A little history of our Principal, Zoe Steele. In 2006, Dancespace383 was established in the Illawarra, Miss Zoe was invited to bring some new and exciting dance classes into the Ballroom & Latin studio (formally Reeves Dance Academy). She took on this challenge with open arms and an optimistic mind and set up dance classes for all ages in Jazz, Contemporary and Hip-Hop. Over the past 18 years, Zoe successfully established her very own dance studio in the Illawarra, a dream of hers from a very young age! Under her guidance, she has a multitude of achievements to date, including past students moving into full-time performing arts contracts and teaching roles, excellent Eisteddfod and Examination results, professional dance showcases and local performances.
In 2015, new faces joined her teaching team in order to bring new inspiration, passion and drive into the studio. This proved as a positive addition among the students and they have all been encouraged to reach new goals in their dance education. Her team has grown to 10 faculty members coupled with 11 student teachers – a beautiful reflection of the many opportunities provided at EVOLVE.
Miss Zoe is currently the Dance Director of Southern Stars – The Arena Spectacular and a local High School PDHPE teacher. Her passion for community and engagement is evident and the success of EVOLVE PERFORMANCE STUDIOS is a testament to her ongoing legacy of improving the health and performing arts of young people in the Illawarra.
The future is exciting and we are thrilled you have joined us on this evolution!
