Nadia Vella-Taranto was named winner of the 2021 Fairfield City Women’s Day Award.
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 dance school’s students have travelled to the USA, Europe and interstate on tours.
The fun, family environment created at the studio is one of its drawcards. There are classes for students of all abilities and interests.
Nadia has also been involved in charity work around the community, is the Dance Director of Cancer Council’s Stars of South-west Sydney and provides scholarships to talented performers in need of assistance.
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 are passionate about. Nadia is a true role model in the community and provides an outstanding outlook on life that she passes on to everyone she meets.
It is Nadia’s personal philosophy that anything can be achieved; with belief, hard work and support.
Nadia’s Performance Studio has become what it is today simply because of that; a dream for creating a family oriented performing arts studio, a belief that anything is possible, amazing support from the families of the studio and plenty of hard work along the way!
