Since its inception Thirroul Academy has grown to be the largest privately owned academy in the Illawarra.

A message from Ruth and Barney:

“We are seasoned arts educators with over 45 years teaching experience between us. We attribute our success to the fact that we have a genuine passion for music, dance and drama, we love the art forms and wish to share them with other people.

Our passion coupled with the fact that we have had an extensive career in Performing Arts and Arts Education has enabled us to create programs that work and lead a motivated professional team of tutors with relevant qualifications and industry experience. We recognize talent when we see it, and when we see it we hire it. All our tutors have Working With Children Check clearance.
