Quality teaching from practising professionals

Established in 2017, founded and directed by Luanne Hyson, the Melbourne Studio of Ballet offers classes taught by professionals in a welcoming, and inspiring studio location in Thornbury (South), Melbourne. 

The school is open to passionate and dedicated students from 4 years old to adults. Students are taught classical ballet following the Vaganova (Russian) method. Classes of repertoire, character and contemporary dance are introduced at the appropriate level and students have the opportunity to participate in annual examinations, our mid-year and end of year performances. 

 Our new studio is spacious with natural light and professionally equipped with fully sprung tarkett dance flooring, barres and mirrors providing students with the best possible facility to dance. 

The Melbourne Studio of Ballet is a thriving outlet of classical and contemporary dance culture linked with the activities of independent professional dance company - Dancebourne Arts.



Great Experiences

"Luanne has been my Adult Ballet teacher for over 5 years. I adore her welcoming and encouraging approach to classes, particularly important for those of us starting afresh or returning ballet. Luanne's teaching is beautifully accessible - she combines the joy and expressiveness of professional dance with correct technique and placement, visualisation, supreme intelligence and individual instruction tailored to our levels. Give it a go, you won't look back!" ~ Bronwen, Adult student, Melbourne Studio of Ballet"


Melbourne Northsiders, here's a little practical inspiration for you! My longtime teacher Luanne has recently started her own ballet school, Melbourne Studio of Ballet, offering classes for children, adults and professionals. I can attest to her attention to detail and insistence on correct technique and placement - I've improved so much over time, and so have my classmates. If you're looking for a class, check out her website.


Having tried adult beginner+ classes all over Melbourne, I would recommend Melbourne Studio of Ballet a thousand times over. Super welcoming and highest quality teaching. Love.


My daughter has been attending Melbourne Studio of Ballet for 3 years. We have found Miss Luanne to be very dedicated in providing the highest quality experience, skills and technique to all her students.She is very professional and has immense experience.  She challenges, inspires and motivates all her students to achieve their best. Opportunities are plentiful for those who wish to grow professionally in Ballet. We highly recommend Melbourne Studio of Ballet, Miss Luanne and her exceptional experienced teachers.


Luanne is amazing with the children and challenges them to be the best they can.
My daughter is in her Prep B class and she loves going each week. She has also formed friendships with some of the girls.
