Welcome to MAPA Australia  

Melbourne Academy of Performing Arts (MAPA) supports, nurtures & inspires dancers of all ages & levels to become the best versions of themselves they possibly can be. MAPA is a home for all dancers to be creative, expressive and develop their talents and passions. Whether aiming for a career in the performing arts industry of simply dancing for enjoyment, we strive to teach the next generation the essence of working hard to achieve their goals. Our vision is for everyone to feel confident, proud & rewarded by their own achievements so they can take these skills into life. 

Skills learnt here at MAPA will not only have the potential to prepare students for careers in dance but will stand them in great stead to excel in all areas of their academic education. Not only do we provide all styles of Dance Classes and Performing Arts as well, including: Pre-school Dance, Classical Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap, Street Tap, Lyrical Jazz, Contemporary, Singing and Drama.
