Director Donna Jean Holmes originally opened DJD in 1985 whilst performing professionally back in the late 80’s/90’s. Donna is now assisted by her daughter Monique (Teacher & Professional Performer) & other talented teachers now training our young dancers in Ashfield in Sydney's Inner West. Over the years, Donna has successfully trained and inspired many beautiful dancers, with past students achieving great success in the Performing Arts Industry.

At Donna Jean’s Danceforce, we pride ourselves on building a community which nurtures our student’s love of dance and performing arts. Children are encouraged to learn skills, develop self-expression and achieve their full potential in a safe, caring, family-friendly environment.

We welcome everyone to our DJD Community. 


Hi Donna,

Just wanted to say thank you. It was our first experience of a dance concert and it was so lovely. You and your team did an amazing job and we all thoroughly enjoyed watching all the dances, not just our own children. It's been a really tough year but it was such a joy to end it this way. The concert was definitely a highlight.
