Celebrating 25 successful years of successful operation, Tania’s Strictly Dancing was established in 1994 in Baulkham Hills. Originally the school began out of Tania’s genuine desire to fulfil a lifelong ambition to give children an opportunity to experience the benefits and enjoyment the performing arts had given her as a young student.
Now called ’The Stage Door Performing Arts’, the school has a long term reputation for providing quality, all inclusive dance education in a positive and friendly environment. There are many student who have become teachers and some who now have their own children enrolled at the school. TSD operates from purpose built locations in Bella Vista/Norwest and Winston Hills. All locations offer spacious studio room, air conditioning, clean amenities and ample parking.
The students are offered the opportunity to compete in extensive local and national eisteddfod dance competition programs.
Studio Dance Tours have been organised for students to perform in Disneyland and Universal Studios in Orlando Florida, Tokyo and Hong Kong. The opportunity to see Broadway shows and attend workshops at the famous Broadway Dance Centre in New York have also provided students with unforgettable memories. This adds to an already wonderful experience for all those who are part of the TSD Family.

Tania and her school have achieved recognition from the Western Sydney Awards of Business Excellence run by the Chamber of Commerce. Tania is driven by the satisfaction of seeing young students learning to dance whilst enhancing their self confidence, self belief, general health, social skills and their achievements.
The focus of the teacher training program is to ensure the high standard of tuition offered is consistent with Tania’s commitment to parents and students. Providing an environment for students to learn and enjoy their dancing is an expectation embedded in the training of all staff and is reflected in the high retention rate of the TSD family.
