About Us

RICH HISTORY

SABA has been successfully teaching students since 1952 and has established itself as one of Auckland's top performing and most respected dance schools.

Founded by Valerie Murray, SABA quickly flourished from its base in South Auckland. With over six decades of tutelage the school has been privileged to take many students from aspiring young dancers through to competitive success and professional careers.

Upon Valerie's retirement in 2012, Emma McInnes took over the reigns at SABA.

From our purpose built Epsom studios SABA offers classes in a wide range of dance styles which include: RAD Ballet, NZAMD Jazz, Contemporary, Stretch Leap & Spin, Open Classes, Repertoire, Body Conditioning, Pilates, Tap & Hip Hop.
