Hip hip hooray! Today is our 2nd birthday!!
Two years ago, I made the life changing decision to open up Indooroopilly Dance Co. We started with under 20 members in our first year and today I am so proud to say we have reached 115 members! I feel so incredibly grateful to work in a job that I absolutely love to do every single day. I have been given this opportunity to inspire, motivate and support all of our dancers from 2-60+ years. It really is a dream come true.
Let’s rewind back a couple years. I had been working in early childhood education for over 12 years and I had also been doing physie and dance from the age of 4. I wanted to combine my two passions together and continue to inspire people every single day.
When I opened up Indooroopilly Dance Co. I was working full time at a Montessori kindy as well as teaching our APDA classes. As time went on, we kept growing and I knew that there was going to be a time where I had to decide where this was going to go.
At the end of 2016 I made the scary but best decision of my life to resign from my full time job, so I could 100% concentrate on Indooroopilly Dance Co. and offer classes not only to our girls, but to encourage the boys to find their love of dance and music too. It was a hard, challenging, and scary time but I knew it was the right decision and I just had to keep moving forward.
I decided to stop thinking about the unknown and uncertainty and change my way of thoughts. I made the decision to loose the security of a full time job to pursue my dream. I decided to never give up, keep working hard and know that everything was going to work out just the way it is meant to.
Today we now offer classes for our boys, APDA classes for girls from the ages of 2-60+, hip hop classes for the girls and boys, school holiday workshops, APDA ladies classes and stretch and strength classes. I love watching each of our students grow and improve every single week. It is even more special to see the look on their faces when they achieve something they have been working so hard on.
At Indooroopilly Dance Co. we offer a warm, nurturing and encouraging environment for all of our students to strive in. We are all about movement, building confidence, fun and friendships! We aim to empower our students through dance and movement, create an opportunity for lifelong friendships, inspire each other and most importantly dance our hearts out!
At the beginning of 2018 I set myself a goal. Now that we have reached our goal of over 100 members, I am looking forward to the next chapter and what that may bring. My next mission is to find us a suitable studio that will give us even more opportunities that we have now. To make a little home for ourselves and make it our own.
Thank you to our students and families who have been with me since day 1 and always believed in me. Thank you to our new students and families who have recently joined us.
Here’s to a wonder 2018 ahead!
This is only the beginning….
