With a strong passion for teaching and fitness, there is no greater calling for Jocelyn than instructing a dance class after a long day of teaching at school.

Born and bred in Mackay, Jocelyn now resides in Marian where she has lived since 2010, after moving around Queensland for University and various teaching positions.

Jocelyn has loved dancing since she was two years old. When she was 16 she started assisting dance classes and found that mentoring others was her true passion, completing her first dance teacher exams at just 17.

At University, Jocelyn studied high school teaching. After her studies, moved to

Charter Towers for first teaching job, but she also taught dance while there.

During this time, her strong passion for teaching dance continued to grow, and in 2012 Jocelyn opened Fusion Dance & Fitness where she specialises in a broad range of techniques including Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Hip-Hop, Contemporary and Acro. She also holds a Certificate 3 & 4 in Fitness and Nutrition.

Despite all these great achievements and landmark moments in a successful career, Jocelyn says the birth of her two children remain the best thing to happen to her. In her spare time, when she isn’t teaching at school or teaching dance, she loves to sing and draw. She also loves to go camping, crabbing or fishing with her family.
