SJ Dance was formed by Sammy in 2015, with just a handful of dancers taking Adult Jazz. We have grown to offer Adult classes in Jazz, Ballet and Tap to various levels and have welcomed many more dancers into our SJ Family.
As the company has grown, our aim remains the same - to provide inclusive, supportive, friendly classes for adults no matter what experience you have.
We have had amazing performance opportunities over the years....
In the summer of 2017, Sammy choreographed for The Walt Disney Company's entry into the London LGBT Pride Parade. SJ Dancers and employees of The Walt Disney Company performed a repeating sequence of 8 different routines, leading the 250+ strong Disney team through the streets of London for many hours! This was such a proud and unforgettable moment for all involved!
In February 2018, we held our first SJ Showcase - to a packed out audience, in a Hammersmith theatre! Dancers and singers came together to perform 18 numbers and the show was a resounding success.
March 2019 saw our second annual showcase, another great night! Our performers entertained the sell out crowd with songs and dances from their favourite musicals and more.
In April 2019, our troupe - after a successful audition - performed a 20 minute show on stage at Disneyland Paris! This was a lifelong dream for many of our performers, and such an incredible experience for all involved.
2020 hasn't been quite the year we expected, to say the least! We were due to have our annual showcase "A Night at the Movies" and return to Disneyland Paris once again to perform and also be a part of the Main Street Parade.
Instead, we spent lockdown running classes on Zoom and are looking forward to a return to the studio soon.
2021 will hopefully see us perform our planned showcase, and return to Disneyland Paris for another magical adventure together! Want to join us?
