She moved to Melbourne to study full-time at the National Theatre Ballet School under Gailene Stock and Gary Norman. She then continued her full-time study in Sydney at the NSW College of Dance under the direction of Kim Trainor and Kelvin Coe. 

At the conclusion of her full-time training, she joined the Contemporary Dance Company and also completed a 4-year diploma in photography.

The many professional, varied and talented teachers that Jane was fortunate to learn from throughout her dance training, inspired her to pursue a career in teaching dance.

In 2014 Jane was appointed as an examiner for Cecchetti Ballet Australia.
