Judy Robinson, Principal, likes all students to gain valuable experience in dance without losing the fun aspect.
All students can dance at the Annual JMD Concert as well as other opportunities to perform in various public performances, eisteddfods, competitions as well as cheerleading.
Many students have gone on to perform overseas, become qualified dance teachers and have gained work in the dance industry.
"We believe while we keep the fun in dance, our students will continue to enjoy it"

Students learn routines to the latest pop songs in a fast paced, energetic and fun class. Technique is fundamental to this dance style which focuses on isolating various parts of the body while developing coordination, strength, flexibility and rhythm.
This class lets you do just that while developing a sense of rhythm, a good listening ear along with co-ordination and some fancy footwork. Students learn how to produce various types of sound by incorporate timing, syncopation and percussion with the controlled use of three parts of the feet (toe, ball and heel).
This traditional art combines dance, mime and music to tell a story or evoke a mood. With emphasis on the method and execution of movement, ballet is an excellent class to help students develop discipline, posture, alignment, technique and grace.
This street style of dance is rapidly growing in popularity. Students learn how to keep their feet grounded, chest down and body loose to enable them to alternate between hitting the beat and riding through a beat. No better way for kids to jump around and burn off that excess energy.
Students who like more of a challenge and are interested in performing and competition are encouraged to join the Performance Group for tap and jazz. New routines are learnt, practiced, polished and performed at eisteddfods and shows. Call Judy if you are interested on 0408 551 899.
