Dance Academy


Fifteen-year-old Tara Webster has grown up on a farm in country Australia and has dreamt of being a dancer ever since she was a little girl. When she makes it into the National Academy of Dance — the best school in the country — she is sure her life is about to be spectacular. What Tara doesn’t realise is how far behind she is in her training, and that there’s a whole lot more to surviving the Academy than just dancing...

Her fellow students are athletes not fragile butterflies; modern kids who constantly bump heads with the rules of an old-fashioned world. They want to dance but they’re determined to have fun as well. Over the next three years against the stunning backdrop of Sydney Harbour, we will watch them battle through the minefield of elite dance training, and they’ll face the universal challenges of being a teenager. Relationships will grow and change as they live side by side in the Boarding House. They’ll each take a different path, but they’ll start to find out who they are, and they’ll all dare to chase their dreams.
