About us

Style Academy has been Sydney’s premier performing arts and self-development entity since 1999. Through its relationship with Moda Management – the leading modelling and Acting Agency, Style Academy coached many successful models andactors, including the first Australian curve supermodel – Robyn Lawley, and petite model and Miss World Australia – Ashleigh Francis. Over 4000 students have had Style Academy experience, and we have worked with over 200 schools.

In recent years, we have extended our services to one-on-one counselling and coaching. We have always taken a holistic approach when training our performers, and besides teaching them hands-on industry skills, we also address their cognitive and emotional well-being, mental toughness, and coping mechanisms.  Our founder, Anica Vuckovic Taione, former performer and fashion model, is also a life and executive coachand counsellor. She prides herself in fostering a supportive and nurturing environment in which our clients will feel safe to explore ways to overcome unhelpful thoughts, behaviours, and emotions and realise their passion, strengths, and full potential. Anica uses evidence-based approaches such as cognitive behavioural approach, mindfulness acceptance approach, solution-focused therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. She has experience working with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and personality disorders, facing interpersonal conflicts, life stressors, eating disorders, and addictions. 

Moreover, our group classes offer another window of opportunity to our students, possible career options and help them develop their talent and build new skills. Our programs are recreational and educational and designed to keep the students active and interested while socialising with other students with similar interests. This results in positive, self-esteem-boosting experiences, sense of achievement, and the experience helps shape their overall personality. Furthermore, students benefit from positive relationships with successful industry mentors and share their own stories. The aim is for students to see success as achievable but not without hard work and perseverance.
