ALL ABOUT US
The Balanced Dancer centres its philosophy on encouraging balance in three aspects - life, career and dance.
Experience and learn how to dance in a private studio setting or in the comfort of your own home by a qualified dance coach and choreographer.
We adopt a holistic approach to learning. Unlike the standardised style of teaching offered in a traditional dance school which generally caters for a large number of students, The Balanced Dancer provides coaching and mentoring which tailors the dance experience to each individual dancer and their particular goals and aspirations.
Whether you are:
an advanced dance student looking to maximise your dancing experience and further develop your technique and performance standards,
a bride or groom seeking a uniquely choreographed wedding dance piece, or
a beginner in dance and seeking the comfort of learning dance in a one-on-one environment before plunging into group dance classes
The Balanced Dancer will guide you every step of the way.
Our Founding Director, Natalie Orola, inspires balance in all dancers, no matter your level of experience. A true advocate of balance, Natalie is a role model for balancing dual careers, both as a lawyer and dance professional.
Natalie is an Associate of the Australasian Dance Association (ADA) (formerly the Federal Association of Teachers of Dancing), an Affiliate Member with The Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing (CSTD) and trained in the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) classical ballet syllabus, holding over 15 years of dance teaching experience at various dance schools around Australia.
With almost three decades of experience within the dance industry, Natalie draws upon her technical training in a wide range of dance styles (including Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, Musical Theatre and Hip Hop) to offer private dance coaching and mentoring services like no other.
