Moving with the times
South West dance students will be able to improve their choreography and dance techniques at week-long workshops in the next two weeks.
Taught by interstate dancers, there will be three workshops for junior (six to 10 year olds), intermediate (over 10) and advance (over 13) dancers.
Organiser and Jazz Attacks Studio principal Vicki Newell said she felt it was important to update the dance knowledge of students in the region.
“I just want to try to increase the dance knowledge and improve choreography skills,” Ms Newell said.
“It is important to keep our students updated with the changing times and new dance techniques.
“Most of the students here will have to move over east to pursue a career and it’s important that they know what is going on in the industry there.”
Ms Newell has brought in four dancers from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with experiences ranging from appearing on television commercials and the popular dance show So You Think You Can Dance, a choreographer of an all boys dance crew and a back-up dancer for international artist Kelly Rowland.
The teachers include two former Busselton residents Austin Chandler, who is studying at the Brent Street Performing Arts School in Sydney, and Belinda Roberts who has performed for the AFL and the Footy Show.
The intermediate and advance workshops will be held from January 10 to 14 and the junior workshop the following week will include lessons in a wide range of styles.
