Sydney Atherton - Administration, Monday and Thursday year 4/5 Jazz and Technique, Wednesday Ready Set Dance and Ready Set Ballet
An inspiration to watch, Sydney captures the attention of our students in a heartbeat with her beautiful technique and incredible flexibility, making her the most wonderful jazz and technique mentor.
Beginning her dance journey in Hobart, Tasmania, Sydney fell in love with many styles of movement including ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and acrobatics, as well as singing. Learning and growing as a dancer at Hobart’s Body Language Dance Studio, she soon made the big move to Sydney to study dance full time.
Honing her contemporary skills at Ev & Bow Full Time Dance Training Centre, followed by two years at ED5 International studying various styles, Sydney has developed as a dancer through well-rounded training, which no doubt attributes to her gorgeous technique.
Outside of teaching Sydney works as a dancer, performing and choreographing for various corporate events and dance workshops and conventions around Australia. Her biggest achievement has been her recent work producing, directing, choreographing and performing in her new cabaret show After Midnight The Cabaret, the show was a huge success in the 2022 Fringe Festival.
2023 will be Sydney's 5th year with NBD, Sydney feels grateful to be able to pass on her knowledge and love of the arts to students who are passionate about performing. Whether their reasons for dancing at NBD are to build their confidence and make new friends, or they are contemplating a professional dance career of their own, Sydney hopes to help them develop and continue their journey of discovery through dance.
