The Palmerston Ballet School was established in 1984 by the Principal Jan Hedenig.
Classes were initially held at Gray Primary School.
In the early days, and due to population growth and dance areas being converted to class rooms, a series of moves took place.
Firstly to the original “Palmerston Library” (1985), then to Driver Primary School (1986), then in 1998, to Driver High School {now Palmerston Senior College}, Rosebery Middle School (2012) and finally to our current home at MacKillop Catholic College Farrar Blvd. Johnston.
