Having trained at some of Melbourne’s top dance schools including Tony Bartuccio Dance Centre, Patrick Studios Australia (PSA) and Kelly Aykers Full-time Dance; Alarni has the technical and teaching skills to cater to all levels of dance. Alarni commenced her professional dance career at age 18, performing in various commercial gigs with some of Melbourne’s top choreographers including Alannah Scanlan and Jason Gilkison (Everybody Dance Now – Channel 10 reality dance show). Alarni made her theatrical debut in the English National Theatre/AKA Australia national touring production of The Cat In The Hat, touring Australia twice before commencing a full-time dance teaching and management degree with the esteemed Kelly Aykers.
