Contemporary (Viv Rogis) – Vivienne’s contemporary dance class draws on modern dance techniques such as Humphrey/Limon, Graham and Horton, with influences from her cross cultural work in Japan and Taiwan. The style she brings to the current generations of dancers springs from Australian modern dance pioneer Elizabeth Cameron Dalman with whom Vivienne has worked for the last 17 years and her long longstanding work with Ruth Osborne at QL2 Dance. Her class has an emphasis on breath and breadth of movement & is a structured series of exercises that develop ease, flow & joy in movement with a deep understanding of alignment and posture.
Ballet & Babyballet- (Viv Rogis) – Viv’s ballet class is an open class (not in a particular syllabus style) designed to foster a deep understanding of correct posture & alignment as well as enjoyment of classical dance as a beautiful and powerful way of moving. Viv’s training in ballet was in the RAD syllabus as a young person and then under Lucette Aldous at The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts at Edith Cowan University.
Babyballet &Contemporary – (Ashlee Bye) – Ashlee is a caring and dedicated young teacher who will bring fun and creativity alive for you and your child. A graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, she comes from a youth dance background, working with QL2 in Canberra firstly as a young participant and then as a professional artist. Ashlee has extensive teaching, choreography and performance experience in projects located, both in Australia and overseas. She currently collaboratively devises the ongoing dance program at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar and has delivered workshops to students all around the Melbourne metropolitan region with various performance outcomes.
Tap & Jazz (Jodie Greenwood) – Jodie Greenwood brings a wealth of experience in teaching, performing & choreography of Tap & Jazz to her classes. As the director of Upstage Dance Academy for 10 years she has been teaching young people for many years and is passionate about dance. Her great routines are a joy to dance.
Hip Hop – (Harley) A high energy class that develops strength and fitness alongside fantastic Hip Hop Moves! Harley is trained in Jazz, Ballet and Tap, as well as many “street” styles of dance, such as Pop & Lock, Funk, Break, New Jack Swing, and Hip Hop.
Singing – (Jennie Mortimer) Jennie works on all styles of voice from Contemporary through to popular/ jazz/musicals and light classics. In her vocal classes she works on; vocal technique, harmony work solo and group pieces & presentation. It is important for students to be able to perform different genres of vocal music so they become versatile performers. Jennie also incorporates the Estill technique into classes which helps students understand how their voices work. Most of all she makes singing a fun learning experience!!!
Strength & Conditioning – (Gabrielle Davidson) This strength and conditioning class is designed to support the dancers work in the studio. Gabby’s aim is to bring awareness to, and strengthen the basic core muscles around the dancers hips, upper backs, calves and feet and abdominals. She also hopes the class will give the dancers a good guide for stretching and how to incorporate some of the exercises into a regular warm up for any class. Gabby is bringing together her experience as a dancer and her knowledge as a physio to help support young dancers in their efforts to improve their technique and allow their dance quality to shine through. Following a successful 10 year ballet career in the Australian Ballet she retired to study physiotherapy and has continued to work with elite dancers at the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School, the Australian Ballet Company and the Australian Ballet School, as well as honing her craft in hospitals and private practice.
