Natalie stepped into her first dance class at two years old begging because she wanted to dance just like her big sister and thus her passion was born. Natalie grew up in Burlington within both Recreational and Competitive programs training in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre and Lyrical.
Natalie continued her post-secondary education at George Brown College where she studied Dance, Vocals and Acting graduating in 2014. Soon after, Natalie, continued her dance education and training at Broadway Dance Center in NYC (International Student Visa Program) where she found her new love for Broadway-style theatre, Tap, Heels and Jazz Funk while learning from many of New York’s top choreographers.
6 months after graduating, Natalie, landed her first professional gig (2 contracts) travelling abroad with Royal Caribbean International Cruise Lines where she performed in various shows portraying the character of Princess Fiona.
Natalie has always known that she wanted to pursue a career in Dance and has spent her 20 something’s jumping into the industry with two feet.

Natalie believes the more she continues to educate and train herself than the more she can educate and grow her students.
Natalie is passionate about technique, loves to develop choreographic ideas and finds great joy in creating engaging, age-appropriate and educational concepts for her students.
Natalie strives to create a classroom that fosters the discipline and life skills dance teaches and most importantly is ‘home’ to her students.
