Natalia began her dance training aged 2 at her mother’s dance school in Kenthurst NSW. From there she was trained by Prue Bowen, Kit Lethby, Jane Allyn and Ashley Killar in Sydney and at 14 left school to study classical ballet full-time.
It was here she successfully completed all her Major Royal Academy of Dance exams including Advanced. After 2 years of full-time dancing, Natalia returned to school to complete her HSC and from there went on to study at the University of New England, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science in 2004.
After working as a Naturopath for many years, Natalia left work to have her 3 young children and gain her Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies from the RAD. Natalia opened Natalia Johnson Dance Academy (now Cammeray Dance Academy) in July 2013 before relocating to Queensland in 2017. Natalia aims to instil the love of dance onto her students, coupled with an enthusiasm to learn.
