Dio leads the way in Performing Arts for young women. If your daughter has a passion for the arts she couldn't find a better home to foster her talents. Our exceptional team ensure all girls have the opportunity to experience the power of performance first hand through specialist teaching in Music, Singing, Dance and Drama as well as itinerant tutoring.
