Dancing Through Life Studios
New on the dance scene, Dancing Through Life Studios is your local adult dance studio located in Sydney's North Shore.
DTLS Founder, Lauren Mackinnon, combines her industry training along with 10 years of dance teaching experience, to empower adults in their learning of new dance styles.
"Everyone can be a dancer. Regardless of whether you have had years of training or none at all.
As a dancer, I have had many negative experiences leaving a class feeling disheartened and inadequate." - Lauren MacKinnon
Our aim at DTLS is for our dancers to leave our classes feeling empowered, energised, and accomplished. Whether that is through learning a new skill, refining technique, achieving fitness goals, or leaving with a new friend.
DTLS is a social, non-competitive, creative space that welcomes all dancers.
"My dream for DTLS is to be a studio where dancers from different walks of life can come together to encourage, energise
and inspire each other through dance - without even noticing that they are working out!"
- Lauren MacKinnon
WHAT OUR DANCERS LOVE ABOUT DTLS
Trying to find adult dance classes that truly cater to beginners is difficult.
As a beginner, you want a fun, supportive environment and to be surrounded by like-minded people. Having a teacher that is friendly, approachable, and knows when to challenge you is also a must - DTLS ticks all the boxes!
I've had so much fun doing classes online and can't wait to join in at the studio once quarantine has lifted. Thanks Lauren! 😊💃

WHAT THE PROFESSIONALS HAVE SAID ABOUT DTLS
I had the pleasure of being Musical Director to Lauren's Choreographer for a production of "The Wedding Singer" a few years ago, and it was a great, collaborative experience.
Lauren's creativity, coupled with attention to detail and work ethic, were all particularly impressive. She also has an all too rare skill of working effectively with dancers of all abilities, tailoring her instruction whilst bonding the group into a unified ensemble.
I would work with Lauren again without hesitation, and very much endorse her as Dance Teacher, Choreographer, and all-round nice person!!!
