We are so proud of our amazing Alumna Isabella Crain, who has secured a contract with the Sydney Dance Company for their "Impermanence" season!
Isabella began dancing at ABDA when she was 12 years old, and her talent and dedication soon paid off - at 17 she moved to Lausanne, Switzerland to take up a place at the Rudra Béjart Ballet School, where she completed her full-time training.
Since returning to Australia in 2019, Isabella has made herself known in the contemporary dance world here, winning the Senior Prize at the 2019 Brisbane International Contemporary Dance Prix and receiving secondments with Introdans in the Netherlands, Australian Dance Collective in Brisbane, and the Sydney Dance Company.
We look forward to sharing in your bright future, and following your onward journey from here Isabella! xxx
