In our first lesson with Ms Bellis I knew she meant business! She worked us hard and correctly, and it was the first time I felt like I was dancing properly, really using my muscles and brain in the right way! I loved her as a teacher, I wanted to work hard for her because if you worked for her, she would push and help you all she could. She was focused and determined but would always tell a little joke or smile if needed! I’m thankful for all she passed on to me; she is a great teacher and a lovely person with so much knowledge. I miss her and hope to be taught by her again!

Andrew’s teaching has instilled many emerging young dance artists with an exceptional foundation. I am excited by the pathways many of them are now traveling with great success. I have had the pleasure to be both a student and colleague of Andrew’s and the knowledge he has shared stays with me today through many aspects of my practice.

My teachers at Victoria Academy of Ballet were always so patient as I was learning English. Ms Bellis encouraged me and gave me many corrections so that I could improve my technique, my artistry, and confidence. I will never forget this precious time at the academy, when I grew up, graduated from high school, and danced at such a special school.
