Our mission is to inspire & empower young people through dance by creating meaningful connections both in & out of the studio.
For 40years Academy Ballet has nurtured young dancers from caterpillars to butterflies. Our story truly lies within the stories of all our students, both existing and past, for who ballet plays an instrumental role in their lives.
Academy Ballet was founded by Nicholina Kuner in 1979 and has been a rich part of Sydney's dancing community since then.
Sinead Vidler, the Director of Academy Ballet, is herself a former student of Academy Ballet. She started learning ballet when she was five years old. After her first class she told her mum; she wanted to be a ballet teacher just like Mrs Kuner....and the rest as they say is history.
Each year our students perform in a magical full length ballet.

This year for our 40th anniversary we will be performing "The Nutcracker."
