Shanti was born in Tweed Heads and started dancing at the age of 3.
She trained primarily in jazz, tap and musical theatre until the age of 13 when she moved to Danielle's Studio of Dance where she discovered her love for ballet.
After training at our studio for 3 years, including 1 year of full-time training, she was accepted into the Senior Programme at Queensland Ballet Academy. She joined the Pre-Professional Program in 2021, and after two years she is now thrilled to be a Jette-Parker Young Artist with Queensland Ballet.
I love going to see Shanti perform and am following her career with pride.
