Melbourne School of Classical Dance (MSCD) is recognised as one of the city's leading ballet schools for children and adults of all ages.  

MSCD was established in 2008 by professional dancer and ballet pedagogue Kate Reilly in a quest to provide the local community with access to quality ballet training based on the Russian ballet technique. It has since grown to offer classes from ages 3 years to adult, in classical ballet and allied studies. 


MSCD comprises five streams:

- Pre-Ballet Division for children students ages 3 to 6

- Preparatory Division for children ages 6 to 9

- Academic Division for young dancers ages 9 to 18

- Pre-Professional Division for dedicated and talented dancers.

- Adult Division for dancers age 16+ . 

MSCD's  faculty is a dedicated group of expert professional dancers, many of whom have also completed further studies in dance pedagogy. 


Approximately 300 male and female students, ranging in age from three to sixty, attend classes after school or after work. Industry professionals take classes regularly during the daytime. A specialised group of dedicated and talented students take our pre-professional daily training program. 

Performance Opportunities

Students from all streams* dance in our two annual productions, held in June/July and December each year. Further performance opportunities abound for dedicated students - guest performances, festivals, competitions and films are just some of the exciting events our students have been a part of.

* Tiny Tots have a special in-house performance at the end of the year.
