Professional Dance Experience
Trained at the Australian Ballet School as a Classical Ballet Dancer and Modern Dancer, Amaliah danced with the New Zealand Ballet Company, Ballet Victoria and Australian Dance Theatre. She continued her dance career as a freelance lecturer in both Classical Ballet and Contemporary Dance as well as starting to choreograph. She received the first Australia Council of Arts choreographic development grant for a year’s work, which enabled her to work with Dance and Theatre companies within Australia, where she built a reputation as a movement director and choreographer. In 1985, she relocated to Brisbane to be Rehearsal Director for the Queensland Ballet Company under director Harold Collins and contemporary dance teacher for Queensland School of Excellence in Dance. Training, choreographing and rehearsing dancers was a passion of hers for twenty years. In 2002 and during a time where she stopped participating in her chosen career to look after her aged Father, Amaliah found Tango.
