Anita was born and dance-trained in Townsville, Australia. Intending to follow a career in Health, but wanting to fulfill her urge to perform, she accepted a short dance contract in Asia and hasn’t looked back! After performing in Thailand, Japan, and on the Sydney Showboat in Australia, she then went on to dance on Cruise Ships in America and Europe, at the Moulin Rouge in Paris, and in Musical Theatre including the role of Lorraine in ‘42nd Street’, Germany.
She holds an Honours degree in Occupational Therapy, and has clinical experience in working with children with learning difficulties and developmental disabilities. She holds a current Yoga Instructor Certification, and is a dual examiner for JazzAddict Australasia and Lucidity Contemporary Syllabus with The Asia Pacific Dance Association (APDA). In 2014 she launched Spring Pointe, a structured play-based pre-ballet program for 3-4 year olds. She believes in the multi-faceted benefits of learning dancing and urges students to follow the challenging but thoroughly worthwhile path of dance in whatever way they choose.
