About Us

Our History

Our founder, Elle Lyons, has been dancing all her life. In Melbourne, 2009, she began teaching for the new and upcoming dance school known as Kinderballet.

In 2013, after moving back home to the Gold Coast, Elle started her dance school. She was given the opportunity to become an exclusive licensee for the Kinderballet program across the gold coast.

Through patience, passion and dedication, Elle continued to grow and expand her pre-school ballet classes. She had multiple venues across the Gold Coast and hundreds of students attending classes every week.

These classes were all under the Pre-School Dance School known as Butterfly Ballet.

At the time, her husband, Matt was working full time as an Engineer. In 2017, due to the growth of the school, he came on board full-time.

In 2019, it was time to build the first studio!

After months of searching and location rejections, our first studio in Helensvale was built. This studio merged a bunch of our northern community centre venues into one location.

It also formed the beginnings of Inspire Academy! Now, with a dedicated studio, were we able to offer better facilities and more options for our growing group of dedicated students.

In 2020, it was time that our southern families had a studio of their own too. So we build our Burleigh Studio!

We these two locations, we are able to offer classes that are within reach for anyone on the Gold Coast.

Our secondary school, Inspire Academy has continued to grow and flourish with these two locations. We have added lots of new classes for school-aged children as they have grown up. We have new styles in Ballet, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Acrobatics, Tap & Singing.

Our Future

We have only just started!

Our vision is to be the most welcoming, friendly, inspiring and loving dance studio that we can be.

We are continuing to expand our range of class styles with plenty more on the way. Our age groups are also growing as our existing students grow up.

We will offer a complete range of dance styles to complement everything that our students are asking for.

We will continue to expand our age range of classes right up to young adults.

Our studios will need to grow! We aren’t far off needing additional rooms in both of our venues.

We will continue to upgrade and improve our facilities to be the best that is available.

We would love for your dancer to dance with us and be part of this amazing journey!
