pure positive dance
Woolgoolga Dance Studio (WDS) was owned and directed by Rebecca Ross for 16 years! We pay homage and tribute to the incredible work both she and all Instructors of WDS did for the community... And recognise the incredible talent of the previous generations of WDS alumni that paved the way for the current and future students of WPAS.
Woolgoolga Dance Studio - an incredible community dance studio that has been established for the last 30 years. Originally created as a Parent's Co-Op to run a dance studio for the Woolgoolga Community, WDS then passed through the hands of the inspiring Rebecca Ross, now to new owner Jade Naidu we have so many exciting and inspiring stories to share with you all! One of our teachers who you might know - Miss Carol Young is still here teaching for us since we evolved into a Performing Arts Studio!
Many WDS students are now teachers at WPAS and we are proud to continue instilling the principles and values of what WDS beholds. We cherish our history at WPAS, and hold the legacy of WDS and it's students to the highest regard!
We are always welcoming dancers back to the studios to check out how the studio has grown and changed, our doors are always open!
