Iconic local dance studio, Gayle Prescott Dance School has recently changed ownership and is now in the capable hands of Rebecca Wyatt, a former dancer of the studio.
Fifty years ago, Gayle Prescott’s dream of having her own dance studio became a reality when she launched her first classes from her parents' garage in 1968. The studio continued to grow and eventually moved to its current prominent position on the corner of Himalaya Crescent in Lynfield. Now Rebecca has the honour of leading the school and bringing it into a new era.
Rebecca has been dancing for 18 years and has experience at numerous dance and fitness studios in teaching, managing, and directing roles. She has instructed overseas in New York City and is known for her warm and friendly personality. “I’m excited to inject fresh ideas into the school and spread my passion for dance with as many people as possible,” she says.
The school currently offers ballet, tap, jazz, and adults’ classes, with students successfully participating in competitions, exams, and shows. There are two fully-equipped studios, a dancewear shop and plenty of on-road parking, making the dance experience accessible and enjoyable for everyone. In an easy-to-access location the studio is just down from Halsey Drive Primary School.
Classes cater for all levels, from preschool through to advanced and adult classes; whether you’re a beginner or an experienced dancer looking to improve your technique.
The link between dance, fitness and wellbeing is becoming more popular and new classes will reflect this as the school develops. Students are encouraged to become the best that they can be as they are introduced to the joy of dance and the physical and mental benefits that come with it.
