About Me

Jamie Long has been dancing and singing for over 20 years being trained by some of the industry's finest. Jamie began her arts journey with Melbourne Dance eXchange (MDX). She trained in a range of styles as well as being a member of their Elite Training Team, performing for festivals and Starlight Foundation. This sparked her passion for becoming an all-rounded performer. She then continued her training at The Australian Conservatoire of Ballet refining her skills and focus in Contemporary and Ballet specifically Vaganova-Based Training. Jamie has performed for various events and in various spaces including the MCG, The Arts Centre, The Palace Theatre, and The National Theatre to name a few.



Jamie has also trained in musical theatre studying at the VCA in their Music Theatre Studio Course, 2015 and ShowFit, 2016. Her credits include Little Shop of Horrors (Crystal), Fame (Iris Kelly), and The Addams Family (Spanish Gypsy Ancestor). Her most notable roles include “Maria” in The Sound of Music to “Heather Chandler” in the Victorian Amateur Premiere of Heathers.



Her love for musical theatre and dance led her to choreograph and coach in the last 7 years. Jamie has choreographed a school competition piece, conducted a 180 girl choir on the stage of Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne (1st place) in 2015. She has also choreographed a few shows including, Altona City Theatre’s sold-out season Alice in Wonderland: The Pantomime in 2016.

She is currently also studying her Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary) at the Australian Catholic University. She works with various schools, directing, vocal directing, and choreographing shows.



Jamie believes in creating and maintaining well-rounded performers with an in-depth knowledge of proper technique, musicality, physicality, and stage presence. Her principles of Unlock, Unblock, Perform mean a lot to the companies vision and what it always wants to be associated with. To put it simply, in order to emote on stage truthfully, we have to be vulnerable and ready to give everything to the audience. Unlocking any tension. Unblock any issues that cause unease and discomfort. Perform like your heart, soul, and mind depends on it. Because the moment you can master that, the truth is effortless.
