Voted Victoria's Best Regional Dance Teacher - Herald Sun, Victoria
Soraya is entering her 14th year of dance teaching, and is experienced in teaching Jazz, both Broadway & Street Tap, Acrobatics, Musical Theatre, Contemporary & Lyrical styles.
Soraya has had past students go onto professional theatre ('MATILDA' the Musical Australian Tour) and work at Disneyland, Paris.
She has various qualifications through Australian Teachers of Dancing, Dance Factory & Acrobatics Association of Australia. Soraya's ‘speciality’ is Commercial Jazz & Modern/Street Tap & prides herself on choreographing routines that leave the audience guessing!
Over the past 10 years she has competed with soloists, duos and troupes while working with other dance schools and has loved seeing the confidence and skill improvement build in her students each time they step out on stage.
My biggest achievements in this area so far is winning the Millie Swandale Memorial Trophy at Bendigo Dance Eisteddfod 2 years in a row in both 2018 and 2019 and the Robyn Pascoe Memorial award at Royal South Street in 2019.
In Soraya's career she has also attended a wide number of masterclasses and choreography work-shops to further her skills, and hasbeen mentored by some of the industries finest such as Darren Disney (Tap Dogs original founder), Mia Michaels (SYTYCD USA, internationally renowned choreographer), Tovaris Wilson (Broadway Dance Centre NYC, SYTYCD USA), Marco Panzic (The Dream Dance Company) and Demi Sorono (SYTYCD AU) to name a few.
