Ignite Performing Arts Studio provides classes for pre-schoolers all the way through to adults, in a wide variety of dance styles.

Our goal in every class is to create a fun and unique experience for each student, whilst bringing out the best in their ability. We focus on the important foundations of dance technique and implement that in an environment where our students will thrive.

Cassie Hoare (Miss Cassie)

Principal & Director of Ignite

Miss Cassie began dancing in Sydney at the age of 6, and started teaching at the age of 14. Upon her completion of HSC/VCE, she moved to Melbourne where she began her studies at Dance Factory, receiving her Certificate 4 in Dance and Certificate 4 in Dance Teaching & Management. She later went on to complete her full time studies with Spectrum Dance Studios, receiving her Diploma of Musical Theatre.

From a young age, Cassie realised that dance was her greatest passion. This would then be shown through her love of teaching and working with children. Through her experience of teaching in various environments including dance schools, private school extra curricular dance programs, primary school programs and pre-school ballet companies.

Cassie has a broad understanding of how to tailor each student's individual needs, and delivers it in a professional, fun and nurturing environment. At the very heart of Cassie's approach, is a commitment to understand and engage with children whilst embracing their passion and grow their confidence through dance.
