Our History

From running a couple of classes per week out of a school hall, into one of the largest Dance Studio groups in Australia - this is our story.

MarShere was established in 1981 by Mark & Sheryl O'Donoghue at a school hall in Burwood Heights, Melbourne. From its first class, they have since developed a system of tuition based on family and caring. In having a family themselves, it allowed them to develop a special formula for not only the individual, but for the entire family.

What has made MarShere so successful is that this business is based on the three basic reasons why people dance: to learn, exercise, socialise. This focus that Mark and Sheryl have created has turned MarShere into one of the largest Dance Studio groups in Australia. Mark and Sheryl call it their "extended family".

Why MarShere? - "Mark & Sheryl"

Today, their aim is to take MarShere Dance Studios to a new level - to make dancing something that the whole family can do, and enjoy together.

As Mark and Sheryl say: "No matter what your ability, the hardest step is always the one to walk through the door!

What our students have to say about us
“The moment I walked in at the desk, I was so well taken care of! I had an absolutely great time and I am looking forward to coming back! Everyone was very friendly and encouraging! I have already told several friends who may come along in the future! Simply wonderful! Thank you!”
Emily Arbour
MarShere Nunawading student
“We were smiling from ear to ear the entire time! We thought it might be awkward at first, but from the beginning, the fast paced and friendly environment made us forget all about that and really get involved. The staff and other customers were so much fun!”
Andrew Smilie
MarShere Cranbourne student
"My daughter (12) started dancing here, without knowing a soul and now she is part of their family. She loves going to dancing and her excitement for the dances, is inspiring."
