Esther’s love of dance started at age 4 with her first Ballet class and she knew from a very early age that she would spend her whole life dancing. She studied many styles of dance including Jazz, Contemporary, and Lyrical but will always think of ballet as her first love.After College, Esther went on to study full-time at Wellington Performing Arts Centre gaining a Diploma in Commercial Dance(with distinction). Following graduation, she moved to Melbourne to pursue a career in dance, while here she successfully auditioned and got a contract at Tokyo Disneyland, she loved every moment of her time living and working in Japan as a princess. After this, Esther began working as a dancer for Princess Cruises and felt like her dream of working as a dancer had finally come true. During her 5 contracts, she was lucky enough to travel the world and feels very fortunate to have made a career out of something that makes her so happy. At the beginning of 2014 she retired from performing and came back to Wellington. Since then she has been back teaching full time and gets so much joy out of passing on her passion and experience to the students at Extreme Dance.
