LIVES: MELBOURNE, VIC
DANCE STYLE: JAZZ
OCCUPATION: PERFORMER / DANCE TEACHER
“I can’t help but be competitive with myself. I want to prove I can go further. I want to surprise people.”
Teaching across four different dance schools in Melbourne, including her own, Penny is one busy lady. Striking and vibrant, Penny began dancing at 12 with jazz classes and has gone on to perform around Australia and overseas. But her success has been marred by injury – a knee reconstruction stopped her dancing for 12 months. But eternally positive, Penny believes she has become a stronger and more mature dancer because of it.
As cheerleader for the NBL South Dragons, Penny has had plenty of experience performing in front of large crowds and she is determined to prove she is more than big hair and fake tan!
