Rose McRae Dance Academy

Welcome to the Rose McRae Dance Academy

RMDA was established in 1999 and we are always looking at ways we can improve and be the best we can be for our students.  Therefore we have taken on a different structure for 2014 and are focusing on Ballet, Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and Jazz, American Jazz Dance Affiliation (AJDA).  

The RMDA faculty are committed to making this a reality with accurate teaching, encouragement, appropriate forms of discipline, guidance, inspiration and positive reinforcement provided in a safe and secure environment.  Our aim to develop more strength within our dancers and offer them additional goals for examinations and gaining the basic knowledge and understanding of these two genres.  An added incentive is we will be holding regular workshops and inviting National and International tutors to teach at these workshops.   Check out our face book page for these workshops and other events which are coming up.
We cater for students aged from 3 1/2 years to adults.

Our vision is to be an Academy of excellence, by providing consistent, structured, methodical teaching throughout the Academy.  Produce a high pass rate with our examination results whilst developing the passion and enjoyment of the dance genres that we offer at RMDA.  

'Be the best you can be at RMDA, fostering enjoyment and a passion for dance'    

RMDA' Mission Statement


For the more adventurous students we have performing groups. This gives the students an opportunity to dance in competitions and perform at a variety of community events.

Our studio locations are: Pakuranga, Clevedon, and Waiheke Island

* Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing. It’s the rhythm of your life. It’s the expression in time & movement, in happiness, joy, sadness & envy*
Quote from: Jacques D’Amboise (Principal Dancer New York City Ballet, 1953)
