Bec Seach

 I highly recommend SJ dance my shy little 3 little old started and has come along in leaps and bounds. Sam really cares about each and every one of her students and really makes sure that queries, comments and questions are listened to. The high level of training is so evident in all of the students. I also love how all the older girls look out for my tiny dancer it feels like one big family at SJ dance. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else


Rhiannon Holmnas

My daughter has been attending SJ for 4 years and loves it!


It is her 2nd home and a place where she has excelled in her dance and thrived from the attention, care and support from all of her teachers.


Sam Howcroft has helped shape my daughter into the soloist she is and we appreciate all she has done for her.


Highly recommend SJ Dance Studio to anyone wanting a fun dance environment for their child.


Kind regards,



Skye O'sullivan

Owner Samantha and her amazing team have created a dance environment for all dancers. From beginners to elite performance students, tiny tots to seniors they have it all. If you are a beginner the staff and students will always make sure you fit in, and if you're at an elite level they provide many opportunities for growth. I also like that Sam thinks of all aspects of her student's needs from performance levels, mental health and wellbeing to just generally being a kid and having a laugh and some fun. We love SJ Dance.
