Excellence in Dance @ Girls Grammar

An exciting new dance studio has been established to support the Rockhampton dance community. Rockhampton Girls Grammar School is delighted to announce the opening of ‘Nouveau Danse’ which, under the direction of Lauren Belonogoff, will ensure quality tuition in ballet (Royal Academy of Dance ‘RAD’ syllabus), jazz and tap (Australasian Dance Association ‘ADA’ syllabus). Nouveau Danse welcomes all students of dance.

The Studio has been established in the newly built Mouritz Dance Hall at Rockhampton Girls Grammar School. Principal Melinda Scash revealed that the facility “is a contemporary space which has been specifically designed for Dance. Girls Grammar has a proud tradition of excellence in Dance, winning National and State titles in both contemporary and modern dance. This is the perfect setting for Rockhampton’s newest dance academy.”

Lauren Belonogoff has been the principal of her own dance studio for 16 years and recently as resident teacher at two local dance schools. Her experience has seen her teaching RAD Ballet from Pre-primary through to the Advanced levels and ADA/FATD Jazz and Tap from Pre-primary through to Bar to Gold Star and the preparation of candidates for teachers examinations. As a studio, Nouveau Danse brings together Lauren’s rich and proven experience in a specialist venue for learning dance.
