2012 Craig Revel Horwood Award
Jade Naidu's work:
I guess in an nutshell, using my award money, for my first trip over to India to help implement a performing arts program in schools was a success!
Through the hard work that we did overseas, I was offered an 18 month contract to work as a choreographer for the film and theatre industry which I moved to India for from March 2015 - December 2016 to do.
I had a blast! The stage became my life and working amongst such a rewarding industry inspired me to want to bring young dancers and performers to India to witness and experience what I had. I created a fabric business whilst in India (as you can imagine the fabrics in India are all full of sparkle, bling and more) and with the profit of these fabrics we created dance internships for some lucky dancers in Ballarat to come to India and intern in the industry with me.
It was amazing and such a rewarding experience! You can view more of my intern work at www.fusionfabricsfordancers.com
Through this business we are now part sponsoring some young Indian dancers who are extremely talented to move to Melbourne and partake in professional training this year!
