre setting, and is held in November or December at the Q Theatre.


Our small size means we can focus on each of our students as individuals. Our class sizes are small, so you can be confident your child will receive regular attention, feedback and encouragement. 


Our family friendly approach and welcoming atmosphere provides a positive environment for students of all ages and levels from our 2 year old's in Ready Set Dance to our dedicated vocational students in senior and adult classes.
