Dance Teaching

I love the feeling of dancing. To me there is nothing that beats swinging, gliding, hopping, throwing and sliding my body around a room. Teaching gives me an opportunity to share this joy with other people!

I began teaching dance in 2009 and have worked across community, school, university, corporate, and dance studio contexts. I have taught in urban and regional Australia with very young children through to people in their 80s. I have specialist expertise in dance for active older adults and operate under the firm belief that dancing can be inclusive of everyone. My teaching credits include Queensland University of Technology, Queensland Ballet, Raw Dance Company, Phluxus2 Dance Collective, and a residency with Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council. My teaching repertoire includes:

  • contemporary dance,
  • ballet,
  • Broadway jazz,
  • creative dance, and
  • daggy dancing.

I have only been to one class but there was a strong feeling of “togetherness” that made being in the group fun. Anja created a feeling of camaraderie and inclusion. She was generous and giving.
