We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Redland Dance as the exclusive dance provider for the Moreton Bay Colleges for 2017 and beyond.
Catering for both girls and boys, we are excited to share with our community news of this exciting new partnership.
Directors John and Rebecca Clarke acquired Redland Dance in 2014 and are committed to providing students of all ages and ability the opportunity to fulfil their potential in a safe and all-inclusive environment.
Offering an extensive range of classes including Kinderballet™, Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Musical Theatre, Voice, Contemporary, Progressing Ballet Technique, Pilates and Xtend Barre.
Both John and Rebecca possess a wealth of experience with world-class training and extensive professional experience.
John brings the knowledge and experience from his time in the London Musical Theatre industry, performing in Grease, Fame, Starlight Express and Saturday Night Fever.
He held the position of Resident Choreographer for Saturday Night Fever and Queen’s We Will Rock You prior to staging the production of We Will Rock You in Melbourne, Las Vegas and Cologne as Associate Choreographer.
He has worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s company on the productions of Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Rebecca studied professionally from the age of 11 at Elmhurst Ballet School and the Royal Ballet School in the UK.
Her career saw her dance in many aspects of the industry including cabaret, television, cruise ships and stage shows which took her all over the world.
A serious injury brought about an abrupt end to her career, and saw Rebecca retrain in the Pilates method.

Drama and Speech and Communication
Moreton Bay College recognises that effective communication skills are fundamental to success in all facets of life. There are two extra-curricular programmes at the College that are designed to develop clear, confident and expressive communication skills.
Speech and Communication
Lessons are taken individually or in pairs or trios and focus on clear speech, vocal range, text interpretation, public speaking, interpersonal communication skills, presentation skills and performance. Students can also choose to develop individual acting skills. Students are provided performance opportunities throughout the school year in a variety of forums. Additionally students can elect to take examinations to benchmark their development with Trinity Guidhall or the Australian Music Examinations Board. Lessons can take place during class time on a rotational timetable. More information can be found here.
Group Drama classes are offered after school from Years 1 to 10. Various dramatic forms are explored such as creative movement, improvisation, mime, clowning, play-building, process and collage drama and play production. Presentation opportunities are provided throughout the school year. An inquiry based approach to learning is valued with a focus on process, not just product. During lessons students practise a variety of appropriate social skills in a safe and supportive environment. More information can be found here.
Both programmes are conducted by qualified and experienced tutors. For further information about either programme please contact the coordinators -
Speech & Communication: Ms Annette Stoddart
