Upon graduating from the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts with a BA in Dance and Certificate II Musical Theatre, Natalya has gone on to perform locally, nationally and internationally. Natalya’s diverse training has lead her to a career performing a number of styles including musical theatre, contemporary, commercial and main house dance works. Her first company work “Impasse” had her plucked from her second year of studies where she was a principal dancer among four other well known, industry greats. Natalya was a founding member of The Ninth Floor performance group where she was a company dancer for over 6 years. With a desire to travel yet not abandon her profession she took to the cruise ships travelling world wide, for both Classic International Cruises and Around The World Cruises.
On her return to Australia she was offered a lead role with Disney Tokyo where she performed as Belle, Snow White and Princess Jasmine in park parades, special events and Disney Sea’s 5th year anniversary performance. Following Tokyo, Natalya was invited to perform for the “Absolute” Kylie Minogue show where she toured both nationally and internationally. Returning to Perth once again, Natalya went on to co-produce/direct/choreograph and perform for the cabaret burlesque trio, know as The Ruby Roses during which time she also appeared in the Western Australian Equity Guild Award nominated musical “Heart of Gold” as lead chorus and Principal dancer in “Push Up”.
Based in Sydney, Natalya recently joined the commercial dance company The Rogue Dolls as well as performing regularly for The Magicians Cabaret.
Natalya’s talents have crossed over from stage to screen where she has been featured in music videos for artists such as Daniel Merriweather, Abbe`May, John Butler, Voyager, Sun Rai and Jebediah.
