Catherine Moane - Studio Director
I am an experienced FAD Cheer & Dance Instructor and IASF accredited Cheerleading Coach. With a wealth of industry knowledge spanning 30 years my job as Studio Director has given me the opportunity to give back what I have learnt throughout my career and what I love so much about the world of dance and cheerleading.
I took my first dance class at the age of three and since then the love of dance has become my passion. As a dance student in Sydney, i competed in eisteddfods and completed examinations in FATD Jass, Tap and Modern as well as RAD Ballet Advance with Honours. I competed in the prestigious PRix de Lausanne at the age of sixteen before graduation from the Australian Ballet School with a Diploma of Dance. Throughout my Career, I have danced professionally on world stages in all genres both independently and as a member of The Dancers Company and Singapore Dance Theatre.
The teaching aspect of my life blossomed abroad when my husband and I owned and operated our own dance school in the Philippines for many years. My work as a teach has also led me to be a guest and freelance teacher in Hong Kong, The Philippines and Australia. My Staff and I strive to develop the confidence, technique, performance and presentation skills of all our students in a safe, nurturing and friendly environment. My wonderful dance instructors, cheer coaches and I are dedicated to making every students experience fun and positive. Our programs will always be of exceptional quality and we as a team are committed to continual professional development.
Four years ago, FAD GC had one cheer team representing us at competitions and in 2015 we well have grown to thirteen cheer and dance teams. In 2014 our competition teams proudly brought home to the Gold Coast Studio 12 x 1st, 13 x 2nd & 19 x 3rds. We competed our first interstate competition and all teams can boast the honour of placing 1st a truly fantastic achievement from teams less than four years in existence.
This year will be the 5th year I have been operating FAD Cheer & Dance Studios with locations of Cheer and Dance classes at Coomera, Helensvale, Pacific Pines, Nerang, Worongary and Robina.
Many of the people I call my friends are my inspirational teachers, admirable colleges and mentors, all of which have had some hand in making me the person I am today. I am honoured to be a part of the FAD team and I feel I have now come full circle from student to Studio Director, inspiring and mentoring young dancers and students.Yours Sincerely
