Established in 2015, Owner and head choreographer Miss Jess wanted to open a studio where students of all ages could develop a lifelong love of dance, acting, acrobatics and singing, while also having fun, learning and growing in a safe and enjoyable environment. She wanted a place where students could learn the importance of respect, teamwork, communication, commitment and the joy of working hard and achieving their goals.

She gained her qualifications in Melbourne, with a Diploma of Dance Teaching & Management and Certificate IV in Training & Assessment.
