Open Class - Come and View Week

New Staff Member

We are so excited to introduce one of our brand new staff members to you. Miss Kara will be starting with us very soon.


Kara is a classical ballet specialist and highly experienced dancer, performer and technical development trainer who began training in classical ballet at the age of 3. Tutored under Louise Buljubasich at Dance Works Academy, Innisfail, Kara then went on to study at the Australian Ballet School through the Interstate Training Programme and toured with the Queensland Youth Ballet for two years running. In her performing days, Kara was the recipient of a number of awards and bursaries, and continues to pass on a passion for performing and technical excellence to her students.


Kara ran her own dance studio in Darwin, Northern Territory, with students winning multiple accolades at local and interstate eisteddfods and past students going on to audition for the Australian Ballet School, WAAPA and more. Her pre-professional experience paired with a love of technical training has caused Kara to develop experience in dancing under a number of syllabi and disciplines. These include Radiance Academy’s preferred ATOD syllabus (Ballet and Jazz), ADA (Ballet, Jazz and Tap), Glenn Wood (Tap), Acrobatic Arts (Acrobatics), as well as the Ceccheti and RAD methods of Classical Ballet. Kara is currently undertaking her formal training in a Certificate IV in Dance Teaching and Management, as well as completing the Progressing Ballet Technique course. She also runs her own student development business, FORM[ED] for Dancers which aims to improve technical excellence in elite dancers through online training videos. We are so excited to welcome Miss Kara to the team!

We have some big news!  Our team is spreading their wings.  We have the exciting opportunity of expanding our studio and opening a 2nd branch run by our incredible Miss Kayli.  We will be opening Radiance Academy Sydney in 2020.  Our beautiful ballet and performance team teacher will be able to relocate to be close to her husband who moved to Sydney early this year.  We are so excited to see what Miss Kayli and our Sydney branch will achieve over the next few years.  We will miss seeing her in the studio every day, but she will keep us up to date with her adventures regularly. 


Miss Kara will be stepping into Miss Kayli's huge shoes in Toowoomba over the next few months and we are confident there will be a seamless transition for the classes, teams and soloists.  


All soloists, if you could please touch base with Miss Sally and let her know your intentions for private lessons in term 3.
