ROWAN SCHRATZBERGER

(Alumni: Classical Ballet & Contemporary)

I trained at D n D for 8 years. Miss Carol, Miss Nolan and Miss Jasmine, along with other teachers prepared me well for my current full time ballet training with the QLD Ballet Senior Program. My time at DnD fostered a love of the art of classical ballet, whilst instilling an understanding of the importance of strong technique. I was encouraged to follow my passion and believe in myself. Thank you!
