Private Coaching

Nothing can replace one on one coaching in the dance arena. Many young artists now seek out private coaching for; exam & competition preparation (solos and groups), auditions and audition videos, choreography & mentoring. Andrew has a proven results based track record in the successful coaching of young dancers in all of these disciplines.

Small Group Coaching

Coaching in small groups can also be highly effective. Andrew Lyons also offers coaching to small groups (maximum of 4). This also offers cost sharing opportunities to parents.

Specialised Coaching for Male Dancers

Classical and Contemporary Dance are NOT the same for male and female dancers. Many steps in the classical repertoire for example are performed exclusively by male dancers. It is very important that every male student has a male teacher in some part of their weekly class schedule. Andrew offers specialised one on one coaching for the male dancer.

Pas de Deux/ Partnering

The ability to partner is a whole entire technique and skill all by itself and requires years of study to ensure it looks effortless (and is above all safe!). For male dancers the ability to partner well can be a career maker or breaker. Understanding the female component of what is required for a successful Pas De Deux performance is also a specialised skill. Andrew Lyons brings with him years of partnering experience having performed Pas De Deux in dozens of ballets and contemporary works on the professional stage.

Choreography

Anyone with basic dance training can string steps together. The ability to choreograph a piece that is powerful and showcases the dancer’s individual abilities takes experience and instinct. Many of the pieces Andrew has choreographed over the years have been singled out for their professional craftsmanship, polish & musicality helping to position the student in the winning line up.

Adjudication

Andrew has adjudicated for several eisteddfods and competitions and is available as a freelance dance adjudicator.

Adult Ballet Classes

Andrew is available for adult ballet classes for individuals or groups. Levels offered are from beginners all the way through to advanced.

Professional Private Company Viewings

Andrew organises regular visits for his private coaching students to view classes and rehearsals with professional companies such as The Australian Ballet.

“I believe that there is much more involved in preparing a student for an exam, competition, audition or, for the serious student, a career in professional dance than simply learning, practising and rehearsing the steps...”

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.
