Drama, Music & Dance Classes in Canberra and Queanbeyan

Lucy Sparkles & Friends Classes

Thank you for your continued support for our small business during this tricky time! All of our teachers are trained musicians, actors and dancers who play real instruments and have a passion for working with children in their early years. Our public drama, music and dance classes in Canberra and Queanbeyan are run by Ginny and Nyssa Sparkles.

Ginny Savage

Ginny Sparkles is the business owner for Canberra and Queanbeyan.

Ginny is passionate about helping small children to express themselves creatively through the performing arts. She believes that by engaging in creative play such as singing, dancing and pretending, small children develop stronger physical, emotional and social skills that help them to relate to each other and the world around them.  Ginny absolutely loves seeing little faces come to life when children are engaged in musical and imaginative play!

Ginny is currently a play therapist at The Canberra Hospital and has been working with young children as a teacher and entertainer for over ten years. She is also a theatre director and dramaturg and has a Postgraduate Diploma of Dramatic Art (Directing) from NIDA and a BA (hons) majoring in Theatre and Film from ANU.

She is currently completing a Masters of Teaching (primary) through Curtin University.


Since graduating from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music Nyssa has worked as a freelance musician. Stage highlights include performing with specialist youth groups Gondwana Choirs and Matriark Theatre.

As a Cabaret artist Nyssa has performed around Australia. In 2019 Nyssa was a Sydney Cabaret Competition finalist and a Sydney Fringe Festival award nominee. In 2021 Nyssa’s family friendly one-woman Cabaret ‘Udderly Fabulous’ won an Emerging Artist Award at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Nyssa particularly loves blowing bubbles, dancing like no one is watching and making music with new and old friends!
