Mariella was lucky to have started her dance journey at a young age with classes including ballet, jazz, contemporary and hip hop.
These classes and learning how to play and read music ignited her love for the arts and she continued to try different styles of dance.
After testing out ballroom briefly, it really kicked off when she attended her first salsa social night in Brisbane in 2008 – from here she was hooked on Latin.
After attending private lessons, group classes & festivals in Sydney she learnt every Latin & Brazilian style she could her hands on, but her passion has always been set on Salsa.
The complexity of the music with the depth of technique and styles available have always made it an incredibly dynamic genre and has always kept her hungry to continue to learn more.
Mariella has also performed & competed nationally in Brazilian Samba representing the Glamourosas Brazilian Entertainment Canberra.
