 Principal -  Miss Lani McGeady  (Lic Dip)CBA CICB

               Diploma in Dance Teaching and Management

               Recipient of 2016 WA Dance Teacher Award.


Trained in Melbourne by Miss Shirley Jones, Lani McGeady has continued to educate herself in the Cecchetti Syllabus as well as all genres of dance. She holds a Diploma in Dance Teaching and management and recently completed her anatomy and history component to receive her Cecchetti Licentiate Diploma.

Miss Lani's passion is to see dance available for rural children in all areas and to offer as many opportunities to our country children as possible, opportunities that their city cousins enjoy. Each year Miss Lani gives out between 6-12 invitations for formal training in the form of scholarships and partial scholarships to children who show potential for classical ballet. To see these children and their families travel to Perth, interstate and even overseas, and to open up their worlds to a wealth of experiences and opportunities, is very rewarding.

Miss Lani chooses the music, themes, costumes and choreographs the items for all RDSWA concerts, overseeing the training and direction of all the schools and the children, intent on continuing to spead the love of dance and quality tuition to children in rural areas.
