Student Successes & Testimonials

I first began private coaching sessions with Andrew Lyons when I was around 10 years old. Today I am an Australian Ballet School graduate and a professional dancer & artist with Queensland Ballet Company. Put simply, Andrew is an integral part of where I am today. Andrew not only imparts to his students highly developed technical and artistic skills, he instills in them discipline, determination, passion and drive.

Every student of this art form is going to encounter obstacles and challenges between themselves and their end goals. I can say honestly that Andrew’s guidance and mentorship have equipped me to navigate the sometimes daunting journey of the young professional artist.

Be prepared to work hard, be prepared to learn but more importantly be prepared to be inspired. Andrew Lyons is world class training.

Andrew Lyons has been one of the most influential and pivotal classical ballet teachers in my fifteen years of study. Working with him has always been a great pleasure for me. I, along with countless other dancers, have benefited greatly from Mr Lyons’ unique ability to interweave highly developed technique with the integral (and often forgotten) artistic elements of classical ballet training.

Mr Lyons coached me for the majority of my Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Vocational Graded classical ballet examinations, all of which I received a score of 90% or above. I also received a mark of 100% with High Distinction for one of my exams, a result I strongly attribute to his coaching.

My parents had heard about a male dance coach named Andrew Lyons. I had also heard of his extremely exacting standards so I was nervous when my parents arranged for me to attend private coaching with Andrew for my Classical Ballet and Contemporary dance studies at the age of 9.

I soon realized that whilst Andrew is very exacting he is also a warm and nurturing teacher. Like many other of Andrews students I passed all of my Royal Academy of Dance examinations with distinction under his watchful eye. A high point for me was winning my Classical Section of the McDonalds Performing Arts Challenge with a beautiful classical solo choreographed and coached by Andrew.
