Classes ranging from Beginner to Advanced in all styles Showbiz Express was the first specialised Circus and Dance studio on the Gold Coast. Established in 1996 Showbiz is Celebrating 20 years of fun through the education of Dance and Circus Arts, so why not come on down and Join the Circus!
Showbiz Express Circus and Dance was founded by the principal Jo DeGoldi in 1996. In 2016 Showbiz Express is Celebrating 20 Years of Fun through Circus and Dance Education and runs 6 days a week to provide young dancers entertainers the opportunity to further their development in dance and the circus arts.
It is with absolute pleasure that I write this testimonial. Our family have been involved with Jo De Goldi and the Showbiz Express Circus & Dance school for the past four years. We have also participated at other dance schools before finding this wonderful environment. Therefore, we have had the opportunity to compare Jo and her team to others in the industry.
Showbiz provides a wonderful stable, nurturing environment in which the children can develop their dance skills without fear of being judged or excluded. Regardless of the skill level of the children they are always included in all that is being offered. This is very different to other dance schools where only the elite get to perform.
Jo is a wonderful role model to all around her. Her natural enthusiasm is catching and her warmth and caring nature is a key to her success. As parents leaving your child in any school’s care requires certain standards to be met and maintained. I happily allow my child to spend all their free time at this dance school.
The children all work very hard to be the best that they can be and this is due to Jo and her amazing encouragement that she offers to all that step through the schools door. Whilst there is always an element of fun there is always a sensible and professional approach when training takes place. A safe environment in which to learn is always high on any parent’s wish list.
When competing at eisteddfod’s in the performance team the professional manner in which Jo and her team conduct themselves is exemplary. Jo has an incredible reputation amongst the judges, teachers and performers.
We have no hesitations in recommending Jo De Goldi and Showbiz Express Circus & Dance to any one that asks.
