Ambassador: Isabelle Bitsikas
Hi I’m Isabelle Bitsikas, I am 11 years old and dance at TDC The Dance Company, I’ve been dancing since I was 2 years old.
I train in all styles of dance but my favourite would be Lyrical and Contemporary and Acro. What I love most about dancing is that I am always learning.
There is always new skills or challenges, and I love that I can see how much I have grown as a dancer, Of course the other best thing is that I spend lots of hours just having fun with best friends and teachers .
I have also been very fortunate to travel to lots of countries and meet dancers from all over the world.
It’s so nice to make new friends and see so many passionate dancers just like me .
Love Izzy B
Ambassador: Tarlia Lombardo
Hi! My name is Tarlia Lombardo and I have been dancing for twelve years. I am thrilled to be an ambassador for Diamond Dance Challenge this year! I was accepted into Patrick studios Australia and started dancing there in 2018, I am currently studying and training there in both the Elite and Academy programs.
I love dancing 6 days a week and I enjoy all genres of dance but if I had to pick a favourite I would have to say contemporary is my top pick! In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends, I also love running with my dog!
I have been competing in dance competitions for about 5 years, I really enjoy competing because it is a great way to improve myself as a dancer and meet new people!
I am looking forward to the new people I will meet and new experiences I will get this year!
Ambassador: Emilia Kyprianou
Hi Im Emilia and I am 16. I have been dancing since I was 4 years of age at Centrestage Performing Arts School with Ian and Leanne White, and train in musical theatre, voice, jazz, tap and lyrical. I also train at Brunswick School of Dance with Josephine Woodberry in ballet & contemporary. For the last two years I have been lucky enough to be a part of Dance Prescriptions (Dr Lisa Ellis) where we train every second Sunday.
I also love to act and take 5 hours of drama and improv/ film making classes every week at Melbourne Teen Actors under the guidance of Robin Brown. In 2017 I received a part scholarship to attend the jazz and contemporary summer program at the Joffrey School in New York - it was an amazing experience to learn from industry professionals such as Mia Michaels & Tokyo. My favourite genre of dance is jazz and musical theatre and one day I hope to work in musical theatre or pursue acting.
