Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - COURSES AND CLASSES -

LED by di­rec­tor Charisse Par­nell, The Dance Col­lec­tive is one of Perth’s premier dance train­ing cen­tres and per­for­mance com­pa­nies.

Charisse and a pas­sion­ate team of ex­pe­ri­enced chore­og­ra­phers pro­vide more than 80 classes in a huge range of dance styles, as well as weekly yoga classes to help re­lax, re­store and up­lift the mind and body.

“If you loved TV show So You Think You Can Dance, you will see a clear sim­i­lar­ity in the style of­fered by The Dance Col­lec­tive,” she said.

“Our ethos strongly fo­cuses on build­ing con­fi­dence, im­prov­ing tech­ni­cal train­ing and mak­ing so­cial con­nec­tions.”

The Dance Col­lec­tive has a large num­ber of boys-only classes in hiphop, break­danc­ing, con­tem­po­rary and jazz and caters for stu­dents from five years old to adults.

“Our old­est dancer cur­rently is 57 and she is one of most ded­i­cated and stand out per­form­ers,” Charisse said.

“I love that we have so many older peo­ple want­ing to come dance be­cause they may have missed out in their ear­lier years.”

The Dance Col­lec­tive is renowned for its ex­cep­tional end-of-year show­cases and con­certs at Crown Theatre.

Its pro­fes­sional dancers work with some of Perth’s best event com­pa­nies and have pre­vi­ously per­formed with Guy Se­bas­tian, Jes­sica Mauboy and The Veron­i­cas.
