In 1932 Jacob Bloch immigrated from Eastern Europe and settled in Sydney, Australia. There he met a ballerina and promised he would craft her the most comfortable ballet pointe shoe in the world.

His effort was so successful that it generated the creation of a full range of dance and dance fashion products.

Since that time, the rapid growth of Bloch’s reputation has established the brand as one of the most trusted within the industry. Quite simply, our Dance DNA is in every product we make. Today Bloch is still fulfilling the promise made by its founder all those years ago and has evolved into a truly inspirational, forward-thinking contemporary dancewear brand. www.bloch.com.au

What differentiates Spectrum Dance Full Time from other institutions is three-fold. Firstly, all members of the Spectrum Dance teaching faculty are working in the industry. We believe that this is crucial for student engagement, for current skills, and for ensuring that the training in the studios is relevant to the industry. Secondly, we offer our students the opportunity to excel through specialised teaching techniques, focusing on individual student development. Spectrum students receive an individually tailored curriculum to achieve advanced performance techniques in all facets of dance, singing and acting – in other words “the triple threat”. Finally Spectrum Dance provides opportunities for our students to engage in the entertainment industry (Industry Based Learning) placing our students at the forefront of their peers.
