Dance Dynamic

Dance Dynamic studios is a family owned and operated dance school, established in 2014 and run by Lucinda Berendt and her two daughters Chontelle and Mikaela.

Lucinda commenced dancing at a young age under the careful tutelage of the late Mrs. Dolly MacKinnon. Successfully competing in numerous competitions and eisteddfods, her love for all genres of dance soon became evident. Her passion for dance continued into her adult years passing on her knowledge to students, some of which went on to pursue professional dance careers. Lucinda has adjudicated at many eisteddfods throughout NSW over the last 12 years and continues to do so.

Chontelle and Mikaela commenced dancing at a very young age and like their mum, soon developed a love for dance. Both Chontelle and Mikaela secured a multitude of awards and scholarships growing up, including winning many places at the infamous McDonald’s Challenge. Chontelle went on to further her studies where she graduated in performing arts at the prestigious Brent Street Studios in Sydney. She has a passion for choreography and continues to share her knowledge with our students nurturing their individual abilities. Mikaela is a versatile and determined dancer, excelling in all genres of dance including ballet, Jazz, Tap and Lyrical/Contemporary and Hip Hop. Mikaela is a very passionate and enthusiastic teacher and loves enhancing our students’ skills.

In 2020 Dance Dynamic expanded their wings, opening a second studio in Blayney which is going well.

Lucinda, Chontelle, Mikaela and their students are proud to be part of Stars of Bathurst Dance For Cancer. Giving to such a worth cause is a privilege. To learn more about Dance Dynamic Studios, please call 0414 796 440 or find us on Facebook.
