Studio Owner/Director: Heidi McKenzie

Heidi McKenzie (nee Marosszeky) began dancing at the age of three and studied at the Marie Walton Mahon Dance Academy. She studied as a full-time student at the school, completing her Advanced Ballet qualification with the Royal Academy of Dance, before gaining placement at the Queensland University of Technology for their Associated Dance Diploma programme.

Heidi's lifelong dream was to become a dance teacher, and after returning to Newcastle and teaching for a number of schools, she achieved this by opening Heidi's School of Dance in 1995. She is also a mum to two beautiful boys.

Heidi is a member of the British Ballet Organisation and continues to maintain her training through yearly attendance at the National Dance Week. Her students have participated in Starstruck, Dance Festival, McHappy Day, Mattara, the Rock Eistedfodd Challenge and more. Our dancers have also featured in productions such as Weird Al Yankovic and High School Musical. They have been successful in local and state eistedfodds. 




Staff members of Heidi's School of Dance are diligently selected for their strong technical knowledge and talent for teaching, and reflect Heidi's approach to provide a supportive and caring school for all students.

Heidi and her staff endeavour to pass on their knowledge and love of dance to  students in a friendly and nurturing environment.

Our teaching staff for 2014 are:

  • Laura Dawson
  • Marigold Pazar
  • Emma O'Sullivan
  • Indigo Lawrie
