My love of dance began at the tiny age of 2! I'm one of the original students of Dance Power, I've been part of this family since the beginning! After completing all of my exams with Dance Power, I studied full time Performing Arts with the McDonald College. I have my Certificate IV in Performing Arts and I'm qualified in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Singing, Hip Hop, Lyrical and Musical Theatre.

I started teaching for Susan at age 16. Over the last 18 years I've taught kids and adults in Australia, the UK and New Zealand. I've worked professionally in Film and Television in Australia (cast in the role of Kit from 2003-2007 in Home and Away) and onstage in Christmas Pantomimes in London (cast as Princess Jasmine in 2007 and Cinderella in 2009). My career has been exciting and full of opportunity, it's taken me around the world and back again and I owe so much of it to Susan and Dance Power. This dance family she has created is unique. Its family oriented and the opportunities offered to students are amazing. I LOVE teaching. I'm thrilled to be part of this fabulous team, and to now be teaching my daughter back where it all began.

Growing up into our beautiful Dance Power Family, I have learnt many values and life lessons along with team work, fairness and working towards my goals and dreams.

I have been a part of Dance Power for over 15 years and have always admired and idolised the teachers I’ve had and now I am super excited to start teaching in 2018.

In 2016 I trained full time at Brent Street and received my Certificate IV in Performing Arts. The year of training helped me to become a versatile dancer and pushed me to be an all-round performer.

This opened many doors for me and after my first professional audition, I landed a contract in Disneyland Paris as a character, parade performer that included the role of Moana.

A true highlight of my performing career and one of my ultimate goals achieved!!

I am looking forward to teaching Hip Hop at Dance Power and can’t wait to see the students grow into amazing performers.

My dream has always to make dancing my career.  I have been at Dance Power from the very beginning and have made so many wonderful friendships along the way.

I have worked hard to achieve my goals and have successfully completed all my Ballet and Tap grades.

I have always wanted to be a versatile dancer so I jumped into every style and genre that was offered to me.

I am always wanting to learn more……. I am excited to be attending Brent Street Full Time in 2016. I think this course will only open up to more learning and opportunities.

I am so glad that I can share my knowledge of dance with my students and I really enjoy watching each student progress.

Each year we are able to extend ourselves with extra workshops and guest teachers. Dance Power has really been a perfect start for me to be able to follow my dreams and branch out into the Dance World.

Many years ago I started as a  Tiny Tot at Dance Power. Over the years I have trained in all styles of dance and have completed all my Ballet Exams to Elementary.

I really enjoy performing and training alongside some of my favourite people in the world.

I really value all of my experiences at Dance Power and I am pleased to be able to take on a teaching role at the studio.

I started Student teaching when I was 13 years old and I really enjoy teaching the younger students.

The Mini Groovers are the highlight of my week with so many fun personalities it is an entertaining and fun class.

Qualified in Jazz (BAL), Singing (AMEB) and Ballet (BAL) with a certificate 3 in teaching Classical Ballet.

At only 16 years of age I was asked to teach some dance lessons for my local dance studio it didn’t take long for me to realize that I was hooked!!

I love all aspects of the Performing Arts but I have a special love for all styles of dance.

When I was 20 years old I had the opportunity to take over a small studio called Dance Power.

The studio went from 35 students to 250 students and only a year and this was the start of my lifelong passion of running a friendly,family ordinated dance studio.

Now 20 years later I am still doing what I love each day.

After 22 Years of teaching dance I have found that one of the most rewarding and humbling aspects of my career is when students I have taught in the past are now bringing their children to learn dance. Thereby continuing to share this mutual love of dance.

Susan teaches Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary and Musical Theatre. Susan has a 100% pass rate on all exams and has received several awards from Ballet Australasia for her Honours results in Classical Ballet.

I absolutely love teaching a Dance Power!

I started dance lessons at Dance Power when I was only 9 years old. Dancing was always a great outlet for me to be creative and enjoy spending time with  my friends.

Dance Power is like a family to me and now I am lucky enough to teach the next generation of dancers.

I have been teaching for the last 5 years and love watching my students develop confidence and improve.

I have so many wonderful memories of my years of learning dance and I have been lucky enough to be able to continue my passion of dance through teaching.

I always want to stay current with my choreography so I am still taking classes and I feel like I am always growing and learning new and exciting changes.

I have finished a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science with honours. I have also completed all my exams in BAL Classical Ballet.

I am thrilled to be able to share my love of dance through my teaching role at dance Power.

I have been part of the Dance Power family for over 20 invaluable years. I am passionate about Dance and Education, which has enabled me to work with some of Australia’s greatest choreographers, gaining a Bachelor of Arts in Dance Education from the University of New South Wales.

Dance Power over the years has inspired and taught me valuable lessons about commitment, discipline and most importantly friendship and teamwork. I am passionate about establishing strong connections between Dance and Education, which I have been perusing over the last 6 years, through my current role as College Dance coordinator at Tuggerah Lake Secondary College.

Dance Power not only values student development, but also strives to encourage and nurture the progression of students post school through teaching opportunities and support networks. Being part of Dance Power is one of my proudest achievements and I endeavour to instil the love of dance into my students, as my past teachers have inspired me.

I look forward to supporting and leading my students to happiness and greatness through dance in the future.


I have been dancing from when I was tiny!! I grew up in Newcastle and l just loved learning dance.

I have always been really motivated to make a career out of dancing so I took the leap and moved out of home at only 15 years old!

I trained at Brent Street Performing Arts and after I completed my HSC I did a year of Full Time with Brent Street.

Over the years of training I have been able to learn so much from all the talented teachers and choreographers.

This experience has helped me to be very independent and has taught me what it takes to be part of the Dance World.

I have been teaching at Dance Power for two years now.

All the students have always been so responsive to learning my styles and ideas and that is why I enjoy teaching at the studio.

I am been so excited to see so many of my solo students achieving great results in Eisteddfods’ have to say I love going and watching them perform and just hanging out with this great bunch of students and families.

My highlight of 2015 was being selected to part of the Dream Dance Company. This popular commercial dance company has had huge success in its first year. Dancing alongside some of Australia’s best dancers is just the most exciting opportunities. We performed in theatres all throughout Australia.

The Dance Power crew were all there in Sydney to cheer me on and I loved that they could see me doing what I love…..

I am excited that I can create and teach at Dance Power and I look forward to seeing the progression of the dancers in the future.
