Jump'n Jig

Jump'n Jig

The Dance Program for Preschoolers

Jump’n Jig is designed to help preschoolers develop coordination, self-esteem & social skills through dance, music and play.

The program is divided into three levels to ensure classes can be modified for children of different ages and gross motor skills development.

 

All Jump'n Jig licensed studios are run by qualified Irish Dance teachers that have current working with children and police checks, to ensure your child is in good hands.

 

Jump'nJigNo matter the age a dancer starts learning their first steps, it’s never easy! Often there is near chaos teaching a new beginners’ class - with kids of various ages, all learning at different rates.

Many dancers start as young as two or three, so how does one develop a structured approach to teaching dance to the new generation?

Enter Fiona Holmes ADCRG. It’s 2010, and a little two-year-old enters her Melbourne classroom. “It became apparent to me, that there are not many toddlers in the world that could learn the over two threes and beginner reel.”

Armed with her Bachelors’ degree in Education, Fiona set out about formulating this structure and has launched it as an exciting and dynamic preschool program called Jump’n Jig.

“I was looking to grow the school, so I accepted her enrolment and begun the very first preschool class. Through years of trial and error and countless little dancers, I wrote the program down and now teachers across the world are jumping onboard to teach Jump’n Jig in their own schools... Whilst it may appear to be an overnight success, Jump’n Jig has been eight years in the making.”

Liffey Rivers Mystery Series

“My daughters announced in the late 1990’s that they did not want to read my old Nancy Drew books because they were “boring,” explains author Brenna Briggs. Brenna was beyond disappointed her daughters didn’t relate to the beloved sleuth, Nancy Drew. “Nancy’s exciting life had been my entire reason for living when I was their age. In fact, after the two of us had been introduced, I began to look at everything differently. Was my home room teacher really a nun? Or was she only pretending to be a nun for some nefarious purpose that I would have to uncover? Was the school librarian really a librarian? And so on….”

It was her daughter’s rejection of Nancy Drew that inspired Brenna to create a new heroine. As a gifted writer, Brenna felt Irish Dancers would relate to someone just like them and soon Liffey Rivers: The Irish Dancer/detective was born!

The Liffey Rivers books have enabled Brenna to blend the world of crime and intrigue with the exciting world of Irish Dancing. Some of the books have been best sellers on Amazon and they are part of the Archives of the Traditional Music and Dance Archives- Taisce Cheol Dúchais Éireann (ITMA).

THE LIFFEY RIVERS IRISH DANCER MYSTERIES are available on Amazon, The Book Depository, Barnes and Noble, and most online bookstores all over the world. For customers who order direct through Brenna’s website, the author autographs books and sends customers free charms related to each of the books. Learn more at www.brennabriggs.blogspot.com.

 

Makeup by Roisin R

Roisin R

“As an Irish Dancer, I know how important it is to have confidence and, for myself, I know looking my absolute best on competition days always gives me that confidence boost to go on stage and give it my all,” explains makeup artist Roisin Redmond.

From a young age, Rosin expressed an interest in makeup, honing and developing her skills along the way. As someone with an exceptional eye, Rosin studied textiles and Graphic Design at the university level. This budding entrepreneur also has a qualification in Business studies. Though it all, Rosin kept her eye on the idea of working toward launching her own make-up service for dancers. The idea is not unusual as there has been a plethora of new entries in the Irish Dancing makeup space. In fact, demand for talented makeup artists is high on Irish Dancing’s competition circuit.

Roisin’s entry into the makeup world has been seamless. She initially worked through her family’s well know feis vendor business, Redmond Rose. Based in the UK, Redmond Rose is an authorized seller of Camelia Rose’s product line and it was here Roisin launched her career as a makeup artist.
