 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!
