Chanelle Mansell

Director and Instructor

Chanelle was born in South Africa where she started dancing at the age of 3. At the age of 5 she joined the PACT ballet school of dance where she learnt ballet, character and free movement. She also took part in different staged shows like Nutcracker, Spartacus, Sleeping Beauty with the PACT Ballet Company. In 2002 Chanelle got accepted into the Youth Dance Company of Tshwane where she worked her way from being part of the corps de ballet to soloist to principle ballerina. In 2006 she had the honour of being Cinderella in the staged production of Cinderella. She trained in the Royal Academy of dancing syllabus where she completed all grades up to Advance 2. In her years of dance, although ballet was her main focus, she did jazz, hip hop, modern dancing and contemporary. She also had dance as a subject at school where dance anatomy and history was a requirement. At the end of 2007 Chanelle finished school and went on to audition for the South African Ballet Company where only 5 people a year got accepted. She was one of the very lucky dancers to get chosen. Unfortunately she was unable to accept the placement as she moved to New Zealand with her family. This was a very difficult decision because dancing for the company was her biggest dream. Between 2007 and 2010 she danced at a range of different events and competitions qualifying for the world champs in America. In 2010 she started teaching ballet for Kim Hoeft Dance Studio. In 2011 she was asked to buy Kim Hoeft Dance Studio which, is now known as Interfusion Dance Studio. Chanelle has since completed her RAD teachers and is also qualified to teach Acrobatic Arts up to Module 5. She has also done her teachers trial in Progressing Ballet Technique. Last year Chanelle was invited to be an examiner at a studio in Auckland and to adjudicate a competition in Tauranga. She will continue to improve herself to offer the best training to all students and up coming teachers.
