"Maya Sheridan, from Dance Studio 101, is not only an inspirational teacher and choreographer, but an inspirational person. Dance Studio 101 is the place to be if you want to raise the roof this year!"
Rachael Beck (Entertainer)

" I love the space at 101...The cool 80's Hip Hop feel of the interior with all the records on the wall and the relaxed atmosphere of the studio. Ramon Baynes and myself had the opportunity to meet some of Sydney's best dance talent there. Anytime I need the space or a place to teach while I'm in Sydney, it definitely will be Dance Studio 101."
Brandon Barton (Principal Dancer- J Lo, Brandy, Chris Brown, Missy Elliott, Gwen Stefani, Ciara, MaryJ Blige, Pussycat Dolls. Hollywood C.A.)

"The workshops at Dance Studio 101 are always fun! It's a great way to keep fit with the girls, have a laugh, and a damn good time"
Annalise Braakensiek (Model/ Actor/ Entrepreneur)

"Maya's Dance Studio 101 generates the ambience and vibe needed for creativity at all times. For me it's like choreographing in the comfortability of my own home. As cheesy as it sounds it's my studio home away from home....and I live in L.A!"
Rob Rich (Dancer/Choreographer L.A)

"It was 16 years ago we started the Afro-Caribbean Dance Theatre Company in Brisbane. After all these years the fact Maya and I remain so close in spirit and mind is the bond we developed. She continues to share her passion for dance as it is through the dance that many will come to realize themselves for who they truly are! "
Kofi Walker (Dancehall Master - Kingston, Jamaica)

"last night studio 101 saved my life.....yet again ! for the past 4 years I have been representing at 101 on a weekly dose of booty worship at Maya's Dancehall class. With effortless flow, Maya brings experience and fierce attitude to her hot choreography and an endless supply of challenging routines to master. 101 is a source of energy and electricity, set to phat beats that is undeniably addictive. Maya was a muse for my 2010 costume collection and I was honored to have her open the show at the Utzon room at the Sydney Opera House. She is a true professional."
Techa Noble (The Kingpins / Designer for fashion label - Birthday Suit)

"Maya Martinez was my first choreographer I ever worked with and she was amazing and helped me think in another way as a performer and liberated me...since then I have evolved and will never forget the time she helped me get down and do the dance hall grind lol Keep rockin it Maya!! :-) "
Vassy (International Recording Artist)

"Maya Sheridan, is not only a passionate dancer and choreographer but a wonderful collaborator. I thoroughly enjoyed creating with her on the City of Sydney Chinese New Year Parades 2008, 2009 which I directed. If it wasn't for Maya's talents and Dance Studio 101, my Parade would not have had the impact and success. I long for the day to work with Maya and Dance Studio 101 again."
Darren Yap (Theatre Director)

"Maya and the team at Dance Studio 101 have helped us redefine client entertainment. We look forward to leveraging their choreography and performance abilities as we activate our latest branded entertainment show - the LXD.”
Stephen Hunt (Director of Joost - Adconion Media Group) "

"We've used the services of Maya Sheridan from Dance Studio 101 for the last couple of years. I must say she is one of the nicest and most professional persons to deal with. Her years of experience and creative talent has helped to build our business into one of Australia's Hottest Dance Brands. No matter what we throw at her nothing is ever a problem. Even at the drop of a hat she always comes through. No job is to big or small Maya Sheridan is on my speed dial."
(Teko Dwyer - Director of Hedkandi Australia/NZ)

"Whilst working at Leo Burnett Australia I had the pleasure of working with Maya Sheridan and her crew at 101. She not only exceeded my expectations with her choreography but also always went beyond the call of duty. With pressing time constraints, she created something truly unique and category breaking for the brand. She is a joy to know and one of the most talented people I have ever had the pleasure in meeting. I do not have the command of any language to explain the dedication she has of what she does, all I can say is she rocks! and I hope you have the opportunity of experiencing what she creates at Dance Studio 101."
Sesh Moodley, (Creative Director - Naked Communications Australia)

"You don’t have to be a dancer to benefit from Maya’s world of knowledge. Her choreography and advice has helped me with performances to camera, on stage and interactions with other performers. She changed the way I think about movement forever!"
Jasmine Rae (Singer/ Songwriter/ Recording artist)

I have attended several classes and dance workshops at 101 and found it a friendly and encouraging environment to explore different dance styles with some truly inspiring teachers. And Maya’s dancers sure threw on a great show when they performed for the closing night of the Sydney Latin American Film Festival at Dendy Opera Quays."
Reem Algharabali (Journalist and event publicist)

"The smiles of pure delight spoke louder than words as guests of the Longrain Sydney Xmas party were entertained by a fine selection of dancers from 101. The performance got even better as partygoers were encouraged to bust their own moves under the direction of these party professionals. They truly made our night! "
Nikki Christie (Owner - Longrain restaurant)

"I organized for my friends hens to start at Dance Studio 101 and we all had a fantastic time! Maya is a brilliant teacher and took her time with us so we could all pick up the choreography. We will definitely be back in the future!"
Lara Wheatley (Owner of Executive Beauty)

"Maya and the Dance Studio 101 crew are awesome! Their creativity and flair brings a great level of entertainment to all their dance workshops and they are always able to set just the right mood into any genre they set after! Their interpretations are fantastic and they bring a fun, yet highly professional, attitude to everything they do."
Dean Weinbren (Director – Munky Social Entertainment and Nightlife Promotions)

"When Maya appeared, the epitome of Flashdance cool in lycra, we almost couldn’t believe what we had stumbled across. With vintage dance costumes, props and a glass of champagne, the atmosphere is total fun. The Solid Gold course was an awesome team building experience, we all loved it, were totally comfortable and laughed ourselves happy. Pure gold."
Sophie Nixon (Senior Designer - Sass and Bide)
