Principal Profile

Jane Moore is the Academy Founder, Principal & Classical Teacher. Jane studied under the late Kathleen Gorham, one of Australia’s greatest ballerinas, Martin Rubenstein of the Borovansky Company RAD Major Examiner, Tina Stuart, current RAD Examiner and Eileen Tasker also of the Borovansky Company

A qualified, RAD Teacher with a registered RAD Teaching Certificate and over 40 years teaching experience, Jane also taught with Ms Gorham at the National Ballet School

Established in 1987 the Academy has earned an enviable industry reputation with students regularly auditioning and being accepted into the Australian Ballet School. More recently, Emily Bray was accepted into the Royal Ballet School London and Isabella Wagar has accepted a place at the Dutch National Ballet Academy’s Traineeship Program, both positions received from their success at the prestigious Prix De Lausanne. 

One of Jane’s proudest moments was in 2008, sitting in the Sydney Opera House to watch Eloise Fryer dancing ‘Little Swans’ in Graeme Murphy’s ‘Swan Lake’, it was the first time Jane had seen one of her students dance as a professional dancer with the Australian Ballet Company. 

An equally exhilarating experience was sitting in the audience watching Mia Heathcote Clara along with a number of other Academy students who also performed in Graeme Murphy’s ‘The Nutcracker – Clara’s Story’.

Jane was greatly influenced by her adored teacher Miss Kathleen Gorham and remembers her amazing acting skills, technical teaching and demand for total dedication to hard work, values that Jane endeavours to instil in her students today.

Jane’s favourite dancers include French dancer Silvie Guillam and Darcy Bussell from the Royal Ballet in London.

Jane is passionate about ballet and endeavours to inspire her students to respect its beauty and precision.  The new studio has fulfilled one of her lifelong dreams but her ambition is for her students, many of whom she hopes to see dance and perform professionally in the future. 

The ongoing successful achievements of Jane Moore Academy students at Eisteddfods, Dance Competitions and Auditions suggest that Jane’s aspirations for her students will continue to be realised for years to come.
