SBC Dance Intensive 2023

 On the 28th of April 2023, St Brigid’s College welcomed dance industry professionals to the dance studio to inspire our up and coming dancers from our College dance course from Years, 9 to 12. Our students were given the opportunity to work with some of Australia’s leading dance professionals.

The instructors included Kenisha Yam , Floeur Alder and physios from Perth Dance Physios.

Kenisha is a Perth based performer, who has achieved an Advanced Diploma of Performing Arts from Village Nation. Her choreography is much sought after across Australia and is considered a rising talent in the industry.

The other dance talent on the day, Floeur, is an internationally renowned performer whose credits include a Bachelor of Performing Arts from WAAPA and she is also a Churchill Fellow. Floeur has studied with some of the leading dance companies in Europe including Rambert Dance Company and has worked with some of the leading Australian choreographers such as Leigh Warren and Dancers, Tasdance (working with over 20 choreographers), Strut dance, Ochre Contemporary Dance Company – inclusive of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous dancers and NT Dance Company and Chrissie Parrott. She is currently an independent artist creating dance work for festivals and performances across Australia.

Also imparting their knowledge to our students on the day were, Perth Dance Physio is an elite dance physio based in Perth. They are the supporting health team of the WA Ballet and work with physios including the Australian Ballet Health Team. Their focus of the day was on strength, alignment and flexibility.

It was a privilege to have these professionals on our campus for the day. Our students not only learned invaluable information about their own dance journey but skills in choreography, anatomy and health care for dancers. We look forward to providing more of these unique opportunities for our dance course students in the future.

St Brigid’s allowed me to find new opportunities and ways to achieve my goals which were outside of the school’s set curriculum. This game me the drive to push myself to amazing opportunities and to do the things that have lead me to where I am today, “said Kyra.
