Learning is never-ending and a continual process that reveals an exciting change in others and yourself! I like to include a communicational element of how something felt. When a student is encouraged to share this with their teachers, when completing a skill, exercise or technique, it allows us to further personally tailor our teaching style, encouragement and difficulty level for the student. Also, no question is a silly question! Asking leads to learning, which leads to respectful actions that instigate safe learning environments allowing a student to truly be free and reach their full potential!
I am an artist and performer who recently graduated from a Bachelor of Musical Theatre. As I have a degree in Musical Theatre I can provide lessons in singing, monologue work and audition techniques as well as dance. I've also trained with the National Ballet St Kilda and Jason Colemans Ministry of Dance. I completed VCE Dance in year 12 and also coached, taught and mentored students from the 2015 and 2016 graduate pool in their VCE year after I had finished school. These sessions involved choreographic problem solving and dance and movement exercises that help generate movement and style that is individual to the dancer as they developed their solos for assessments.
Furthermore, I have also coached Skipping/jump rope.
If a session needs to be rescheduled or you are unable to attend please let me know 24 hours prior to the lesson and I'll be happy to organise a solution that suits you, otherwise, if contact is not made 24 hours prior to the lesson a 50% payment of the class fee will apply.
All elements of performance connect with dance. Breathing helps you engage with emotional movement and therefore express a story as you act through dance. To me, it is a circle of skills that continues to flow and affect each other therefore bettering the performer. I am excited to share insights into what I have learnt throughout my Bachelor with those of the younger generation. I also believe that learning and developing new skills is something that never ends. As an artist, I am committed to continued engagement in weekly classes at the Space Dance & Arts Centre here in Melbourne. Finishing VCE dance was a huge achievement for me and it happened to be my highest scoring subject with a raw score of 37. This year performed in a digitally live-streamed film titled 'Our Own Island' with Transit Dance as a member of Origins Dance Company. Being part of a contemporary company after 3 years of musical theatre training was an awesome challenge that I am so happy I embarked upon. Other achievements include graduating from my musical theatre degree in a regional town, as well as the many performances and professionals I was able to work with. In 2019 I had some of my poetry published with Why Not YMCA and this year I am currently a volunteer writer with Bean Recordings. Generating a cabaret with fellow students was a university milestone however that I will never forget. I successfully performed this self collaboratively written Cabaret titled Chaos with my friends in Melbourne where I performed my first live slam poetry reading. The same year I completed this Cabaret (2019) I was also selected at uni for a new performance work to be performed at the Ballarat Begonia Festival. Ariel Songs was an exploration of the final Shakespeare Play The Tempest. I sang in this show using elements of my 3 years of Classical Vocal Training as well as my contemporary voice training too. It was an amazing opportunity to learn new work perform and engage with an audience and feature as a part of the beautiful flower festival. In 2018 I also sang backing vocals for Zoy Frankos at the Ballarat Business awards.
