It’s Us – Elevator Studios!

now, where were we?

How it all started

In 2012, sisters Annabelle Wilson & Sophie McSweeney took a giant leap of faith and opened Elevator Studios – a dynamic dance studio for adults and children.

Both former lawyers, and mothers to 7 young children, their aim was to combine Sophie’s 15 years experience teaching dance with their mutual knowledge of business and raising small people, to create a place where children could develop a lifelong love of dance, music and movement. In addition to developing technical skill and co-ordination, the sisters really wanted students to learn the importance of respect, discipline, teamwork, commitment, and the joy associated with working hard and achieving your goals.

Adult classes followed – and Elevator has the reputation as Melbourne’s best dance studio for casual classes for Musical Theatre professionals and training professionals. Our adult teachers are all leading industry professionals and include Melbourne’s most highly respected choreographers, performers and educators – Michael Ralph, Kim Adam, Robert Sturrock, Dana Jolly, Natalya Bobenko, Steven Grace & Nathan Pinnell.

We are so proud of our vibrant dance community and the talent, determination and joy that fills Elevator’s studios every day. Join us – and share in the magic!!
