Published on 24 March 2021
Nadia Vella-Taranto has been named the winner of the 2021 Fairfield City Women’s Day Award.
The award was presented to Ms Vella-Taranto by Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone at the March council meeting on Tuesday 23 March, to recognise International Women’s Day.
Now in its third year the award recognises the professional innovation and talent of local women who inspire others and remind us that we can all play a part in our City’s success.
Nadia is at the helm of the successful dance school ‘Nadia’s Performance Studio’ in Wetherill Park. Since 2004, the school has grown to become one of the largest studios in south west Sydney, attracting students and adults from far and wide to learn dance, singing, music, drama and acrobatics. Some of the school’s students have travelled to the USA, Europe and interstate on dance tours.
Nadia has also been involved in charity work around the community, is the Dance Director of Cancer Council’s Stars of Southwest Sydney, and provides scholarships to talented performers in need of assistance.
It is Nadia’s personal philosophy that anything can be achieved; with belief, hard work and support.
“Nadia has taught and mentored thousands of students over the years, she believes in nurturing confidence, boosting self-esteem and giving each person an equal opportunity to excel in what they’re passionate about,” Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said.
“Nadia is a true role model in the community and her success is testament to the professionalism and hard work she has demonstrated during her 17 years in business. I commend her on her contribution to Fairfield City.”
