Jennifer Craddock - Director
With a successful dance career under her belt and over 20 years of teaching, Jennifer Craddock understands the dance world inside and out. From rubbing shoulders with the Minogue sisters, to partying on stage with Marcia Hines, Jen has worked with some of the industry’s best!
Now her love for dance extends to her students. Jennifer is also a trained Pilates Instructor, allowing her to share her knowledge of the industry and passion for healthy movement. To Jen, dance is more than a beautiful art form, it is a way of life! A way to establish life-long friendships, promote good health and most importantly, have fun in a safe and nurturing environment.
Her CV is extensive, having performed at the MTV Music Awards, Aria Awards and also holding the position of the Princess Cruises Line Captain. Outside of her performance work, Jen has a reputation as one of Sydney’s finest choreographers and teachers, choreographing for many corporate events, including Bendon, Lynx, Peugeot, Goldwell, DanceExpo, Commonwealth Annual Ball, Expomania, Limelight events and Clinique (you know, just to name a few). Then of course, there’s her teaching - Sydney Dance Company, McDonald College, ED5 International as well as guest classes in all major cities in both NZ and Australia (what a reputation!).
Jen began teaching at the Neutral Bay School of Dance in 2002, taking over as Director in 2010, and hasn’t looked back. She absolutely loves teaching, and her warm and positive nature, along with her skill and experience, gives her students a fun, encouraging environment where they can be challenged in a healthy way and grow as performers.
