Dianne expressed a keen interest in the performing arts from a young age, commencing with singing lessons, followed by dance soon after. She trained in Classical Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Latin American and Character dance.

Her VCE studies included Drama, and in 2009 she went further afield to study dance with professional dance teachers such as Kim Adam, Stephen Agisilaou and Kathryn Hickman. Dianne also commenced a Diploma in Dance at Box Hill TAFE where she studied under the guidance of renowned teachers Dianne Parrington, Jade Duffy and Michelle Saunders.

Dianne loves teaching all age groups and is a key teacher of the Preschooler DanceFun classes at PointCookDance. She has a natural rapport with young people who benefit from her care and attention of the individual student. Adults are inspired by her exuberance, energy and positive attitude.

There's no stopping Dianne. In 2011 she developed an interest in the fitness industry so returned to studies to complete a Certificate 3 in Personal Training. She also qualified as a Zumba Fitness instructor, adding another string to her bow and allowing PointCookDance to offer this easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party™.

This year Dianne is further developing her dance skills by commencing in a 2 year full time dance course at Patricks Studios.

This is her 3rd year teaching for Janine McGrath at Point Cook.
