Past Student Testimonials

“Karen Jacobi Dance & Performing Arts Academy played a vital role in my up bringing and education. It is here I was not only taught how to dance but also was encouraged to follow my dreams, to see things through to the end, respect myself and others and most importantly to be confident within my self.

It was through Karen’s training and opportunities that she made available to me that I was able to gain my advance diplomas in ballet, jazz and tap. I was also able to study musical theatre through Trinity College under her teachings. My child hood memories are filled with concerts, eisteddfods and friendships that I will keep for life.

I am now a fully qualified dance teacher who runs my own dance studio, none of which would have been possible with out Karen’s support and guidance, Thank you.”

“Karen Jacobi has the wonderful gift of being able to teach and nurture a young dancer into a professional, she has structured her school and her classes to cater for beginners to advanced performers.

This is a school where your child will be taken care of no matter their skill level or if they wish to dance for fun or to pursue it as a career.  I will always recommend  Karen’s school, she is and always has been dedicated to teaching her joy of performance.”

“Being now an established member of the Queensland Ballet and having the opportunity to perform and tour extensively throughout Australia, Europe and Asia, I am happy to look back and remember the years of training I recieved at the Karen Jacobi Dance and Performing Arts Accademy. My time there equiped me with a solid base of technique and performance experience which began my journey towards a full-time career in a world renouned ballet company. I have many fond memories of the friends I made at Karen’s and count myself lucky to have had such a friendly and supportive group of teachers and performers to encourage my technical and artistic abbilities throughout my school years.”
