Our teachers are the heart and soul of our studio
"Teach, Inspire, Touch a life forever"
After running Totally Tumbling And Tricks for the last four years, I've worked with many children across all ages, abilities and desires. The one thing they have in common is, kids, love to be upside down, flipping around and learning new tumbling and acrobatic skills.
One of the things I'm most proud of at Totally Tumbling And Tricks is the fact that no matter if your child is a beginner or advanced, wanting to build confidence, or if they are wanting to meet new people while having an awesome time, you're certainly in the right place.
Rachel started teaching at ‘Totally Tumbling and Tricks’ in 2017 shortly after joining the classes at the studio. She has always had a passion for dance and stretch.
From an early age, she started stretch classes and gymnastics and then at age 7, she started dancing and has continued to enjoy the arts to this day. She has had classes in acrobatics, ballet/pointe, jazz, contemporary, modern and tap. She performed in ‘Southern Stars’, ‘Schools Spectacular’, ‘Dance Festival’, fetes, a retirement village and more. In 2013 Rachel was awarded an Arts ‘Youth Achievement Award’ and completed her ‘Duke of Ed’ award with components
involving dance and volunteering. Rachel is currently studying ‘Nutrition and Dietetics’ at the University of Wollongong while teaching many of the tumbling students at the studio. She has gained level 1 and 2 tumbling qualifications over her time teaching. Rachel loves helping students achieve new skills, enjoying fitness, seeing them improve and develop confidence.

Working alongside our dance teachers, assistants also study theory from the DanceStep program, providing valuable knowledge in areas such as Anatomy, Safe Tumbling, Learning Styles and Musicality.
The inclusion of leadership studies and self awareness activities seeks to encourage students to take responsibility for themselves and others in a supported environment which often results in increased levels of self esteem and confidence.
