Natalie started her dancing at an early age in Sydney.
With her husband, Richard, they moved to the UK to improve and to learn from the world’s best.

Natalie now lives in Brisbane and runs Learn2Dance, inspiring all levels of students to reach their potential goals. Natalie is also asked on a regular basis to demonstrate, lecture, teach and now adjudicate in various parts of the world.
What I am looking for while adjudicating is, whatever age or level you are dancing please make sure your basic foundation is clear and you are trying to create nice clean lines with good posture and positioning
