The Dance School

 

2019 is going to be a massive year at Davin GJ as we celebrate our 20TH YEAR! The Davin Griffiths-Jones School of Performing Arts has become one of Sydneys Premier Performing Arts Studios. The school opened in 2000 under the direction of well-known performer Davin Griffiths-Jones.The school is one of the few in Australia that focuses on Multi Skilled Training in Dance, Vocal and Acting to give our students a much broader range of opportunities once they turn professional. This has given the school a solid reputation and is now recognised for giving students all round training. Davin GJ also welcomes students that love to dance for a hobby and exercise.We have 2 studios operating, one in Winston Hills and Lane Cove. Davin GJ opened a 2nd school in North Ryde in 2005 to cater for the students in that area which is now located in bigger premises in Lane Cove West. We love to welcome new students, all you need to do is fill in the below contact form and we will get back to you.
