A decade of empowering children through dance.


Phoenix Dance Studios was founded in 2013 by Candice Bandiera (BDE) and as of 2023 is run under the direction of Emily Foley (RAD RTS). Phoenix currently operates out of multiple locations in three different suburbs; Glenorie Public School and our two custom built facilities in Galston & Riverstone.

Phoenix has earn't itself a great reputation over the last 10 years for quality dance training within The Hills and Blacktown area with competition groups and soloists placing at National title levels. We take pride in every students development throughout the year and celebrate with them on every success. 

After 10 years of servicing our operating communities we continue to be dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing and inspiring space for our students to grow. Committed to providing our students with the highest quality in dance education, while developing positive attributes that will serve them throughout their lives. 

We hope Phoenix Dance Studios is a home away from home. A place where all children thrive, learn and feel valued. A second family!
