The Hunter Valley Dance Centre was established in the Maitland region in 1985 by Suzanne Pettit and Elizabeth Reid. Classes in Classical Ballet (Cecchetti Method), Jazz, Contemporary Dance and Early Childhood are held in Maitland, Largs and East Maitland.

For class locations please visit the Contact page.


Our classes are conducted within a warm and caring atmosphere in a professional and enjoyable manner. Students are encouraged to achieve their best whilst maintaining a kind and friendly sense of class cameraderie.


Parents are welcome to view the classes of the younger children when they commence their lessons, but it is asked that parents respect the domain of the instructor and their child's flourishing independance. Open days are held at the end of each term for all other classes.


The HVDC aims to provide quality dance instruction in all our classes in a friendly and caring atmosphere. Our goal is to encourage our students to achieve their best and develop a continuing love of dance. The benefits of dance are multilayered, combining physical fitness with artistic expression and fostering confidence and self discipline.
