About NPS

Nadia's Performance Studio was opened by Nadia Vella-Taranto in 2004.

Nadia Vella-Taranto studied dance, drama and singing from a young age and has always had a passion for teaching. After graduating with Distinction in a Bachelor of Arts (Acting for Stage and Screen), and studying on a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Drama, London; Nadia went on to open the doors of Nadia’s Performance Studio to now many students and their families.

 Over the years, Nadia’s Performance Studio has grown to become a large and successful performing arts school. Qualified teachers run classes in most styles of dance, singing, music, drama and acrobatics. The studio is proud of the excellent results achieved in eisteddfods and exams every year, and the high standard of our entertaining end of year Concerts!

 The large and professional studio was officially opened by Mayor of Fairfield City, Mr. Nick Lalich.

 Dancers from Nadia’s Performance Studio, along with their families, have travelled to USA, Europe and interstate on dance tours. 

 Whilst professional and quality teaching is a must in all classes at Nadia’s Performance Studio, the fun and family environment created is why so many people are drawn to the school. There are classes for students of all abilities and interests.

 In 2012, Nadia's Performance Studio hosted SYDNEY STARS ON SHOW eisteddfod for the first time. This professional and friendly competition weekend for Sydney-based dance schools is held annually in the last weekend of October. 

 In 2014, Nadia's Performance Studio became an Angelina Ballerina Academy and added Robbie Kmetomi (the first season winner of So You Think You Can Dance) and Classical Ballet Soloist Jennifer Musgrave to the NPS faculty.

 And now we are thrilled to announce that Nadia and her husband Jordan Taranto are about to launch a fresh talent agency; TARANTO MANAGEMENT. Using their professional knowledge, experience and contacts, it is their aim to provide an ethical bridge into the performing arts industry. 

 It is Nadia’s personal philosophy that anything can be achieved; with belief, hard work and support. Nadia’s Performance Studio has become what it is today simply because of that; a dream for creating a family oriented performing arts studio, a belief that anything is possible, amazing support from the families of the studio and plenty of hard work along the way!

 Dream, Believe, Achieve is the motto of Nadia’s Performance Studio.
