About Pure Heart Dance

Excellence, Dedication, Compassion and Encouragement through dance.

Pure Heart Dance was a dream God placed within Miss Maddy’s heart in 2018. 

Maddy Bosshard is the founder of Pure Heart Dance, and has experienced an incredible life with many triumphs and many heartbreaks. She has travelled the world performing and training as a lead, soloist, ensemble and back-up dancer in many dance styles and has formed a great passion for teaching classical ballet, contemporary and jazz. Miss Maddy has invested her life and heart into the art form of dance and has a great passion for seeing students thrive at Pure Heart Dance. She is known for being able to look at a student and know exactly what they need to improve; whether it be strength work, simple alignment re-adjustment or an entire direction change in their training.

“I believe as people we each have a calling on our life, and I have found mine. At first I wasn’t sure I wanted to run my own training program but after meeting God, He continued to encourage, lead and inspire me to step out and open Pure Heart Dance. Dance doesn’t define who I am but truly I have been transformed by the joy and passion of dance. I have spent my life acquiring the greatest training available to me, it wasn’t easy and required a lot of hard work and discipline. I used my training to give myself an international performing career. I have a natural gift for teaching and love to see lives transformed. My family, love, joy and faith have been fundamental to my success. I love people and I love seeing them flourish and thrive. I am so aware of the pressures that come with pursuing a professional dance career and desire to provide the truth dancers need to truly succeed. I am passionate in not only seeing technique and overall performance ability improve in an individual but I am also very passionate about mentoring young dancers so they are fully prepared for their futures. My heart for this school is to see the dance industry transformed by the next generation of Pure Hearted Dancers”

PHD Culture

Pure Heart Dance thrives on excellence, dedication, compassion and encouragement through dance. We create our culture on Miss Maddy’s belief “just as a flower does not grow overnight, neither do we. Hard work pays off!”.

Individually our passionate dancers strive to achieve their dreams through hard work and healthy mindsets. Collectively we value to be a community that encourages and promotes one another, eliminating comparison and understanding that we are each running our own race.

We focus on appreciating our gifts we have been given whilst continuing to work hard towards improving our weaknesses. We focus on nurturing the pure heart in each individual.
