Our Story

The Janice Breen Performance Studio is regarded as one of Sydney's best training centres for young dancers, singers and performers. Past students from JBPS have gone on to become outstanding performers in TV, film, advertising, commercial dance and major musical theatre productions.

Established by one of Sydney's most experienced entertainment professionals, Janice Breen OAM (1939-2017), the Janice Breen Performance Studio first opened its doors in Hillsdale in 1964 before moving to Coogee where the studio continued to operate for more than 40 years. An accomplished performer herself, Janice’s ​ teaching philosophy was based on energy, fun, encouragement, hard work ... and most importantly the joy of just being a kid! Janice was a firm believer that the confidence and discipline her students gained from performing would benefit them throughout their lives and she was always incredibly proud of the level of success her students attained in their chosen field, whether that be entertainment or otherwise.

Sadly, our beloved Miss Jan passed away in 2017 but her incredible legacy continues. Now permanently based in Alexandria, the Janice Breen Performance Studio offers classes in jazz, tap, RAD classical ballet, lyrical, hip hop, singing and acrobatics from tiny tots to professional levels, delivered by a teaching staff who are both tertiary and professionally qualified.

The Janice Breen Performance Studio caters for a range of levels of dedication and ability. Whether you plan on making a career out of dance or want to keep fit and make life-long friends, we have a class for you!
