Talina began her dancing on the Gold Coast at the age of 5. She has trained her whole life in all styles at Paradise Performers Academy under owners Peta Norton, Chelsee Grioli & most recently as The Studio Entertainment under Sarah & Jesse Rasmussen. She found a love for helping kids achieve their goals and started assisting classes at the age of 13. By the age of 15, she was teaching her own classes. She has taught all ages and all styles to groups, solos, duos & trios. She has created award winning routines and has such joy watching her students perform on stage.


During this time, Talina completed a fulltime dance course where she obtained her cert III & IV in Fitness and cert IV in dance. Talina has worked professionally at Movie World in both Fright Nights and White Christmas. She was lucky enough to be a featured dancer in Amy Sharks music video ‘Adore’ and in 2016, danced at the SeaFM World Famous Rooftop Party. Talina has also done many professional corporate gigs with both Velvet Rope Entertainment & Killer Creative Entertainment. She thrives dancing and also feels a great joy teaching dance and sharing her knowledge to younger students. She loves seeing them grow and feels so lucky to have her passion, be her career.
