East Coast Precision directors, Nathan Ballard and Amanda Lim, run weekly classes in Brisbane for all ages, ranging from toddlers to adults. They also teach at weekend workshops around Australia and overseas throughout the year. In addition to classes, East Coast Precision perform regularly around Brisbane, including events at South Bank and the Ekka.
Nathan and Amanda performed together for the first time in 2013 and have done so several times a year since then. In 2016, they started providing youth workshops in Canberra and in 2017 started regular classes in Brisbane. Nathan and Amanda are passionate about clogging and infuse their classes and events with this energy.
Nathan has been clogging for 15 years and teaching for the last 8 years. In 2014, he spent 12 months in the USA developing his technique and overall knowledge of clogging. During this time he was given the chance to teach at most major workshops around the USA. He also travelled to Europe with a group of American instructors to teach at workshops in Germany and the Czech Republic. Nathan returns to America often to follow in his competitive pursuits with clogging, most recently returning to Knoxville Tennessee January 2017 for the Clogging Champions of America national competition.
Amanda has been clogging for 9 years and is an accredited instructor with the Australian Clogging Association (ACA). Amanda taught at her first National Convention in 2015 after her choreography won the ACA's inaugural choreography competition. She has also had the chance to clog in the USA, competing in the NCHC’s Dollywood Clogging Classic 2016 in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
