Dancing since 6 years old, Fiona started her training with classical ballet at Dublin Ballet School under the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) method, achieving distinction in all RAD examinations (grades 1-8). While she dabbled in Irish dance for some years, it was ballet, jazz, contemporary, and tap that she was really passionate about.

She went on to study dance full time in Dublin where she achieved a FETAC in Dance Studies and attained her Diploma in Dance Instruction from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance, whilst completing Advanced Classical Ballet (RAD).

Fiona also has a Bachelor in German from Trinity College, Dublin, and used her Uni days to teach ballet classes for the university dance society and to coach the University Jazz Team to success in national contests.

Fiona was offered full scholarship to attend the International ImpulsTanz festival, Vienna, where she trained with Bruce Taylor, Joe Alegado, and Salim Gauwloos to name a few. Following this three week love affair with Vienna, she decided to make it her home, and is now looking forward becoming part of Kristina’s Broadway Connection team.
