WooNDeakin

Sandi has a diverse range of experiences working as a Choreographer. It has ranged from the following:

  • Public and Private Schools
  • Private Dance School Concerts and Eisteddfords
  • Community groups
  • AFL Entertainment
  • Rubgy Super 12’s Entertainment
  • NBL Basketball
  • Community Arts Festivals
  • Musical Theatre productions
  • Commercial and nightclub performances
  • Youth Dance Companies
  • Music Videos

Some memorable highlights include CelebrateWA’s Australia Day Concert, Perth Fringe Festival, Popstars, a Jebediah film clip, the Mandurah Stretch Festival and the opening ceremony of the Fremantle Dockers inaugural game at the Subiaco Oval.

In 2012, Sandi choreographed for Theatre Kimberley’s production of Staircase to the Moon, where she was Co-Choreographer with Claudia Alessi. Based on the children’s book of the same name, the production was written, produced, performed and seen by the local Broome community.

In 2013, she choreographed and directed her first full length work titled – Because of You…, which was recently remounted with families from Denmark (WA) during the 2020 Covid lockdown and presented as a live-streamed performance. 

Most recently, Sandi’s choreographic practice has been deeply rooted in improvisation, particularly improvised performance. Sandi has most recently taken her improvised studio practice into a performance context with support of Phluxus2 Dance Collective’s IndepenDANCE Project (2018 and 2020), which provided an opportunity for Sandi to devise work-in-progress (or practice-in-progress) short pieces with professional and emerging dance artists.
