Olivia Manson

Teacher and Principal's Assistant and Performance Team Coordinator


Olivia’s passion is sharing her love for dancing with all her students. She believes that the dance studio is a place where children can learn important life skills as well as dance and performance techniques. She aims to create a welcoming environment by encouraging all students to be respectful and supportive of one another. 

Olivia began dancing at BDC Dance Studios in 2010. Throughout the years she has been an enthusiastic and cheerful member of Jazz, Contemporary, Ballet, Hip Hop, Tap and Musical Theatre classes. Olivia completed VCE Dance Units 3/4 at BDC Dance Studios in 2012. She is heavily involved in the administration of the dance school, as well as teaching multiple classes. She is currently completing her Certificate 4 in Dance Teaching and Management at Transit Dance Studios. 

Olivia is very excited to have recently completed her Rhythm Works Instructor Certification. She is particularly delighted as this dance program combines her two passions: occupational therapy and dance teaching. Olivia is looking forward to sharing this amazing program and looks forward to seeing the positive influence of the knowledge she has learnt on all her students.
