BODY ELECTRIC DANCE



Operating in the spirit that ‘anyone can dance’, each semester sees 9 troupes of dancers train hard and rehearse a choreographed routine that will be showcased at a public performance in front of an enthusiastic and demonstrative audience of family and friends.

Body Electric Dance is structured into two semesters, with each resulting in a spectacular performance. The classes are jazz based at a beginner/intermediate level. The performances are a frenzy of pulse, rhythm and flair in which the dancers proudly present their show-stopping routines of finely tuned moves in extravagantly designed costumes.

Choreographer and principal teacher Jade Duffy transforms the students into pirouetting, body rolling, jazz dancing extraordinaires. “We’re mainly a bunch of show- offs”, says one dancer in good–humour. What makes Body Electric so special is that you don’t have to be a professional dancer – anyone can participate.”

With an all-encompassing philosophy of dance fun, the popularity of the Body Electric stems from its ability to captivate and embrace people’s desire and passion to move and express themselves like never before.

Brad also enjoys utilising all elements of fitness, to increase your stamina and your overall fitness level. Barre is really great for your core strength, it improves your posture, helps your muscles to work correctly, increases your flexibility, targets every muscle group and is considered a “low injury risk” class.
