Today’s blog is part of our series about getting to know a bit more about the amazing people that work here at Dance Sensations! This week we’re introducing Miss Josie, who has been a part of the Dance Sensations Family for 16 years. Miss Josie is both a dance teacher and a student and takes troupe, ballet and a range of different class styles every week. Read on below to learn a bit more about Miss Josie.
I do a bit of everything here at DS! I teach about 12 dance classes a week, which include both troupe and recreational dance classes as well as working on admin at the front desk.
I started dancing in 2004 in jazz tiny tots at Dance Sensations when I was just 2 years old. I’ve taken dance classes at DS ever since and it’s been so amazing to grow up surrounded by such a positive support system. I started teaching in about 2016 and now I teach recreational and troupe classes along with a soloist!
I love all styles of dance for different reasons! When I feel like expressing my feelings I love lyrical or contemporary because its really freeing. I also love to take Jazz and Hip hop because they’re so much fun and I love vibing with my friends.
I love making connections with kids throughout the year while seeing so much improvement and watching them become more confident. The staff I get to work with are so amazing and this job provides amazing opportunities that I would never get to experience if I wasn’t part of the DS team!
I’m in my first year of uni at the moment doing science education and I love learning in all areas of life. I also love the beach and travelling as well as the simple things like hanging out with friends and of course I love my crazy family!
