Goh Oakridge

Join the Movement

Of all art forms, ballet has the power to truly move. Rooted in tradition, yet dynamic by nature, it is poetry in constant motion. Forty years after the Goh Ballet Academy first opened its doors, we have found a kindred spirit and new home in Oakridge. A vibrant cultural hub that unites heritage with progress.

Goh Ballet Oakridge is Relocating! (Within Oakridge Centre)

It is with great anticipation and excitement that we announce Goh Ballet Oakridge is relocating to a newly renovated space at Oakridge Centre, opening September 2020. We look forward to providing students and the community with full and comprehensive training programs in this location from summer of this year.

While the redevelopment is ongoing, our next phase will house three spacious studios with all the professional attributes you’ve come to expect from Goh Ballet. Annual programs and drop-in classes for all ages will commence again in September 2020.

Goh Ballet looks to make significant contributions to the way people express, view, and enjoy art on a day-to-day bases. The long-term plan for Goh Ballet at Oakridge includes integrating enriching activities throughout the project, with everything from regular ballet performances in the park, to collaborations with musical performers, seasonal workshops, drop-in classes and exhibitions.

Stay tuned for more information in the months to come and thank you for your interest.

Showcase Performances

Throughout the school year at festivals, competitions, special events, educational outreach shows, the annual holiday production of The Nutcracker, as well as the annual showcase, we offer the chance to perform to an appreciative audience which provides students with the experience and charisma that will assist them in furthering their aspirations for future career goals and to cultivate their appreciation for the arts. This tremendous sense of achievement and confidence building is invaluable to a student’s development.
