Hello and welcome to the Aspire Arts Academy website!

Inspire . Perform . Achieve

Aspire Arts Academy is based in Matamata. We endeavour to be a performing arts school that provides quality arts education whilst ensuring we encompass the fun factor in all classes. Through this we aim to encourage greater confidence and creative expression through dance and drama.
We currently provide classes in Jazz, Hip Hop, Acro, Ballet, Tap, Lyrical & Contemporary, Musical Theatre dance and Drama with the long term vision to one day provide classes in more performing art disciplines. There are two main intakes in a year; at the beginning of the school year and in the middle of the school year.
The first half of the year students work towards exams and in the later half of the year classes work towards the end of year show.

We provide classes from pre-school to adults so contact us now about classes!

Our studio is at 19 Tui Street! Come check us out!

What do you love about dance?

"That I get to move my body" - Level 1 Hip Hop

"I love doing the robot!" - Level 1 Hip Hop

"I love dance because it makes me happy, I am able to express my emotions through it, when I dance I don't feel any negative energy just the happiness of being able to stand on my feet and move in a way some can't and to be able to let go of any worries or stress that I am feeling through something so beautiful" - Alana 15yrs
