Situated in Ipswich, Qld, The Base Performing Arts is fast becoming the premiere performing arts studio for Ipswich and surrounding areas


At The Base Performing Arts, we pride ourselves on not only how we train our students but why. We believe quality is not just about the physical capabilities of a dancer but the mental and emotional connection as well. We want our dancers to be healthy and happy. Full stop.

"The Base Performing Arts is a studio that offers me the training, skills and life lessons I need to move forward into the performing arts industry. As a bonus, it comes with peers who encourage you with all their enthusiasm, teachers who are determined and strive for you to keep growing as a performer and person, as well as a positive and passionate culture."
