Ms Naidu arrived in the Coffs Coast region in 2017 after starting her career in Melbourne as a professional ballerina, working as a dance teacher, director, choreographer and producer in Australia and in Mumbai, India and starting her own successful specialist fabric importing business ‘Fusion Fabrics’.

Jade told News Of The Area, “In India I was so impressed by the talent, dedication and enthusiasm that I saw in my students that I started an internship program and brought four young performers to Australia for six months to experience the industry here.”

After moving to the Coffs Harbour area she began teaching dance at Woolgoolga Dance Studio, and starred in the lead role as the witch Elphaba in the local community theatre production of ‘Wicked’ in May 2017.

In 2018 she started her own business, Naidu Performing Arts Company and began teaching dance, acting and theatre for juniors and teens in Woolgoolga and Coramba.

Jade graduated from NIDA (National Institute for Dramatic Arts) in 2018, and in January 2019 became the owner of Woolgoolga Dance Studio, expanding it to deliver performing arts training including musical theatre for all ages under the new name of Woolgoolga Performing Arts Studio.

In response to pandemic restrictions Jade introduced a series of online Couch Concerts, featuring online presentations of video clips from local performers, which featured in an SBS World News report in early July.

Jade continues to innovate with an actors bootcamp and an upcoming Musical in a Week.
