Having grown up in Wales I attended Mid Wales Dance Academy where I was inspired to continue a career in the dance industry. From there I attended BA Hons Ballet Education program at the Royal Academy of Dance headquarters in Battersea, London. Once graduated I embarked on a sports development project in Fiji teaching children dance and assisted with day to day schooling. From there I continued my dance teaching career in Sydney and in Melbourne for various schools over the last 5 years. I also found myself working in a gym personal training clients and working in aged care managing the well-being staff teams across various sites bringing activities and exercise to the older generation. My combination of experiences assisted me in recognising the importance of dance particularly Ballet based training as a means of fitness, this paired with the idea of Ballet being fun and inspiring and not something which should be seen as unattainable or feared has brought me to discover Ballet Bums. I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to be the first person to bring Ballet Bums to Australia and cannot wait to deliver the program to like minded individuals.

“BalletBums couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. I love how versatile the classes are and the fact that anyone, any shape and any size can participate and realise how great ballet is for the body and the mind.”
