Adam Bull

As I reflect on my career and this incredible  journey I am now on, I look back to where it  all began, which was at the Brian Nolan Academy of Dance Studio in Werribee.

                                               Mr. Nolan recognised something in me from around 7 years of age, and although it was a bumpy road at times, he pushed, encouraged and coached me beyond what I thought I could do.

My dream was to be a Principal Dancer in the Australian Ballet Company and I must say I am blessed because I am still living my dream!
                                              I am grateful to Mr. Nolan for instilling in me the discipline, technique, respect and passion from such an early age and I am thankful to him for fortifying in me the Artist I am today!

 
Valerie Tereshchenko
Thank you Mr Nolan for all you contributed to my training and dancing! I owe you a great deal for making me stronger, more confident and giving me the passion for dance again. Also for all your generous time in those first 6 months! ❤
