Directors and sisters, Kate and Beth McDermott, established the school in 2003 to offer premium dance tuition to pre-schoolers, recreational students and advanced dancers.  The school’s name “Caper” means a playful leap, or form of movement and this defines the culture of Caper. Classes are held in a friendly, professional and nurturing environment and are guided by an encouraging and potential-driven teaching philosophy.  All staff share a commitment to training students to have solid technique as well as developing performance skills.  Confidence is gained through skill progression with effort recognised through formal and informal merit systems.  At Caper, students should not only reach their personal best in dance, but also benefit from increased self-esteem, creativity and social skills.
