Clare Dark


Originally from Townsville, Romi trained at Croft- Gilchrist School of Dancing, under the guidance of Robyn Croft, a foundation member of the Australian Ballet and a former dancer in the Royal Ballet. Romi has been dancing since the age of four trained in various styles including Classical Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary and Hip-Hop.  

Romi moved from Townsville to Brisbane to attend university and now holds her Bachelor in Fine Arts (Dance) from QUT and has also received her RAD Registered Teaching Status, where she can prepare and guide student for annual examinations. She also holds an Advanced Teaching Diploma in Tap & Jazz as well as being an Acrobatic Arts Certified Teacher. 

Teaching in schools across Brisbane & Townsville, Romi is a diligent and caring teacher who nurtures the love for dance in children and loves to share her passion for dance to others.

Sophie started dancing at the age of five and has now been dancing and performing for the past 16 years. She has multiple dance examinations under her belt including the highest Comdance studio examination for tap, Advanced Gold Star, where she received ‘Honours’.
Sophie has attended numerous dance workshops with leading industry professionals
including Marko Panzic and Briar Nolet. She has also performed in numerous productions
including “Grease” and “Thoroughly Modern Millie”. Sophie has now made the shift to
teaching and choreographing and has just completed her Certificate IV in Dance Teaching
and Management, while simultaneously studying a dual degree at UQ. She currently teaches and choreographs at two dance schools in Brisbane. She also is the choreographer for St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School’s 2023 musical, “Strictly Ballroom”. Sophie has also worked on television shows, such as the 2022 Stan Series “Joe vs Carole”.
Her passion lies in teaching the next generation and empowering young people to be the
best dancers they can be. She is all about staying up to date with the latest industry trends in both training methods and choreography.

Clare is an independent contemporary artist. She was introduced to the arts at a young age through casual dance classes and competing in local art competitions in North Queensland. This fostered a passion for artistic expression and later led her to train full-time in Western Australia in her teens. Through this, Clare was mentored by some of Perth’s most highly acclaimed industry professionals and developed strong foundations in ballet, repertoire, Pas De Deux, character and contemporary. Though her background was largely classical dance, contemporary was the field she grew passionate about. Clare channelled her focus to free movement, gaining a deeper understanding of expression and finding a curiosity to continue experimenting with the style.
That intrigue led her to the Queensland University of Technology with a scholarship, to study Dance Performance. In her studies there, Clare was introduced to a broader network of contemporary. She underwent workshops with DanceNorth, Bangarra Dance Theatre, and Sydney Dance Company, learnt Rambert repertoire from former company members and developed an individual style in the art form. She also continued her training in ballet and completed her RAD teachers’ examinations, receiving the qualification to teach Pre-Primary to Intermediate Foundation in the syllabus. 
Now, after graduating, Clare hopes to use her experience and passion for movement to foster new creative minds and share the welfare of knowledge she has collected with the next group of dancers.
