Centrestage Performing Arts School is based in Brunswick East in Melbourne’s inner north. The school was established in 1991 by Ian and Leanne White and is the realisation of their vision to create a vibrant training ground for professional standard ‘triple threat’ performers i.e. performers who are equally competent as singers, dancers and actors.

Twenty one years later, the school has approximately 500 current students with many past students successfully performing all over the world. Centrestage provides training in state of the art studio facilities and offers classes in all forms of dance (Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Hip Hop) Drama (including Film/Television electives) Musical Theatre and Acrobatics.
