Our Story

My name is Stacey Morgan and I am the Principal of Port Macquarie Performing Arts

I grew up in Wauchope, learning dance under the expert tuition of Francessca O’Donnell, who now joins us on staff. My love of dance has taken me all over the world. Firstly, as a professional dancer, then choreographer and now teacher.

Port Macquarie Performing Arts was born from my desire to empower the next generation of young people from this area that gave me so much stability and confidence when I was younger.

I am the wife of Heath, who co-owns the local Specsavers at Settlement City and the mother of Lucinda and Patrick.

My dream for PMPA was to teach more than just dance steps, to cultivate a love for dance and a passion for the arts in all of our students. I love bringing the magic of make believe from the studio to the stage. My purpose is to empower the next generation of young people, to build up young leaders ready to make a mark on their community and the world. Thanks for joining us on this journey…

 

PMPA is committed to providing high-quality dance classes to enhance the overall development of the child. We provide a safe and child-centered environment to encourage our students to explore dance and the performing arts with qualified, nurturing teachers.

Philosophy

We believe that dance training encourages young people to develop a positive self-image as they increase awareness of their physical being. Along with improving coordination skills and developing muscular awareness, dance classes give children the freedom to express themselves through movement.

The highest educational standards are expected from all PMPA staff members. They are lifelong learners who continue to educate themselves through certification programs, teacher-training schools, conferences, and other learning opportunities.

We believe that our success comes as a result of providing solid training and quality service, as well as our underlying belief in the strength of our organization. We have created this handbook to offer our students and their parents a clear understanding of their commitments and responsibility to the school.

We take our roles as a mentors and teachers in your child’s life very seriously. It is our objective to inspire a passion for the art of dance in every child who passes through our doors. In the process, we strive to set the right example and help your child (and you) create memories that will last a lifetime.
