The Dance Workshop was founded by Theresa Lungaro-Mifsud in 1999 to provide a creative home for young bodies, minds and spirits. Since then, it established itself as a leading dance school committed to producing educated dance students of excellence. The Dance Workshop offers outstanding dance tuition for children, youths and adults, nurturing creativity and spontaneity while providing a sound technical foundation. Children aged 3- 6 years will thrive in creative ballet classes, while older students can choose from a wide selection of dance styles. With Classical Ballet as its base, The Dance Workshop also specialises in Contemporary Dance, Modern Theatre and Hip Hop. Classes are also taught in Flamenco. This combination of dance forms is encouraged to equip our students and dancers with all the physical tools of their art, as well as the intellectual needs of the modern artist.
The teachers’ dedication within the school’s philosophy has produced excellent outcomes, with major students gaining outstanding results in their dance examinations. Every Year, students from The Dance Workshop are successfully auditioning for international academies. The Dance Workshop aims to set its mark as a stepping-stone towards vocational training. In 2005, The Dance Workshop was the first dance school in Malta to be recognised as an Approved Dance Centre by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (UK).
In September 2010, The Dance Workshop moved to new premises in Guardamangia. This ex-factory has been converted to a state-of-the-art dance school, which boasts of three fully equipped dance studios. Each studio has a Harlequin dance carpet with professionally sprung floors. All three studios have wall-to-wall mirrors, which have been rendered shatterproof to ensure the students’ safety. Barres in the studios are placed at different levels to suit different heights. Each studio has an electric keyboard as well as air-conditioning and ventilation units to ensure a constant flow of fresh air whilst the studios are being used.
The reception area has been designated as a quiet area furnished with tables and chairs where students are able to keep up with their academic studies. Dressing rooms and toilets/showers are also available. Parking is easily available at the multi-storey car park, which is 50m away from The Dance Workshop.
The studios are accessible by public transport, as a bus terminus is situated in front of St. Luke’s Hospital or on the main road in Msida seafront both situated less than a 5 minutes’ walk from the school.
