What a wonderful year

Huge congratulations to all our performers who danced in the recent end-of-year concerts and musical! What fantastic experiences these were for our dancers, who absolutely shone despite all the challenges presented this year. We are so proud of you all!

We are beyond excited to welcome guest artist Mark Hill to Bayside Dance with Tap and Musical Theatre Jazz workshops. Mark is a performing superstar, who will be playing the lead role in The Producers in 2021. Read all about this special opportunity below!

We hope that you have all re-enrolled for your 2021 classes by now. If you haven’t, make sure you jump on over as soon as possible as places are filling very quickly! Enrolments are also now open to everyone, so let your friends know if they were hoping to book in.

If you have any questions, please get in contact on 0402 927 688 or

Wishing you a very wonderful and relaxing Christmas, and see you in the New Year!

Mark Hill has an incredible career to date and will be starring in The Producers as Leo Bloom in 2021. His stage credits include Mary Poppins as Bert U/S, (Disney, Cameron Macintosh), A Chorus Line, Don, (TML), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Goran U/S (TML), Opera Australia’s West Side Story and many more. Mark is also an accomplished actor, most recently appearing in the Emmy-nominated series Wanted. As a tapper, he founded Those Tap Guys and featured in The Tap Pack.

Miss Kaitlin says:
I have had the privilege of dancing and training alongside Mark, and now take every opportunity to learn from him where possible. His creativity and ingenuity when teaching tap challenges you to think outside the box. His ability to transport you to another place and time with his musical theatre choreography is second to none. I promise you’ll leave his classes reminded exactly why you love dance so much. I’m thrilled that Mark will be visiting Bayside Dance this December!
