Based in Thirroul NSW, the Academy of Music Dance Drama has been providing performing arts excellence in the Illawarra and beyond. With in-person lessons and remote learning available, the Academy is accessible for anyone who aspires to extend themselves in a safe, fun and friendly community.
Our lessons provide a sense of enjoyment and engagement and where students experience a learning environment that is positive and nurturing. If it’s to learn a new skill, pursue a career or just for enjoyment, all our teachers build the lessons around what the student wants.

Our Vision “At The Academy, we believe in the transformative power of the performing arts as a catalyst for individual expression, community cohesion, and cultural dialogue. Our commitment is to nurture each student’s creative potential, providing them with the technical mastery and inspiration to perform.
