JDW’s teaching staff are the reason Jenina’s Dance Workshop remains one of the most recognised schools in Hobart.
We believe teaching students knowledge and understanding of dance is just as important as the technique and steps themselves, which helps to create a balance between the mind and the body. We aspire for our choreography to be fresh, innovative and captivating and provide an emphasis on positive reinforcement and encouragement. JDW's teaching staff are 100% passionate about what they do and aim to give each student their own personal dance journey.
In 2020, we launched our 'REGULAR GUEST TEACHER' program. We found a gap in the training between Tasmania and Mainland Australia and established a connection with various choreographers from around Australia to frequent JDW to enhance training of our students and inspire our staff.
