Who are we?

  • CODE stands for Centre of Dance & Exercise, and that is exactly who we are! As a dance academy, we eat, breathe and live dance
  • With our origins in East Bentleigh, we at CODE have established ourselves as a one-stop-shop dance studio for all things dance, with dance classes in a range of styles for all school ages, in a variety of streams to suit every dancer
  • With two amazing purpose-built dance studios in Oakleigh and Mordialloc, we're bringing that same dedicated dance attitude to even more of you!

What do we stand for?

  • Inclusion. Our students and families are our CODE family, where everyone is welcomed and valued
  • Premier dance technique and training. We value each dancer being the best they can be, through leading training from experienced dance teachers
  • Individual Development. We understand the individual needs of each dancer and support them in reaching their goals
