Ness has been on stage as a die-hard Calisthenics girl since the age of 4. As the daughter of a calisthenics coach and club principal, she was of course raised in leg tan, buns and false eyelashes. And it’s given her a dance foundation that she is incredibly grateful for today. Now she won’t ever pass up the opportunity to dance- whether it be in a calisthenics class, pole workshop or commercia flash mob!
Ness has been a performer in calisthenics teams, and some solos, for over 20 years, and has been a coach of both soloists and teams for just shy of 10 years.
During this time, she has proudly taught competition and state-title winning pupils, choreographed numerous performances for a range of ages and abilities and coached girls successfully through level exams.
After many years dancing with her feet on the ground, Ness started her aerial life in early 2017, taking up aerial Silks at En Pointe, and almost a year later, Ness decided to take up Pole as well.
In her short time poling, Ness has taken out the Beginner 1st place prize at EPSC 2018 and competed in her first national amateur competition, Debut, where she placed 3rd in the intermediate division, and also won Best Technique across the whole competition.
Since then, Ness has gone on to be invited to compete in more state and national level competition, securing her spot in the pole competition scene.
By far Ness’s favourite part of being a dance teacher is creating performances that both pupils and audience members enjoy and remember. But the most rewarding part for her, comes from seeing her students progress and get excited when they succeed.
Ness is thrilled to be taking on a new challenge instructing at En Pointe and can’t wait to encourage and engage her students to work their hardest and be their best.
