Tracey Barrett

Physical Education Teacher

Hawker Park Primary School, Warwick

"This year was the first time our school participated in Make A Move. "I loved the way every student was given the opportunity to contribute to the class dance. They were shown how to choreograph their own routines. The growth from lesson one to the show day was amazing. They are just going to get better and better every year!"

"I think Make A Move is a fabulous program. Meagan interacts wonderfully with the students. She is warm and friendly, yet clear and concise as to what needs to be done. I love how the students work collaboratively to produce their own segment and how Meagan and Tiyana expertly put it all together. The students love Make A Move day!"

“Make a Move was a fabulous addition to our Arts Program this year!! Students thoroughly enjoyed creating and learning how to choregraph their own dance routine.

"Our Kindy to year 6 classes loved their creative sessions with Meagan and Tiyana. The routines were fun, developmentally appropriate and most importantly super cute!

Katherine Kelly

Assistant Principal

St John's CPS, Scarborough

"Make A Move are an amazing company to work with. Meagan and her team are flexible and fun with both the students and the school, even when we had to re-jig lessons to cater for other events outside our control. The students loved the agency and collaboration they were afforded with the various dances. Meagan tied them all together beautifully to create a wonderful end of year showcase event for the school community. We are very excited to work with Make A Move again in 2021."

Emma Bell

Assistant Principal

Orana Catholic Primary School, Willetton

"The children of Orana engaged in the Make a Move Performance Program for the first time in 2019. The joy witnessed during the dance lessons and especially the night of the performance was heart warming to see. The engagement, learning, creativity and problem solving skills that the children demonstrated were exceptional. Make a Move is a true reflection of children learning life skills through play and movement. Meagan Baronas, the lead teacher of Make a Move, shares her passion and dedication with the students and this flows into their involvement in the programme."

Tania Thuijs

Principal

St Emilie’s CPS, Canning Vale

"It is with great pleasure that we highly recommend ‘Make A Move’ Performance Program to other schools! From our initial meeting to the culminating, end of year concert performance, Meagan listened carefully to our needs, offered great ideas, and worked expertly with students from K-6, to produce a series of very entertaining dance performances that students helped to create themselves! As a result, student engagement and ownership was high from start to finish, and staff and families very much enjoyed the culminating performance. A very positive experience and we look forward to working with Make a Move again!”

David Barns

Principal

Majella Catholic Primary School, Balga

“The Make A Move performance last night was a culmination of a fantastic programme here at Majella school for all our students – they LOVE IT! Not to mention the great feedback from parents and staff. To know that the output was the creation and effort of the children themselves adds to its benefit for students. Then to top it all off – we had the adults in the audience up and dancing in the isles – literally! Well done – the children are still on a high today and they will take treasured memories from the programme."
