About LJ Projects

Our Beginnings

LJ Projects is a dance theatre company based on the Sunshine Coast established in 2014 by Melissa Lanham. With years of arts practice based on the coast, Melissa has developed her practice through a colourful collaborative journey in multidisciplinary arts. LJ Projects premiere show Vincent created in 2014 has toured nationally to critical acclaim and is still touring today. Now with a studio base in Nambour the company is striving to activate and support the arts. 


Where we are now 

In 2018 Melissa's daughter Chloe came on board to assist in the companies projects. Working together they have shifted LJ Projects into a company and are enjoying the work as a family. 
With roots in contemporary and dance theatre the company has now expanded to offer professional works, community initiatives and youth dance education.




LJ Projects is always on the lookout for future collaborative opportunities. We are dedicated to exploring new and exciting relationships with fellow creatives. 

We may be able to provide directing, co-directing, movement direction and choreography or even providing training.
