Tamara retired from a professional dance career in 2015, which saw her perform with the Queensland Ballet Company for 9 years under both former and current Directors, Francois Klaus and Li Cunxin. As well as this, Tamara spent two years in Germany dancing with both the Deutsche Oper Ballett and Anhaltisches Theater of Dessau.
Tamara currently teaches for numerous professional and leading dance institutions throughout Brisbane. Her work has also involved introducing and fostering dance at both Primary and High Schools across the state. She has been fortunate to gain invaluable cultural experience by bringing new forms of dance to various remote Queensland community’s and their youth.
As an educator, Tamara enjoys being part of an exciting network in which to cultivate the growth and diversity of the local dance sector. She works with a variety of groups including Dance for Parkinson’s and Seniors Ballet classes alongside the Queensland Ballet faculty, as well as coaching students and adults of all levels.
