 Trained in Auckland in Classical Ballet (RAD) Modern and Contemporary Dance to Advanced and Solo Seal Professional level, Marie has directed and been the principal educator in her modern dance school for twenty years. Over this period students under her guidance have gone on to follow professional careers in dance, drama (theatre and Television) and fashion (international modelling).

The ability to paint and express herself two dimensionally influences Marie’s creative conceptions with choreography, costume design and lighting arrangements in the arena of dance.

In addition to directing and instructing Stow Austin Studio, she enjoys pursuing her passion for Fine Arts with large mixed media painting and drawings.
