What a great experience I had being involved as a Fairy in the Christmas Pantomine 2021. Dale Pengelly was a great mentor and I learnt so much from him and the professional cast. I made lots of new friends and had a really fun time at rehearsals. The show had lots of energy, lots of fun and lots of audience interaction and laughs. Thank you. Sarah (16yrs) July 2022

Dale taught the Junior and Intermediate classes for the BPAC Tap Scholarships in 2022 and some of the greatest Tap Teachers in Qld history were in attendance watching the classes. Everyone LOVED the classes Dale prepared and gave on the day

Thankyou for an absolutely stellar performance last night at Emerald Town Hall. So many phenomenal moments, and your "Ethel" stories were amazing. You reminded me why I got into Musical Theatre and have inspired me to get back into performing and doing what I love. Thankyou for sharing your stories and talent, such a fantastic show! Break a leg for the rest of your tour!

Thankyou for coming out to Emerald and providing such a fun workshop for the kids! My daughter loved it. Your show on Friday night was so entertaining and both my husband and really enjoyed watching. Cheers!

Dale Pengelly taught 2 Masterclasses for our Combined Schools Junior and Senior age-groups at BPAC (Brisbane Performing Arts Challenge) in 2018. He delivered beautifully prepared workshops focussing on age-appropriate and current Musical Theatre repertoire. The senior group were taught an entire rep. piece from CHICAGO - The Musical and had an absolute ball learning the nuances and technique behind the famous Fosse choreography. I highly recommend Dale as a Teacher/Coach for performers of all ages and genders.

“How lucky can you get”

I have been a big fan of Dale, well forever!
The performer that I have admired and adored is now my singing and dancing teacher. 
I have gone from singing/shouting in tune with little to no confidence to now getting up and performing in musicals and singing solo to an audience.
The journey that Dale has and is taking me on is nothing short of amazing. Not only is my voice getting stronger and sounding more beautiful every lesson but I am learning how to perform the songs I sing. Find the character, find the phrasing and truly deliver a song so I get the emotional reaction from the audience that I want.
For me that is the big difference between learning to sing and learning to perform the song and Dale gives me both of those lessons.
He has given me the confidence and ability to do something that I have wanted to do all my life.
There’s no judgement from him and his patience, kindness and commitment to helping me sing the songs I love is beyond measure. 
Lessons are so much fun and there are certainly a lot of laughs along the way.
All I can say is if your dream is to sing then Dale will get you there. 
With love Rachel 

"Throughout the months my son was taught by Dale Pengelly, I watched his confidence grow and his technique improve immeasurably. Dale’s positive, professional approach and industry insights ensured my son was perfectly prepared for his university audition with the nuances of every gesture having been considered and rehearsed. Dale’s beautiful voice and intimate knowledge of dance technique meant he could demonstrate everything he was teaching in a clear, comprehensive manner. I strongly recommend Dale as a teacher for all aspects of musical theatre"
