Gerard Pigg's Style 

Gerard's style is urban commercial. His movement quality varies depending on the music selected; it may be girly and flirty one week, and tough and "gangster" the next. Gerard is very fun loving and enthusiastic, looking to challenge his students to improve each and every time.

O2 Dance Studios

Vendor sincce 2015

Co-founded by industry expert Etienne Khoo and dance enthusiast Meisha Luo, O2 Studios is Melbourne's premium dance and fitness hub.

After having seen Etienne choreograph on the television show So You Think You Can Dance Australia, Meisha began to regularly attend Etienne’s casual dance classes. Etienne and Meisha developed the concept of O2 Studios, wishing to address the at times competing perspectives of teacher/choreographer, and student.

O2’s vision is to share their passion for dance and fitness in a warm and inviting environment – an environment that encourages and nurtures the professional development of artists, a space that doesn’t intimidate beginners with the proverbial “two left feet”, and ultimately, a destination that inspires creativity and fun.

Showcasing an incredible line-up of Australia’s finest choreographers and instructors, O2 caters for students of all fitness and training levels. Etienne and Meisha are particularly proud of, and grateful to, the team of individuals they have assembled to assist them in realizing their dream. Whether you are aiming to nurture your craft, develop your performance skills, or merely to improve your fitness, the O2 team will deliver – so what are you waiting for?
