At BOLD Dance & Arts, we are passionate about giving our students the best skills & knowledge we can, in a fun and constructive way, to support their dance journey and let each individual’s personality shine through their dance as well as create life long friendships.

The school philosophy is as the dictionary says….
BOLD – Adjective: (of a person, action or idea)


“I have enjoyed the past few years at BOLD, it has been a huge goal and dream to have the confidence and skill to dance in front of people, Bobbie, is a great Principal teacher, from learning basic dance skills and technique, BOLD is helping my dream of being a better dancer come true! I am so looking forward to what 2016, and the future will hold for me at BOLD”
– Emily Armistead, Lakes Entrance Student

“The Adults Class is wonderful, whether , you used to put on a pair of dance shoes years ago, or not. It is a wonderful way to get active, dancing to music, while being taught dancing skills. Regardless of age, fitness level, it is well worth having a go. It was a great group this year, loads of fun. Thank you BOLD and Bobbie, for giving us Adults a go at ‘Strutting our Stuff'”
– Cherie Armistead, Lakes Entrance

“BOLD Dance has been amazing for my girls. The are so very different with one confident and enthusiastic and the other shy and nervous, Bobbie and her caring, professional nature has been able to bring out the absolute star in both of them! They live to dance and can’t wait to rehearsals each week. They were so proud to share their performances at the concert this year and as a Mum I couldn’t be prouder. My girls are flourishing under Bobbie’s care and I can’t wait to see where this beautiful dance journey takes them.”
– Erin Voss, Orbost

“I love dancing because it makes me feel happy and free. Dancing was always my chosen sport when I was younger so I choose that over everything. I love helping out at BOLD because it’s just like helping my family. The kids are so lovely and I can tell that they love to dance; I can see it in their faces and the way they try so hard!”
– Taylah Russell, Orbost Student

“I thank you for motivating, exciting, and embracing Molly as a young dancer, and young person. Her ability to be surrounded by positive role models has been incredibly powerful for her development.
Her love and passion for dance is incredible and a great delight to us.”
– Susan Hopkins, Orbost
