Our Five Star Story

Astrid Chiochiu (ARAD, ATOD affiliate) began dancing at the age of 4. Winning multiple championships and bursaries, Astrid studied with the Queensland Dance School of Excellence at the age of 16. She also owned and operated a RAD ballet school for 6 years.

Astrid went on to represent Australia as a Professional Dancer throughout Europe, where she met her husband, Anatolie. For 11 years Astrid danced throughout Europe, Asia and the United States, and has held positions of Company Manager, Soloist, Lead Adagio Act, and Line Captain, for various International Companies. Over the past 5 years, Astrid has been training other Professional Dancers in LA and Las Vegas for Production Shows.

Astrid has been an Assistant Director, Choreographer, Talent Scout and Trainer for NYK and Crystal Cruises. Now, after starting their family, Astrid is excited to teach in Australia again and pass on her international knowledge and experience to her students.

Love in Life & Dance

Dancing together, Astrid and Anatolie elegantly created a true story of ‘When I Fall In Love.’ The image captured here of Anatolie lifting Astrid effortlessly has been transformed into the Five Star Dance Academy logo. A love of dance and love in life captured.

Astrid and Anatolie now have 2 beautiful children Annika and Stefan who have also embraced the dancing world with the same passion as their parents. A Five Star Dancing family.
