TAP DIRECTOR, MUSICAL THEATRE, BALLET & NATIONAL TEACHER & ADULT TAP

 

Miss Jan started dance at a very young age and completed her Ballet exams with Miss Elsie Seguss in the city. At the same time, she performed nightly on the Theatre Royal as a regular Ballet girl where she learned all facets of dance and Musical Theatre from the Ballet Mistress at the Theatre Royal and from visiting entertainers from overseas.

 

Miss Jan owned and ran her very successful dance studio in Wynnum for 65 years, and had many students go on to have very successful careers in the Musical Theatre world as well as in international Ballet Companies such as the Netherlands Ballet.

 

She entered her students in exams where most, if not all, obtained the highest marks possible, and her performing groups were holders of the Aggregate Trophy at the Wynnum Eisteddfod for over 15 years in a row!

 

Miss Jan has a vast repertoire which includes Tap, Ballet, Jazz, National, Lyrical, Contemporary, Cabaret and Musical Theatre.

 

She never stopped learning or growing as a teacher, and it has always been something she's passionate about - passing her knowledge on to a younger generation of dancers and instilling a love of dance as well as ethics and a desire to bring out the best in children through dance.
