About Us

The school, established by two sisters, Elaine and Shirley Honeybrook, has been operating in the Balmain area for over 80 years. It is a family run school that is now mentored with love by Leanne Donaldson.

The aim at Honeybrook’s is to produce students of all ages who attain technique, strength and discipline through commitment to classes and RAD ballet exams each year. Honeybrook School of Dancing is like one big family where we aim to provide students with another home. We pride ourselves on individual attention given to all our students, while they are learning, whether it's for fun, friendships or going into the industry.
