Discover Bev Palmer Performing Arts

Bev Palmer Performing Arts is one of the leading dance institutions in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. 

At our school, we aim to encourage a widespread love of movement and dance, and to teach to the highest standards.

Leading Melbourne Dance Studio Since 1962

Bev Palmer Performing Arts has evolved from a long history of more than 55 years in Melbourne’s theatrical dance scene. Building on expertise in theatrical tap, jazz and classical styles, BPPA now offers a complete performing arts program of classes for students at all levels and all ages.

Whether your child is aiming for a professional career or wanting to develop their skills as a dancer and take opportunities to perform on stage, we have a class that’s suitable for them. Despite our extensive history, we always take a modern approach so our students are experiencing the best performing arts education possible. 

The teachers at Bev Palmer Performing Arts have a vast range of experience across disciplines. Our collective approach is to share our love of dance and performing while being supportive and encouraging.

What Our Clients Say

My children have experienced the highest quality of dance instruction at BPPA across all facets of dance. They have also had the unique opportunity to perform across Victoria and overseas. The teachers at BPPA are leaders in the industry and provide teaching of the highest professional standard while creating a supportive, nurturing environment that is welcoming, safe and caring for all students. 

My children have also had the privilege of being part of the BPPA junior teachers’ program. This has enabled them to learn another unique part of the industry which has positively impacted all aspects of their lives. I have seen my girls thrive not just in dance but in their self-confidence, personal respect and working as part of a team. BPPA is not just a dance school but a community that has given us lifelong memories and experiences for which we will always be grateful.
