THE POSE PA STORY
Pose Performance Academy was started in 2005 by Fiona Jurd-Smith after a successful career herself as a professional dancer, actor and choreographer. Fiona’s dream was to open a school that had something to offer to everybody – for the person who wants to come once a week for fun and fitness to the dedicated performer who wants to learn a variety of performance styles and be pushed to an elite level.
From the first year, the word spread that POSE was the place to be and enrolments have grown from a small handful in 2005 to just over 300 in 2011. In 2009 POSE moved from school halls in Matraville and Maroubra to our current factory in Botany which undertook a renovation to include two studios equipped with fully sprung floors, mirrors and Barres. And as the studio grew so did the classes that were offered.
POSE now offers classes in RAD Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Acrobatics, Hip Hop, Ready Set Dance and Ready Set Ballet for pre-schoolers, Acting, and Singing. Miss Fiona has worked with many of Australia’s top choreographers and her professional career took her around Australia and the world performing in theatres and entertainment centres. It is the policy of POSE to only employ professional, dedicated teachers, most of which have worked or are still working in the industry.
