Our Studios

MAPA has grown from a single dance studio into a flourishing multifaceted performing arts academy.

Our vibrant home in Spotswood, Melbourne, offers plenty of inspiring and functional spaces for fulfilling creative potential. Our interiors have been thoughtfully styled to give students a taste of life as a professional performing artist. We’re proud of the environment we’ve created and the careers that have prospered as part of our talented MAPA family.
