Welcome

Come and join in the fun and excitement at The Bloc!!! The Bloc offers boys and girls of school age an opportunity to learn dance and the art of performing with a strong emphasis on positive self esteem and enjoyment.

Our team of teachers are committed to share their love of dance with your child and provide them with technical excellence in a safe and nurturing environment. The centre has two spacious studios which can be combined when more space is required.

There is an end of year concert held in December along with local community performances throughout the year to give family and friends the opportunity to enjoy the childrens new found skills.

Lessons are 45 min long allowing sufficient time during class to run a warm up, learn routines and to cool down.

Located at the tip of the Southern Highlands 20 minutes south of Campbelltown.

The Bloc Bargo Dance Academy was established in 2010 to provide the Wollondilly Shire with a fun learning environment
