I've attended Dancing Through Life Studios (Beginner Tap/Theatre Jazz) for a few months now, and cannot recommend it enough! Lauren is a diligent and experienced teacher and choreographer who caters to all levels with an encouraging and professional manner. I don't think of myself as much of a dancer but with these classes I've seen great strides in my abilities. Classes never fail to put a smile on my face and leave me feeling excited for the next week. A fantastic experience that I'd recommend to anyone interested in dance!

This studio is warm, welcoming, inclusive and adaptable to everyone's needs and levels of dance.

Lauren is a phenomenal teacher who makes you feel like you are a dancer the second you walk in the door.

An excellent and beautiful studio!

I’ve been looking long and hard for decent advanced classes in the Hornsby area and Lauren has been such a pleasant surprise. Finally classes that challenge and excite me each and every week.


It’s fitness and fun all rolled into one and I couldn’t recommend Dancing Through Life Studios more highly.


With beginner through to intermediate/advanced in tap and jazz, it’s a must try for all local dancers! 👯


Tap & Jazz Dancer

Had an absolutely fantastic time with Lauren as my teacher - I'm not a confident mover but I felt really supported and encouraged through her whole class.

A great workout, and the perfect space to come and improve my fitness and technique without judgement.

Thanks Lauren!

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! 😊💃


Theatre Jazz Dancer

 I'm so glad I finally stopped procrastinating and took up dance classes. Even after my first Hip Hop (Beginner) class I started enjoying music and social events way more! I would recommend DTLS to anyone looking for dance classes around the North Shore, ESPECIALLY beginners. You will be welcomed from the moment you step foot into the studio and I promise you will have tons of fun.

I've always had a blast dancing with Lauren! The Theatre Jazz classes change every 5 weeks, with a different theme/routine, so it keeps things interesting! I would highly recommend having a boogie with DTLS!

She made the classes fun and helped me to improve my technique.

There's always a lot of laughs and great choreography to learn.

I would thoroughly recommend Dancing Through Life Studios to everybody!

So nice to find a studio that caters to adults and their often hectic lifestyle. 

Classes are on at convenient times and you can pay by the class so it doesn't matter if you need to travel for work or have other family commitments.

Lauren is great and I have learnt so much in just a few weeks.


Tap Dancer

I have attended some one-off casual classes. They are so much fun and it is awesome to dance with people of all ages.

Lauren not only comes up with fun routines but also understands the different levels of dance of her students.

If you’re just looking for some fun or exercise, or if you're looking to pick up a new skill, go to DTLS!

Great experience so far, love that the classes are open and the Theatre Jazz class is great fun!

This studio is amazing! I’ve been going to this dance studio for the past 3 months and have been thoroughly pleased with the whole experience.

Lauren is very encouraging and the entire environment is very welcoming. The classes, although on the smaller side, are very in-depth and helpful. 

Would 100% recommend this studio for people who are looking to improve their dance skills! 😊

As an adult beginner, it can be daunting but Lauren is patient and makes us feel comfortable while still challenging us each week!

I have done both the stretch class as well as hip hop classes.

Being a more mature student I was worried about the pace and my ability but Lauren was an excellent guide and teacher.

 Patient and persistent.

I felt at ease doing something out of my comfort zone whilst learning a new skill.

This studio is amazing! I've been taking beginner musical theatre dance classes and they are awesome. So much fun and so well taught.

I really recommend this studio as a fun and easy way to learn how to dance.
