Moving to North Queensland in 2014 Andrea coordinated a Performing Arts department in the Burdekin Shire delivering a Certificate III in Performing Arts, whilst completing a Diploma in Dance Teaching Studies with the Royal Academy of Dance, a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, and Pilates instructor qualifications.

Andrea then moved to Gurambillbarra (Townsville) commencing full time in 2018 as Dancenorth’s Community Experience Coordinator.
