My teaching method is that I base my classes on commencing with a fifteen minute to twenty minute warm up involved strengthing, strengthening and aligning the body in preparation for class. Then commencing with techniqual exercises to get a solid foundation of technique whilst encouraging the student and having fun at the same time. In the last twenty five mintues I will teach a routine for the students to learn which they can perform after a ten classes.
Previously I have been accepted to Ballet Magnificat, one of the only Professional Christian Ballet Company in the World in Jackson, Mississippi within the U.S and it was an incredible experience. I love having the opportunity to perform a Ballet/Contemporary dance at Events, Concerts, Eisteddfods and Community Events within Australia and the world. My most memorable performance was having the opportunity to perform a contemporary/ballet piece at the Sydney Opera House and performing a Piece in New York City to raise the awareness of Child Trafficking. I’ve also had the opportunity to travel to Melbourne and performed a ballet piece at the National Dance Theatre for the National Choreography Competition. I previously enjoyed performing and running Captivated Dance Company for approximately three years and had the opportunity to take the Company on tour to the Sunshine Coast and perform with Machaneh Dance Company.
