Singleton for six years. During that time we
have given children of all ages the chance to
dance and cheer, keep fit an exciting way as

In 2018 we made the decision to expand to
Merriwa. Miss Bec who has been with Empire for
five years, has moved to Merriwa and given the
community the chance to experience what it
is like to be in our family and take part in what
Singleton has had the chance to for many years.
Miss Bec has been overwhelmed with the turnout
and support of dance within the town! Dance
operates within Merriwa of a Monday afternoon
starting with Tiny classes at 3.30pm and finishing
with our seniors at 8.00pm. We have tailored our
costs to accommodate for the community, so
that everyone has a chance to participate. We
strongly believe in giving our students the best
no matter what financial background.
Currently we have a Krispy Kreme doughnut
fundraiser. The funds raised will purchase our
equipment for the Merriwa Studio. Equipment
includes, crash mats, mirrors, stretch mats and
gym mats. Order forms can be picked up from
the Post Office and must be returned by Monday
Some classes are almost at capacity. Contact
