JEREMY GATESCLASSICAL TEACHER
Jeremy started his dance career as a commercial dancer. He represented Australia at World Hip Hop Championships in the United States with Phly Crew and was a lead dancer in music videos, festivals, clubs and corporate events across Australia and on TV. It wasn’t until his late teens that Jeremy’s passion for ballet overtook all other forms of dance and he made the decision to pursue ballet as a career.
Jeremy graduated the Tanya Pearson Academy Full Time program and continued his classical ballet studies at the selective Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Mannheim, Germany. He was trained in the French and Russian (Vaganova) techniques under the direction of Stuttgart Ballet’s ex-principal dancer’s, Prof. Birgit Keil and Vladimir Klos. He then received a soloist contract with the Thuringian State Ballet in Germany and went on to dance lead roles from classical ballet’s and contemporary works in Romeo and Juliet, The Nutcracker, Paquita, Coppélia, Swan Lake, Cinderella, Waiting room, Keimzeit, Der Joker, 27, Piaf La Vie en Rose and more.
Jeremy retired from the company and has returned to Australia to concentrate on his teaching career. He has adjudicated classical ballet sections at eisteddfods and since January 2019 Jeremy has been a resident columnist for Dancetrain magazine. He takes an approach to dance education that not only focuses on ballet technique but also encourages students to grow as artists and people in a safe, positive and active learning environment.
