Callie Hitchcock - Teaching Superstar

Miss Callie began her love for dance like most little girls, by dancing around her home every moment she could. Her mum got her into Ballet lessons from the age of 2. Over the years she also has done Jazz  and Hip Hop and then discovering her passion for contemporary and started her professional development by completing a year of full time dance with Hagley Dance company after leaving High School

Callie has been part of the Jete Family since 2016.


Charlotte Colyer - Teaching Superstar

Miss Charlotte began teaching for Jete in 2019 after moving here,  from Auckland, for university. 

Charlotte love's having the opportunity to help dancers develop their skills and seeing them master things they have struggled with. Charlotte has  studied NZAMD Jazz and Contemporary and achieved top marks in all her exams.


Caleb Gopal - Teaching Superstar

Caleb is an urban dancer who's traveled to the States representing New Zealand in the Hip Hop International World Championships - where he and his crew placed 10th in the world.  Caleb is trained in various styles of Hip hop. Caleb likes teaching dance as he can pass on his passion, love, and knowledge of dance to others and hopefully inspire them in what they do both in and out of the studio.
We welcomed Caleb to the Jete Family in 2019.
