Coaches

Our Coaches are the cornerstones of our success

At Karilee our coaches are the cornerstones of our success.  Not only do they choreograph and train our teams, and develop the skills of our team members, they also provide a caring environment for some very young people.

All Karilee coaches are accredited with Calisthenics ACT Incorporated and have undergone significant training and development over many years to achieve their coaching certification. 

Our teams (except our seniors) generally have a principal coach and an assistant coach or two co-coaches. In Tinies and Sub Juniors each coach usually  and a cadet and a class assistant. Cadets and a class assistants are usually dancers from our Intermediate team who are training for their own coaching accreditation.
