Welcome to S.H.A.K.E Dance School! Dance for REAL people


S.H.A.K.E. is an inner city dance studio run by Nikki McIntyre.

S.H.A.K.E Dance School started in 1998 in New Farm with 2 jazz classes and 9 students. It began as a part-time bit of fun for the principal and quickly expanded into a great big fun school filled with enthusiastic and talented students. We now do 7 different genres of dance, eisteddfods and over 200 exams each year. S.H.A.K.E dancers regularly perform at school fetes and community events and we have two major concerts at the end of each year.

Our students have gone on to further their education with the Queensland Ballet, QUT Fine Arts and others. We were the first Queensland studio to have a student pass the highest level of ballet with the CSTD.

We pride ourselves on having a welcoming atmosphere and producing dancers with a positive attitude and great work ethic.
