Sue says no one is considered unable to take part, and all participants are actively assisted and encouraged to grow their abilities. And the exciting part says Renee is that they do!

The variety of programs available are amazing, valuable, fun exercise, building self confidence and self esteem and improving coordination and cognition through numerous forms of Dance including Dancercise, Tap Dancing, Expressive Dance, Drumming/percussion, Drama/Acting, Yoga Therapy, Singing/Karaoke, Art/Art Therapy/Craft, laughter and learning.

All these activities can easily be adapted to meet the unique needs of participants and can be fun, engaging and enjoyable for all involved.

Alichia began teaching the Wednesday 9am Jazz and 10.15am Dancercise programs on 2nd August. Some of our members were lucky to meet her on the two Wednesdays prior when she came along to get to know the H2L crowd.

Alichia has a career in the dance industry spanning over 30yrs. In 2011 Alichia opened her own studio in Brisbane which is still running today, teaching all styles of dance to a wide range of age groups, from 3-year-olds to 80-year-olds.

Before opening her own studio Alichia ran a dance school in Hong Kong for 5 years which was an enriching experience for her. She also teaches dance in Special Schools around Brisbane. Alichia finds so much joy in making a positive impact on the lives of her students through dance.

Tap, Jazz, and Ballet are her areas of expertise, and she strives to ensure that all her students leave class feeling fulfilled. When Alichia is not teaching she is a mum to 2 beautiful kids who are her world. Alichia is looking forward to having a lot of fun with everyone involved. Please say hi and introduce yourself before your next class.

Huge thanks to CARMEL, RENEE, JON and MELANIE for taking classes during Bev’s illness. Your commitment to seeing H2L flourish is truly appreciated.
