Miss Manda started dancing at the age of 3, but her love for dance started well before that watching her big sisters leap and twirl around the house.
Miss Manda has experience in many different styles of dance, including jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary, hip hop and musical theatre. She undertook CSTD exams and competed in many dance competitions around Australia. She also trained full time in Finland prior to moving to Agnes Water.
Miss Manda provides the personalised attention the students need to fulfill their dance goals and is keen to provide small rural towns on the Discovery Coast with the same dance opportunities as the cities.
Miss Manda aims to assist students in committing themselves to working towards their individual and team goals, whilst maintaining the creativity of dance allowing it to be an open outlet for students.
