Kellie Blake

Started her love affair with dance when she was just seven years old. Her passion for dance and movement led her to train in everything from BAL ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, salsa, bachata and zouk! 

Kellie attended the renowned ‘Newtown High School of the Performing Arts', and then went on to do a dance tour of Disneyland in 2007 where she performed and continued her dance training. She attended classes at the EDGE Performing Arts Centre in LA, well known for having some of the best teachers in the business! 

On returning home to Sydney she performed in the Sydney Latin Festival, Sydney International Bachata Festival, the Sydney International Zouk Festival and other salsa events in the city. The effervescent Kellie has not surprisingly, also placed at the Australian Latin Dance Championships in both amateur and professional salsa solo teams.

Kellie is thrilled to come on board as a teacher @theBarre studios and we are lucky to have her expertise to train our Ballet 101 class. Kellie says “I love ballet for its universal appeal, it's grace and aesthetics. I believe ballet is one of the greatest workout, thanks to the strength and control it requires.” 

When she isn't dancing, you'll find the brilliant Kellie studying to gain her psychology registration. This lady knows how to balance life, she also loves bushwalking and hanging out with her crazy dog and you’ll love hanging out with her @theBarre!
