Get to know your workshop teachers:
While Joshua Knox has trained in many styles of dance including contemporary, modern, tap, hip hop, house, salsa and musical theatre, his passion has always been Breakdance or BBoy. His introduction to dance came at age 6 when he learned to tap. At age 8, his attention turned to gymnastics for several years where he developed the discipline, physical fitness, stamina and balance that would ultimately define his true calling in the ‘Breakdance’ or ‘BBoy’ style.
After returning to Australia from Japan where he trained for two years, he moved to Newcastle where he began training with the elite BBoys of Australia. It was in Newcastle that Hard Knox Entertainment was established and he began to teach and perform weekly. For him, dance is part of his spirituality. He believe dance is a journey of enlightenment that draws on spiritual and physical discipline.
Shannon has been training in dance since the age of 4 years old, training in jazz then moving on to hip hop in later years. She has completed two full time courses in 2010 and 2012, learning from some of the best choreographers in the industry. Trained in a range of styles; ballet, contemporary, lyrical, singing, acting, musical theatre, hip-hop, jazz, performance and choreography. Shannon is a natural performer, and it is something that she wants to pursue for a long time.
Poppin’ Jack has been dancing for as long as he can remember and has worked hard and passionately to get to where he is today. Through years of experience learning from some of the best in the world Jack has gained knowledge, recognition and a deeper understanding of dance and how to teach. Jack has been performing since he was very young and continues to perform and battle representing not only his crew Stale Biskitz but also Australia when he travels abroad. Some highlights have been winning the Original Gangstas Popping battle in Singapore, representing Australia at the Busan 3vs3 Hip Hop competition in South Korea and representing Australia at the Dance@Live World Final in Taiwan. Stale Biskitz has been Jacks crew since 2004 and is one of the longest standing Popping Crews in Australia.
