She was raised in Perth, Western Australia and started studying classical ballet at age 4. According to ABC, she trained for 12 years under former principal dancer of the Kirov Ballet, Madame Lubov Nikonorenko. She became the Australian State Champion within three months of beginning ballroom training, which sounds pretty darn impressive.
