Professional Dance Tuition from ages 2+

Welcome to The Wallace Academy This Web Site is designed to inform you about our Dance Centre, our goals, staffing and to give other practical information that may be of interest to parents considering enrolling their child/children with the studio. 


The Wallace Academy was established in 1987 under Director, Mrs Marguerite Wallace R.A.D RTS, MEDTA and C.S.T.D Associate, and is administered by the staff, students, parents, friends and family of the Academy.

The Wallace Academy Studios are located at: Shed 1/2, 13 Turley St Ipswich and has subsidiaries in Rosewood and Boonah.

Marguerite started dancing at an early age and danced professionally for two years. Specializing primarily in nightclub reviews and chorus line work, a career highlight included working with Hugh Hill, Syd Heyland, and Jon Lees in the musical spectacular The Good Old Days of Vaudeville. After a short professional career, Marguerite married, and decided to pursue her desire for teaching, gaining her R.A.D. Teachers Certificate in 1990. Shortly after, she gained her R.A.D. Teachers Diploma in 1992. Marguerite decided to branch out and added the C.S.T.D. facet to her studio. Since such times The Wallace Academy has excelled in all facets of dance. Marguerite's desire is to pass on both her technical knowledge as well as her love of dance to her pupils.

The teaching staff at the Wallace Academy is always extremely professional. The staff is fully qualified and are required to attend workshops and seminars throughout the year in order to keep up with new teaching techniques and syllabus modifications. If there are any problems in the studio, the teachers, student teachers and aids always refer the problems to the Director to avoid confusion or conflict with studio policy.
