Welcome to the AGDA!
The Angela Goodall Dance Academy (AGDA) was founded by Angela Goodall under the guidance and mentorship of Cathrine Aslin MNZM. A well known member of the dance community Cathrine Aslin ran her own school in Newlands until her retirement in 2000. Angela started her own school in 2001 to continue providing quality dance classes to the Newlands and surrounding suburbs community. Cathrine Aslin was an avid supporter of the studio until her passing in 2008.
The AGDA places emphasis on the enjoyment of dance and encourages students to strive for excellence in their class, exam and performance work.
The AGDA offers classes in Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, Tap, Contemporary and Pre School dance following the New Zealand Association of Modern Dance syllabus. We aim to to provide every dancer with excellent dance training in a positive, nurturing, fun learning environment.
