About us

Believe Dance Studio is all about the joy of dance. We want our students to grow a passion for this beautiful artform with each class focusing on technique, performance and fun in equal measures. Dance class should be a place to grow, learn, unwind and make life-long friends and our relaxed and inclusive studio offers exactly that!


MISS JODIE (OWNER/HEAD TEACHER) – With years of experience in the dance industry, Miss Jodie took all the best bits of her dance training and teaching, and rolled them into one. After dancing professionally in South Africa, she moved to the UK where she started a family and studied her ballet teaching through the Royal Academy of Dance in London. Having taught in the UK for a few years, Jodie and her family moved to New Zealand in 2010. Since managing a dance shop and teaching at Bella Dance, Jodie finally secured her own premises in 2016, and “voila”, Believe Dance Studio was born.

At Believe dance studio embodies a spirit of perseverance. There is no place for perfection in a learning environment, every skill can be sharpened and every smile made brighter! We hope that you’ll love being part of our studio as much as we love having you there 🙂

MISS HARRIET (BALLET TEACHER) – Miss Harriet gained her Licentiate Degree at the RAD headquarters in Battersea, London and has taught at various schools across England, including as an assistant teacher for the English National Ballet junior department. In 2017/2018 she spent time teaching at two studios in Sydney, gaining further experience to expand her ever-growing knowledge of the ballet world. Miss Harriet teaches all our Saturday classes.
