KELLY POHL 

Kelly Pohl, at the age of only 33, has danced and performed professionally in Australia and the Unites States. Years ago, Kelly performed as a key dancer in the 2000 Olympic Games alongside well known industry names David Atkins, Dean Perry and Adam Garcia (Bootmen). Kelly around this same time held a contract with Lennon Bros Circus and sang at numerous national soccer and football matches. A multiple winner at the Wollongong Eisteddfod in all styles such as jazz, tap and song and dance, Kelly has stepped up to choreograph for not only singing and dancing schools, but for Bodyheat, the male dance group, and the opening of the Entertainment Centre in Wollongong. Constantly involved with dance throughout her education, Kelly received an Opera House call back for her dance HSC and took many lead rolls in School Spectaculars. During this time an achievement of Honours Plus was attained from Grade 2 to Gold Star (under the FATD syllabus.)

Most recently Kelly was hand picked to travel to the US to participate in classes at the famous 'Millennium' and 'Edge' dance studios with noted choreographers Tony Czar, Kevin Maher, Brian Friedman, Tabitha and Napoleon (So You Think You Can Dance) and Chris Jones from the movies You Got Served 1 and 2. During this time, Kelly was honoured to be selected to perform in 'Carnival' (which was the first prize award for the Australian SYTYCD winner) in LA for Britney Spears's choreographer Andre Fuentes. A short time after, Kelly was chosen to tour with Andre Fuentes as his personal assistant and travelled to New Zealand and across many states of Australia. Upon returning she organised Wollongong’s biggest ever workshop with international choreographers. Kelly is honoured and proud of her accomplishments thus far and has a deep passion for the dance industry. She is delighted to embark on this new adventure at Dance Trilogy!

APRIL MAGUIRE

April started dancing locally at the age of 3. Whilst she enjoyed all genres of dance it quickly became apparent that she had a natural aptitude for classical ballet. She attended Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts and at the age of 16 began her full-time training at the Tanya Pearson Classical Coaching Academy, where she was mentored by luminaries in the ballet world such as Lucinda Dunn, Paul Boyd, Wim Broeckx, Katie Pianoff and many others. In her 3 years at TPCCA she was fortunate enough to perform in many leading roles for the Sydney City Youth Ballet such as the lead roles of Sugar Plum Fairy and the Snow Queen from The Nutcracker. She has been two time semi-finalist in the Sydney Eisteddfod Senior Ballet scholarship. She also received offers of placement at several prestigious European schools and invited as a guest performer in New Caledonia and throughout Europe.

Eventually April chose to finalise her training at TPCCA and moved to Melbourne to join the Melbourne City Ballet. In 2018 she accepted a contract with the West Australian Ballet and was immediately cast in the principal role in their opening season. During her professional career, April has danced in many productions, including La Sylphide, Dracula, Don Quixote, Carmen and The Nutcracker, as well as many contemporary pieces. April is excited to join the teaching staff of Dance Trilogy and is looking forward to mentoring the next generation of dancers.
