Action Dance Academy offers their families a community that seeks to nurture the students in a positive and encouraging environment with the goal to offer quality tuition and develop a love of dance.

We not only offer an extensive range of dance and performing arts tuition across a wide range of classes for all ages and levels, but seek to support each dancer to reach their full potential.  We offer professional training and a 'second home' for your child where they can be supported, grow and flourish as a dancer.

Action Dance Academy was established in 1995 by Director, Jodie Williams and has built a reputation for quality dance tuition and professional service.  In 2008 we launched our successful Berowra studio branch.  Word of mouth and recommendation is testament to the academy's success!

As the leading dance studio in the Hornsby Shire our success is attributed to our successful concert productions, professional & caring teaching staff, integral and supportive office team, and the wonderful family atmosphere.  

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop each student to reach their full potential in dance whilst looking after the well being of each performer and preserving the innocence of the child. We believe dancing creates self-confidence and life long memories.


We have been part of Action Dance Academy for the last 12 years. Our girls have been nurtured and encouraged to enjoy their dance and develop their skills in all genre’s. The teachers provide amazing opportunity with quality choreography attributing to excellent results at Eisteddfods. The end of year concert’s are a wonderful showcase of the hard work and dedication from students and staff.

The class captures the girls attention and was a real fun atmosphere and is no wonder Jasmine is so eager to go to Dance each week, plus she comes out with a big smile on her face, What more could we ask.

Recommending Action Dance to anyone is something I can do with great pride and confidence. I have 2 girls who have been part of the Action family for the last 5 years and have loved every single minute. Throughout this time I have seen them develop strong technique, form beautiful friendships and continue to grow in their confidence and love of dance. Miss Jodie and all the Action teachers are so creative and dedicated - it is clear they love what they do. Students are supported, challenged and encouraged to develop at their own pace. The end of year concert is nothing short of spectacular and something we all look forward to every year. I would without hesitation recommend Action Dance to anyone looking for a professional, creative and nurturing dance school.

Starting high school has been challenging for Fen so dance has been more important than ever for her - so a big thank you for the stability and confidence it brings her and the professionalism and kindness of the teachers.
