Adelaide began dancing from her earliest years and was featured soloist with the Camberwell District Ballet. She was a Victorian under 12 gold medallist (Cecchetti) and attended the VCA Secondary College first as a dancer then as a singer, achieving two “Top Acts” in VCE. From the age of 12 she sang and danced with her parents’ trios The Elastic Band (children’s shows) and Trio Grande (concerts and cabaret).
While at University she ran her own private school of dance, meanwhile singing in small jazz groups and performing in dance projects. She then undertook choreographic work and began to teach for BDC before she left for three years’ work as a Dancer at the Moulin Rouge in Paris.
Upon her return from Paris she commenced a Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Applied Learning) at Deakin in Geelong as well as working on further singing projects.
From her earliest years, Adelaide has expressed herself through song and dance and, and her approach is one that encourages joyful and natural expression. Allied to this however, is her firm belief that expression is based in a sound technique. This in turn, sets up good deportment, healthy movement and adaptability to various dance styles.
