Louise Ghiakopian-Dancesport Principal

Louise has a lengthy reputation of providing the highest standard of training in the central North Island along with a warm and friendly approach for both the beginner and seasoned dancer.

90% of competitive successes in the central districts region have been generated by the Regent Dance Studio, now renamed as EasiDance Studio, with wins in the Juvenile, Junior, Adult and Senior age groups both National and International in Ballroom, Latin American and New Vogue. Her pupils, whom she accompanied, also represented New Zealand at the World Youth Champions in Europe.

Louise combines her great experience and a real passion for her style of dance to provide her students with the best possible tuition.

It’s not only what you know, but also how to pass it on and bring out the best in everyone that is important.

Originally trained by Jack Ball, Louise has travelled to Canada, Australia and England to keep up the latest trend and styles and continues to keep updated each year.

Beginner pupils continue to surprise and delight Louise. Evolving from a sometimes timid beginner to become confident and able social dancers.


Gladys Smeaton

After passing her professional qualifications they took over the Wanganui branch of the Regent Dance Studio. On moving to Palmerston North Gladys is teaching at the Regent Dance Studio now renamed as EasiDance Studio.
