SJJ PROJECTS CLASSES
SJJ Project classes are used for Sarah Jane Jones’ choreography, performance and video projects inside and outside of SJJ Creative. This class time is used for development of performance based routines in preparation for video projects, corporate and/or commercial events.
Dancers inside and outside out of SJJ Creative who are selected to attend this class will vary depending on the project at hand.
Dance / Choreo combinations for the Open Performance Group can also be taught during this time. Learning combination choreography is important for keeping the dancers mind active (being able to pick up choreography quickly) which is necessary when auditioning for dance work (shows, musicals etc). All Open students are welcome to attend when these dance / choreo combinations are being taught. However, dancers wishing to be involved in the ‘end of class’ video, it is a pre-requisite that students know the choreography to be selected.
