The Distinguished Bridgette Allen


Jacqui James

FOR THE PAST THIRTY plus years Bridgette Allen has become a distinguished jazz performer, vocalist, dancer and teacher.

Amazingly at just fifteen Bridgette ran her own tap dance school after receiving a Teacher’s certificate from the British Ballet Organisation. Since she has continued teaching, giving guidance to students with their vocal range and dexterity, so they have the ultimate tools to succeed in their careers.

Bridgette has appeared at the renowned Melbourne’s International Jazz Festival and has performed at prominent Victorian venues including Capers Theatre, Chapel Off Chapel, Victorian Arts Centre and Melbourne Town Hall.

Not only a great performer, Bridgette has directed musicals while also starring in them. Bridgette’s sultry deep voice is magic. It transports you to a different era. If you visit her site and listen to Agua Di Beber, you will hear the magic of her voice.

Also on her site, you can book private lessons with Bridgette for her expertise on your musical/performing career.

Bridgette is excited about her upcoming gig on Friday, July 25th. She will be joined onstage by musical director and friend, Bob Sedergreen on piano, to present The Queens Of Jazz.

I'm an Australian author and music journalist from Melbourne. I've had articles and poetry published in several magazines and newspapers since finishing my Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing in 2001. In 2010 Gigs 'n Interviews was born. I launched it with my first big named interview and that was Vanessa Amorosi and then in 2012 I felt unbelievably privileged to interview Ronan Keating. I'm extremely proud of what Gigs 'n Interviews has become as it's seen as a platform for emerging artists and entertainers to be heard.

Looking forward to writing more children's books, I hope to change the wrong perception of children and adults with disabilities as I was born with Severe Cerebral Palsy (like Christy Brown who wrote My Left Foot). People can view my books at
