Ballet Teacher Amelia Waller
Principal ballerina Amelia Waller teaches at Industry Dance Studio in Tweed Heads.
Our beautiful ballet teacher Amelia Waller is a former principal with The Queensland Ballet Company—a true star! We’re so happy and honoured to welcome such an incredible dancer to our Industry family.
While Amelia no longer performs professionally—her days are full teaching fulltime—she still radiates a certain something mentor Francois Klaus recognized and encouraged when she was starting out.
Graceful and passionate, Amelia’s love of dance remains as strong as ever, influencing her teaching and the growing numbers of devoted students attending her popular classes.
“I am finding my own way of passing on knowledge and seeing the younger ones progress is very satisfying,” she says, modestly.
Amelia’s list of principal roles is long. The first was as Guinevere in The Queensland Ballet Company’s performance of King Arthur. She was principal in Carmen, The Little Mermaid and Stella in Streetcar Named Desire. Her soloist roles were featured in Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker.
“Whether you are doing a big role or a corps de ballet they are all so challenging,” she says.
Being accepted into the Queensland Ballet was a day Amelia will never forget.
“I was so happy Francois Klaus saw something special in me and always encouraged my individual qualities,” she says.
