Our Mission

Dance Project Studios aim to revolutionise performance education and cultural boundaries fostering a philosophy that dance is for everyone and without discriminating in terms of gender, ability, age or experience. Naturally, as a long established school, we offer classes at all levels allowing students from as young as 2 years of age to grow and develop as beginners working towards professional standards over time. All that is required from a student is motivation together with a passion for the performing arts.

About Us

At Dance Project Studios (Pembroke, Malta), founded in 2007 by Kristina Ann Schranz and Matthew Bianco, we amalgamate various forms of the performing arts. We place a particular focus on merging various classical dance styles with the latest commercial MTV-style street moves and funky jazz fusions. We offer dance classes in a range of styles of Classical Ballet, Commercial and Jazz alongside examination preparatory classes for Acro Dance, Cecchetti & Legat Ballet, Modern Theatre, Musical Theatre, Street, Spanish Dance and Tap Dance working up to vocational level. Furthermore, we developed the very first and only structured Hip Hop dance programme available in Malta.

Over the years the portfolio of disciplines offered at Dance Project Studios has continued to evolve and currently also includes Acro Dance, Legat System Ballet, Modern Contemporary, Progressing Ballet Technique, Street Dance and a Musical Theatre Programme which covers Vocal, Drama and Musical Theatre Jazz.

We coordinate multiple annual Dance Experiences as a form of cultural exchange. These engaging holiday experiences to international dance workshop festivals and performance events as well as participation in local and world dance competitions are highly rewarding for all participants. In addition, from time to time we also commission the services of industry-leading artists in order to conduct local workshops that further increase the experience value and exposure for our students.

All classes take place out of the professionally equipped and fully air-conditioned Dance Project Studios in Pembroke, Malta.

Having recently graduated from Laine Theatre Arts, London, I must admit that the starting point in my professional training was actually at Dance Project Studios.

DPS was the perfect bridge to my college education. I was guided and supported throughout the auditioning process by all the DPS faculty.

The attention to each student and the community spirit within the school makes it feel like a second home. Every teacher is dedicated to bringing out the very best in each student.

My DPS family will always hold a special place in my hear.

Dance Project Studio made my dream of studying abroad come true and I am now in my final year of studies at London Studio Centre.

DPS exposed me to various styles and gave me several opportunities to perform and compete both locally and internationally. The supportive and passionate faculty gave me the skills and confidence to pursue my passion. I am forever grateful for all their guidance and the sense of family they provided.

College Student

My dance training commenced under the watchful eye of Ms Kristina back in 2007 at the age of 16 when Dance Project Studios had just kicked off.

Having trained in various styles of dance at DPS from Street Jazz to Ballet and with particular guidance from Ms Kristina, I was selected for a 3 year college Diploma in Dance, Voice & the Performing Arts and ISTD teaching degrees from Margaret Howard Theatre College, now Momentum PA in London. 

With a solid and extensive foundation from DPS, and having graduated from MHTC in 2017, I have since performed all around the world from The West End to cruise ships as well as at several prestigious resorts around the world.

DPS undoubtedly enabled me to pursue my performance dreams through excellent teaching practices and the encouraging words of Ms Kristina for which I am eternally grateful.

Joining Dance Project Studios at 13 was undoubtedly the best choice I have made in my life thus far!

DPS taught me to dream big, and I have now graduated from London Studio Centre with a BA Hons in Theatre Dance specialising in Jazz Dance.

I can confidently say that I made it this far thanks to all the faculty at DPS. I am endlessly thankful for all the help, courage and motivation that DPS has given me. I would certainly recommend that anyone with a passion for dance should form part of this family which will enable you to reach your performance goals.
