TICKETS are now on sale for Albany Academy of Dance’s annual end-of-year spectacular.

5, 6, 7… Dance will be performed at the Albany Entertainment Centre on November 30 and December 1 and feature the talents of the academy’s tap, ballet, jazz and contemporary students.

Owner and teacher Simone Newton said the family-friendly event had something for everyone.

“We’ve got everything from Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole to Billie Eilish,” she said.

“There’s a lot of 80s in there and Queen, bit of classical ballet … a real mix of things.”

Some routines included in the concert are the choreographic creations of resident dancer and former academy student Rita Bush, who was recently awarded a grant from Regional Arts WA to perform at Adelaide Fringe 2020.

Ms Newton said the concert was popular for friends and families of students as well as potential academy students.

“If you are interested in putting your kids into dance next year, now’s a great time to come and see what we are all about,” she said.

Tickets to the November 30 and December 1 shows at 2pm can be purchased online at or at the AEC box office.
