      Dancing is for fun!


      Students aged from 2yrs to 102 can learn how to dance at First Pointe in a relaxed and safe atmosphere with no pressure of exams or competitions and no expensive dance uniforms.


      Students can learn correct dance techniques while enjoying FUN dance lessons, and class fees are at great value.


      First Pointe currently has 5 different dance studio locations on the Sunshine Coast, located in Mudjimba, Buderim, Noosa, Kawana Island and Adult dance classes at Verrierdale Hall.


      Principal of the studio Laura Kasauskas started dancing at the age of 2, and at age 13 her dancing talents took her over to London where she was accepted into the Royal Ballet School.


      Laura also danced with the Southern Youth Ballet Company and at age 16 trained full time at Central School of Ballet in London. In 2008, Laura received her Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Professional Dance and Performance Studies and toured with Ballet Central Company to numerous theatres in Great Britain, performing repertoires from The Nutcracker & Sleeping Beauty.


      Laura moved back home to Australia and discovered her passion for teaching and sharing her knowledge of dance with her students. In 2012 she established First Pointe Dance Academy in Mackay where she entered students in R.A.D Ballet, & CSTD Jazz and Tap examinations, from Pre Primary up to advanced exams with very successful results. Her students also competed & were awarded places in the local Mackay Eisteddfod, and one of her senior students was accepted into the Queensland Ballet School of Excellence Program.


      In 2015 Laura moved to the Sunshine Coast and re commenced teaching under the name First Pointe. Laura currently teaches a wider age range from 2yrs – 102yrs in; Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, Contemporary Dance, and innovative Chair Tap classes for the elderly. First Pointe also encourages students to participate in a ‘Performance Troupe’ to gain performance experiences at public events across the Sunshine Coast.


      Laura created First Pointe with the purpose of welcoming all students of all ages, into a relaxed, fun and safe environment especially tailored for their age, needs and abilities. Laura has developed all classes as a fun dance experience that she strongly believes will have a lifelong impact on each student.


      Principal Laura Kasauskas is well qualified and very competent to teach your child and for them to enjoy the experience.
