Plié, Groove’n’Shuffle opened in 1998 by Vicki Clare, and has since become the leading performing arts centre on the northern side of Sydney. Plié prides itself on offering professional and caring staff, a wide variety of subjects and affordable rates. Plié has seven purpose built dance studios, including a sprung studio for cheerleading & gymnastics at Cromer, three fully equipped studios in North Sydney and two fully equipped studios in St Ives. New in 2012 was the inclusion of our own theatrette on site at Cromer, for our students to perform regularly in a professional setting.
All students perform twice annually, at our mid-year ‘Concert’ and our end-of-year ‘Christmas Concert’. Talented students have the opportunity to be invited to join one of our prestigious stage classes who compete successfully at eisteddfods around Sydney. Our advanced students are cheerleaders for the Manly United FC.
Plié has a friendly and fun atmosphere, with classes to offer for both serious dancers, or for those who want to participate for fitness and enjoyment. There is something for everyone! Plié is most famous for it's community feeling- students and parents enjoy friendships and form a strong support network- such important elements to encourage sportsmanship amongst our dancers, and create a sense of belonging.
Students from Plié have gone on to perform at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, have been accepted into NIDA & WAUPA, been finalists on 'The Voice Kids' & 'X Factor', been awarded with Global Dance Convention scholarships for ten years consecutively, have won countless eisteddfods, performed at Disneyland California, in video clips, many gala events, have appeared as soloists at the Schools Spectacular, performed in professional productions of 'Pirates of Penzance', 'West Side Story', 'Sound Of Music' 'Crazy For You', 'The King And I', 'Mary Poppins', 'The Gruffalo', have earned National Titles in Cheer & Dance, and have even become dance teachers themselves!
