HOLIDAYS and personal milestones are often times when big life decisions are made.

That certainly was the case for Hervey Bay dance teachers Bradley Wilmshurst and Candice Willington.

Over the Christmas break, the couple made the decision to pursue their dream of operating their own dance school.

"We were considering moving and were getting offers to teach at different schools Queensland, but then we thought, 'why don't we just open one ourselves?'" Mr Wilmshurst said.

"It was a New Year resolution and we decided to just do it."

And so, the Fraser Coast's newest dance school The League Studios was born.

Currently operating out of a rented space in Yarrilee State School, the school offers a variety of dance styles for all ages.

Styles include ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, acrobatics, contemporary and a tap class for adults.

There is also an option of doing exams.

Despite being young themselves, Mr Wilmshurst and Miss Willington have more than 40 years of dance experience between them.

"We complement each other's styles really well, as I look more after the hip-hop and acrobatics side while Candice specialises more in ballet and contemporary," Mr Wilmshurst said.

"Our goal is to get kids that want to have a career in dance to become audition-ready."

And for boys who have wanted to give dance a shot, The League Studios welcomes you.

"We want to appeal to a masculine market, which is part of the reason we called it The League Studios," Mr Wilmshurst said.

"League is meant to be the best of the best, and makes it sound more like a sport."

In term three, Mr Wilmshurst and Miss Willington plan to move The League Studios to a permanent location.
