Do you want to be a dance education leader?

You've come to the right place

I’m Elena Lambrinos and I’m here to disrupt dance

I’ve got a PhD in dance education, over 15years dance teaching experience, and I have operated a super successful dance studio for 10 years and counting. More importantly, I see and do things a little differently.

I equip forward thinking dance studio owners and teachers with the tools to succeed in a competitive and modern market. Get ready to break with outdated stereotypes and do away with dusty traditions – together we’re going to revolutionise your teaching and your studio. 


With Disrupt Dance on your side, you’ll be armed with the latest developments in dance education research and a toolkit of tried and tested strategies that will build you a reputation for inclusion and excellence and make you stand out from the crowd. We’re talking progressive dance pedagogy and powerful business strategy that will get you seeing your studio in a whole new light.

Professional development for forward-thinking studio owners


  • Are you a highly competent and experienced teacher and studio owner who wants to be inspired and challenged?


  • Do you want to uplevel your studio by providing more enriching and inclusive experiences for your students and teachers?


  • Do you want to stand out as the most professional and reputable studio in your area?


  • Are you sick of the lack of quality dancer teacher training or bored with fluffy, cookie-cutter approaches to studio business development?

    If you’ve found yourself saying yes more than once, then get ready for professional development opportunities like you’ve never seen before. Disrupt Dance is for progressive, inclusive and switched-on individuals who know and own their impact. So if you’ve been put on this earth to make a difference to people’s lives – to change our world for the better – then it’s time to Disrupt Dance.

“I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Elena for several years. I have been so impressed with all that she has to share with dance educators and studio owners that I invited her to present at my annual Leap ’N Learn conferences. Her message for all attending was invaluable information that made each and every one, no matter their level of experience, a better educator when they went back into their classrooms. Elena has a gift for seeing the big picture and for understanding people. She also has the Ph.D. research to back up her message. I love her candor and highly recommend that every dance educator listen and learn from her.”

Disrupt Dance acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the custodians of the stolen land on which I research, write, dance and create.


Sovereignty was never ceded – always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
