Previously ‘Wild Child Acting and Dance Studios’, Wild Child Management was originally established in Sydney in 1987 by Ensemble Studios trained actors, Philip Jones and Julie Jones to promote the talented performers emerging from their acting and dance studios at Coogee, Mascot and Plumpton.
Having two of Sydney’s leading agents themselves, Philip and Julie gained experience in, collectively, over fifty TV commercials, numerous TV soaps, TV series, feature films, stage productions, training videos, voice-overs, fashion parades and modelling assignments. Apart from three years of dance training as an acting course subject at Ensemble Studios, Julie attended F.A.T.D. (Federal Association of Teachers of Dancing) classes from an early age and progressed to become a fully qualified teacher in classical ballet, jazz and tap.
Wild Child was registered in Queensland in 1990 after Philip and Julie re-located and established three acting and dance studios in Brisbane where the organisation grew to become one of the most reputable performing arts academies and talent agencies in Queensland.
After almost three decades of teaching acting and dance, Julie & Philip were given a unique opportunity to live and teach on a tropical island. Their daughter, Sarah Jane Jones, decided to open a new school, "SJJ CREATIVE".
Sarah Jane Jones started dancing at the age of 3, training at her parent’s studio, Wild Child Acting and Dance Studios in jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, classical ballet, F.A.T.D. exams and TV, film & stage acting. Sarah has been involved with countless choreography and performance projects for music artists, including Jacob Lee (The Voice), Emily Williams (Australian Idol), Alexa Curtis (The Voice Kids winner), Chance Waters (Universal Music) the Gold Coast Indie Film & Networks, corporate events, functions, Warner Bros Movie World’s Fright Nights, Carnivale & White Chritstmas, Gold Coast Indie 600 V8 Supercars and TV commercials.
Sarah has participated in several international dance workshops in Australia and also trains often in New York City, learning from world class dancers and choreographers, including Jermaine Brown (Christina Aguilera), Candice Brown (Nicole Scherzinger), Anthony Rue II (Madonna, Jay-Z , P.Diddy), Theresa Stone (Lady Gaga's ArtRAVE: The Artpop Ball) Jojo Gomez and many more.
In 2014, Sarah opened her own creative studio, “SJJ CREATIVE” in Loganholme. With over 23 years of experience, Sarah wishes to continue to grow as a choreographer & performer and also pass on her knowledge and love for dance through SJJ Creative, providing students high quality training with inspirational teachers in a positive and supportive dance environment, while offering them many performance opportunities.
