Highly respected within the Australian dance industry, Sharyn is a registered Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) ballet teacher and a RAD examiner with over 40 years of ballet teaching experience. Throughout her career Sharyn has led many dancers to great heights in their professional dance careers and educates RAD teachers at professional development seminars. Sharyn has studied multiple genres and specialised fields including classical ballet, jazz, contemporary, flamenco, diet & nutrition, pilates & body strength & conditioning.
In recent years Sharyn identified a lack of programs for children requiring specialised assistance, with needs that were not being addressed by mainstream dance teaching techniques & dance education courses. Upon investigating further Sharyn completed Profectum and their introductory DIR Floortime Model course and is currently working towards the DIR Floortime Model Professional course.
Integrating her new studies with her vast knowledge of dance & music Sharyn was then inspired to create a valuable, safe & fun learning space for these children and DOTS was born!
