Our director, Erin Brosnan, a 4-time Australian National Irish Dancing Champion was a professional dancer for 10 years. Having toured worldwide with shows including the world famous Riverdance, her accolades are astounding. 


Alongside her husband and dance partner, she auditioned for Got To Dance UK and was voted in to the Live Semi Finals out of over 3000 acts. Following her success on the show she was contracted to perform on London's West End

for 2 seasons with a new production called Flash Mob, where she performed alongside winners of shows including So You Think You Can Dance, Strictly Come Dancing and America’s Best Dance Crew.


Although Erin specialised in Irish dancing as her professional career, Erin trained in all styles of dance right here in Sydney. 


Erin retired from professional dancing to follow her dream of starting her own dance studio so she could pass on the love and passion she has for dance, to her students.
