Jane has been the founder and director of several calisthenics clubs in the Ballarat area. In 2007 Jane established Studio Arc, a club designed specifically to offer the positive elements that dance classes can offer.
Jane has a background in both classical ballet and calisthenics, and was an accomplished performer in each. She brings these skills to her classes, but offers far more than simply teaching dance techniques. Students and parents appreciate her approach to involving all students in a team, providing opportunities for socialisation and her positive attitude towards everything.
