The process of moving overseas as a dancer was made so much easier knowing that someone like Stefanie, with so much experience and knowledge was there to support me! Whether I needed a second opinion about an injury or sickness, support with the language barrier, or even just a general chat, I knew that someone was ALWAYS there!

I have been involved as an educator in training classical ballet since 1974 when I opened the Marie Walton-Mahon Dance Academy and in 2007 was the founder of the National College of Dance. During 2012 I moved to Sydney to become the Artistic Director of Progressing Ballet Technique and in 2015 accepted the position to become the principal of the part time school of Tanya Pearson Academy in Sydney. During the many years I have sent scores of students to finishing schools in Europe and taking up positions in prominent ballet companies. The time overseas can be stressful for students especially in the first year. I highly recommend this wonderful initiative, a godsend for students and parents and I applaud this wonderful opportunity for all travelling abroad.

Working with Stefanie changed how I think about fueling myself as a dancer. She takes into account both the aesthetic needs for dance while being healthy and nutritionally rounded as an athlete. Not only that, while I know she is very busy, she makes me feel like her only client/friend. Cannot recommend highly enough if you want sensible, accurate nutrition advice!!

I have to use this opportunity to thank an incredible friend and Dr. @ausdancersoverseas + @steph_ausdancersfood for guiding me through these high, incredible and intense ballet times. She has helped me reach my peak by fueling for gruelling rehearsal days and my performances. But also how to substitute during injury to best heal and repair. Stephanie has helped me so much over the last year. I definitely wouldn’t have performed at my best without the help and knowledge I have had from her! If you are a dancer interested in ‘turbo charging’ their work contact her! There is no 1 size fits all we are all individuals!
