James Deane (Hip Hop Teacher)
My biggest inspiration are my students. The energy and passion they give me inspires me to create and pushes me to be the best teacher I can for my students. Watch my classes here.
Tracey Wilson (Tap Teacher)
My inspiration as a choreographer/teacher has to be Randy Skinner, who I was lucky enough again to have classes with this year in New York at Steps On Broadway. It’s so much fun to attend his classes and bring back his wonderful tap warm-ups, combinations and routines to the Sydney Dance Company students. Not only is Randy a renowned Broadway choreographer, he is a wonderful teacher – humble, enthusiastic, and never too busy to have a chat after class. Most recently, Randy choreographed the latest revival of 42nd Street which is now playing in London’s West End. Here is a special television performance from The London Palladium.
Melanie Louise (JFH and Hip Hop)
Without a doubt, Michael Jackson is the reason I chose to be a dancer and performer. From the age of four he had me mesmerised as I watched his every move, I studied his artistry, intensity, his love of the stage and his magic. Every time I step on stage there’s always influence from Michael!
