Ballerina thrives in the Top of the South
All for the love of dance
New programmes at NMIT in 2014
Peta Spooner has been introducing people to the joys of
dance for the past 47 years. Her passion for teaching is
shared by her fellow teachers at the Peta Spooner Academy
of Dance, which aims to develop well-rounded dancers
who are gracious, considerate and have a good attitude.
Ballet is a wonderful activity for children, capable of
teaching confidence, poise and grace and the academy has
a reputation for nurturing young talent. Angelina Ballerina
accredited for two years now, the academy has a reputation
for nurturing young dancers.
To become an Angelina Ballerina studio, dance schools
must meet specific criteria, so you can be confident that
your child will learn from a recognised ballet curriculum,
while having fun with Angelina themed class learning
activities and incentives. For little stars with big dreams, an
Angelina Ballerina Academy is a great place to start.
Many of the academy's students -- both male and
female - have gone on to top national dance schools and
professional dance careers, but Peta and her team -- which
includes highly qualified and experienced teachers who
have been with the academy for many years - derive just as
much pleasure from teaching kids who might not be the best
dancers, but do it for the pure and simple pleasure of it.
The academy provides tuition in classical ballet,
contemporary dance, modern jazz and theatre craft.
Students of all abilities get regular opportunities to perform
on stage in front of an audience and all are encouraged to
have faith in themselves so they can achieve their goals.

internal entrepreneurs who want to learn about innovation,
entrepreneurship and business enterprise management,
this is a postgraduate (Level 8) qualification for those
who have already completed undergraduate degrees or
have equivalent industry experience. Highly practical and
project-based, it's being delivered in a way that's short,
sharp and tailored to suit people who are already working.
