2013 BARBARA JAYNE DANCE CENTRE
With only three weeks left of the summer holidays, preparations for the exciting year ahead are already underway. At BJDC, 2013 will begin with an Enrolment Night on the 7th of February with first classes starting on Saturday the 9th of February.
Firstly we would like to wish Zoë Komazec the best of luck on her next adventure to Sydney performing in the Australian Premiere of The Addams Family musical. We would also like to wish Nadia Komazec great success for the next season of Legally Blonde the Musical in Brisbane and Melbourne. 2013 also see's Jessica Voivenel completing her second year at WAAPA and Stephanie Grigg is in the final weeks of performing in A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum alongside Geoffrey Rush, Hugh Sheridan and Magda Szubanski.
BJDC would like to congratulate Bridget Hancock and Jaime Foord for both receiving a merit award for SACE DANCE STAGE 2 in 2012. Both girls received the highest marks in the state gaining a 20. BJDC would also like to congratulate Monica Swayne who has recently finished performing with the Australia Tour of Mary Poppins understudying Mary.
A huge congratulations goes to Cristiano Martino, who has been training with the Australian Ballet School since 2009, for receiving Dux of the School in his fourth and final year. Cristiano was also offered a contract to dance professionally with the Australian Ballet Company. Congratulations!
2012 saw BJDC students gaining extremely high marks in Classical, Jazz and Tap exams. Recently Emily Duhne and Tahlia Tucker were the recipients of a Borovansky Scholarship to financially assist their dance careers. Also Bridget Hancock completed her Borovansky Solo Seal Examination in November last year and passed with a High Distinction. Congratulations Girls!
