About Us


Encore Dance has been creating dance memories in Hobart for over 35 years.


At Encore we believe that dance is for everyone. Encore is a place where dancers can learn, grow, and express themselves in a encouraging and relaxed environment.


We believe that what we teach is so much more than just dance steps. We consider that dance teaches many life qualities that young people need such as coordination, fitness, confidence, self-esteem, respect, trust and resilience. 


Our motto is - we raise HAPPY, CONFIDENT dancers no matter their level or ability. Our main goal is to ensure that the students leave our classrooms with a sense of pride and joy as they take on their knowledge of proper dance technique.


Our dance classes cover all facets from the recreational dancer through to opportunities for the dancer wishing to be challenged more. All of our classes combine teaching proper technique, self esteem, working with fellow students, and respect. Our philosophy is to make dance fun for everyone! That is why our teachers bring high energy, great music, and fun combinations to class every week. Placement into class is decided by the age of the student and their dance experience.
