For over two decades, Teachers Mutual Bank has been a passionate supporter of the performing arts in NSW public schools. As part of this partnership, Teachers Mutual Bank recently invited guest choreographer Matt Lee to present a master class to some of these dedicated and passionate teachers. This offered them a unique development opportunity and supported the ambitions and goals they have for their students.
Matt Lee, former So You Think You Can Dance Judge, Actor and Presenter delivered a two hour Master Class with students and teachers, demonstrating a range of techniques and ways to engage and make dancing fun and exciting for all.
Matt is a leading Australian theatre and dance personality who has starred in some of Australia’s favourite television and stage shows. He performed as Bert in Mary Poppins, winning the 2011 Helpmann Award for Best Male Actor in a Musical. His stage credits include major roles in Miss Saigon, We Will Rock You, Hugh Jackman’s The Boy from Oz and Rent to name but a few!
He was a permanent member of the judging panel as well as choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance for Network Ten, which earned him a 2009 Logie Nomination for Most Popular New Talent. He is well known for his choreographic work with Hilary Duff, Human Nature, Guy Sebastian, Marcia Hines, and Christine Anu.

The State Dance Festival presents the work of over 1,500 students from Kindergarten to Year 12. The Festival showcases these students in six diverse performance programs throughout the weeklong festival. The programs highlight the range of styles explored through the study of dance in public schools. Each performance reveals the determination of students and teachers to explore the art of dance and to achieve performances of the highest quality. These performances are underpinned by technical training, stamina, creativity, confidence, cooperation and respect for one another fostered by their dedicated and talented teachers.
Teachers Mutual Bank acknowledges the hard work, dedication and contribution our teachers make to NSW public schools each and every day. So if you believe that teachers do one of the most important jobs in the world, the feeling’s mutual!
