Dance to your own beat

Whether you’d like to attend fun, casual dance classes, or enrol as a serious student – which has everything you would expect from a world-class dance institution such as weekly rehearsals, live performances, competitions, and graded examinations – the choice is yours!

In fact, many former JMDC students have gone on to achieve great success in the dance industry – becoming teachers, touring across Australia and worldwide, and running their own successful studios. Whatever your goals may be, JMDC is a great first stepping stone to broader horizons.

The Jody Marshall Dance Company has been in operation as one of Perth’s foremost dance companies for the past 42 years.

Since its establishment in 1976, director Jody Marshall has developed an impressive reputation as one of Perth’s longest running dance schools.

With a staff of high calibre teachers, The Jody Marshall Dance Company offers exceptional training in a variety of dance styles including: jazz, lyrical, contemporary, tap, classical ballet, hip-hop, acrobatics and musical theatre. All teachers have diplomas in all forms of dance. Many of our teachers are also former students of The Jody Marshall Dance Company, returning to educate the next generation of students after time in the professional industry.

Classes are open to all ages, with preschooler classes offered to children from the tender age of 18 months, and fun adult classes including lovely ladies still tapping in their 80s.


Professional and Successful... if you are after a family to guide, support, nurture and encourage with years of experience JMDC is the studio for you! Learn and explore ALL genres of dance! You won’t be disappointed I am a student of 28 years and a mum with sons who love the dance, fun and friendships


Amazing dance studio. My 3 children dance at Jody's... my son and two daughters. My daughters especially love to dance. This school teaches superior technique while having fun. Jody's attention to detail when teaching technique is really something. Why go anywhere else. Hands down best studio in the area.


I can highly recommend JMDC, my daughter has danced here for 5 years. The teaching is to a professional quality with a fantastic focus on technique, all while being fun and making great friendships. The end of year concerts are amazing and I especially like the age appropriateness of the routines and costuming.


Can’t speak highly enough about JMDC. Exceptional attention to technique and a highly professional teaching staff. Their end of year performances are second to none. The ladies tap class is one of my most favourite hours of the week. Great workout, loads of fun and a wonderful group of ladies.


The level of professionalism, dedication, commitment and enthusiasm of the JMDC teachers is first class! Our daughter has loved learning and growing with the wonderful support of the JMDC family. Highly recommend to others!
