Issy McNabb

HI, I'm Issy and I'm extremely excited to join the team at Dance Out Loud to share my passion of dancing with everyone.                                                                                                    I've grown up dancing from the age of five and have never looked back, it's the ignition to my spark and I just LOVE it!                                                                                                                       It's taken me overseas to Australia where I took a year long course at Patrick Studios Australia, where I performed in many a shows and events.                                                              I was lucky enough to be trained by some of the industry's best. Now I'm back in beautiful wanaka working full time as a hairdresser and giving back the joy that dancing has given me.
