Celebrity Genius

One of my greatest loves is dancing and I appreciate the dedication and hours of hard work that goes into a professionally choreographed dance production having spent 25 years of my life as a “Dance Mum” during my two daughters’ dancing days. Dancing is an Art and it takes a true artist to be able to choreograph and present a great dance routine that will capture the audience’s attention and entertain them with great technique, stage presentation and costumes. One such talented choreographer is Jason Coleman.

Both of my daughters are extremely lucky to have been in Jason’s dance classes when he visited their dance school on a regular basis for Dance Workshops and would choreograph dance routines for them. Jason was also nice enough to invite the parents in to watch on occasions. This was a rare treat.

Jason is currently appearing on the Channel 9 TV show “Celebrity Apprentice”. I have only been watching this show because of Jason. You most likely would have seen either Jason or his choreography on TV, Live Stage or Big Screen. Jason has choreographed for artists such as Christine Anu, Tina Arena, Human Nature, Chaka Khan, Vanessa Amorossi, John Farnham and Kate Cebrano to name just a few. He has also choreographed for TV shows such as Water Rats, G.P, E Street and Popstars and many more.

Jason’s involvement in choreography also includes the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Handover Ceremony for the Commonwealth Games in Manchester and was Director of Choreography for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Asian Games in Doha Qatar. He was also Choreographer and Dance Consultant on the feature film “Happy Feet. Jason consequently also played a motion capture performance.

Jasons list of credits is endless and you can read more about him on his Jason Colemans Ministry of Dance site which is the Dance School that Jason runs in North Melbourne.

Yours in Great Dance Choreography
