HELEN CONSTANTINOU

Dance Instructor

After showing an obvious love for anything dance, Helen began her performance journey at the age of 6.  Helen was one of Shine’s founding students in 2005 – training in Funk/Jazz, Ballet. Tap & Singing.  After showing obvious talent, Helen was our first recipient of both the Junior and Senior Student of the Year awards during her time at Shine.  Helen was part of Shine’s inaugural elite Showgroup classes in which she had wonderful opportunities to perform at various shows throughout Melbourne including the Myer Christmas Parade, Royal Melbourne Show & the ‘Razzle Dazzle’ premiere, as well as various competitions.  Helen is also an accomplished singing and actor, having played lead roles in several school musicals.

Since aspiring to continue dance through teaching, Helen was fortunate enough to be mentored in dance instruction from Director & Principal teacher of Shine – Vanessa Tota. Vanessa has equipped Helen with the skills necessary to pass on her knowledge and love of dance to her students – a task which she not only cherished, but consolidated her love for dance the more she has done it. Not only has Helen been a great teacher at Shine, she also has an intimate understanding of the way Shine operates as a business due to her other part-time role at Shine as our Receptionist
