A prominent Sydney dance teacher accused of grooming children for sex and possessing child pornography is facing six new charges.
Grant Davies, 39, who ran a dance studio on Bibby Street in Chiswick, was arrested on Friday after police allegedly uncovered a large amount of child porn and evidence of grooming on a computer.
At Burwood Local Court on Wednesday, Davies' solicitor Phillip Gibson said he had just been handed six more charges against his client, bringing the total number to 10.
The charges are believed to be more serious in nature.
Mr Gibson says Davies, who is set to appear in court via video link later on Wednesday, plans to apply for bail.
Davies ran a dance studio in Sydney's inner west with his sister Rebecca Davies.
They have trained performers for hit productions, including Billy Elliot.
Among the charges Davies faces are two counts of possessing and disseminating child abuse material and grooming two girls aged 13 and 14 for unlawful sexual activity.
