Since it was established in 1989, Isolation Performing Arts Studio has built a reputation as being a performer’s “home away from home.” Under the direction of Kerrie Power, IPAS endeavours to provide every student with the opportunity to learn and develop their performance skills in all of their chosen areas, and to also build their confidence and develop their creativity and personality for the stage. Whether you’re a beginner or have chosen the performing arts as your career, we open the doors to exploration.

At Isolation we are dedicated to providing a friendly and encouraging environment for dancers of all ages to pursue their dance education. We are committed to the development of each and every dancer and will do our upmost to assist each of our students in achieving their own personal goals and aspirations. Our highly qualified teachers are committed to sharing their passion for dance with students and working with each individual in building confidence, strength and technique.

Whether our students are enrolled in dance for fun and exercise or they are aiming to make their way into the professional performing arts industry, we are dedicated to fulfilling their every intention by providing high calibre training programs. We offer training for all ages from children to adults and classes for all levels and abilities – from beginner to advanced.

At Isolation we encourage our students to strive for excellence as an all-round performer and to participate in competitions across the state to build their self-confidence and refine their skills as a performer. Every year our students work towards performances, whether it be examinations, competitions, concerts or other performing opportunities to showcase their individual talents.  Our ultimate goal is for students to feel comfortable and supported at our studio in an environment where they can have fun. We want our students to feel they are part of a family and form lifelong friendships with one another while sharing the same passion of the performing arts.
