PERFORMANCE TEAM CLASSES
 

Our Performance Classes aim to train dancers for performance work, eisteddfods, public displays and events. We focus on developing high standards in technique, stagecraft, strength, flexibility and confidence - essential for professional performers.

 

It is compulsory that all Performance Team students attend weekly exam classes, and also participate in their Ballet Technique class. This ensures all students' strength and technique remains of a high standard.

 

 

GENERAL / BEGINNER CLASSES
 

Our General Classes are designed for those wanting to enjoy a fun-filled, energetic class. Great for beginners who want the learn the basics of dance, these classes are excellent for fitness,

co-ordination, social activity and confidence building.

 

We have General Classes for various age groups and all participating students are given the opportunity to perform at our end of year showcase.

 

 

EXAM CLASSES

 

Examination Classes are offered in Jazz, Tap, and Classical Ballet through the A.D.A. Syllabi. SJJ Creative encourages students to participate in examinations as these classes are excellent for developing strong technique, flexibility, co-ordination, rhythm, strength, style and confidence. A.D.A. is fully accredited in Queensland.

 

 

SJJ PROJECT 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.
