About Andrew...

You can’t say Andrew doesn’t have his hands full. He’s the Head of Junior School at Nowra Anglican College and is married with 3 kids and a dog! Nonetheless, he has found time in his busy schedule to bust a few moves for the community and Cancer Council NSW, something his students will no doubt be eager to seeAlthough his dance experience only goes as far as jamming with his 5-year-old daughterMr Thompson isn’t completely a stranger to the stage, having a bit of a history with marathon running. With this and his dream dance partner being The Wiggles, we don’t think we’ll be yelling “Wake up, Jeff!”  


Dance Partner


Tanika Pel

Tanika is 27 and the owner of Studio19 in Jervis Bay. She first opened the studio in 2015 but have been dancing for a long as she can remember. From a young age she knew she wanted to teach so set her career goals, studied hard, gained the certificates and here she is, 6 years down the road and I absolutely loves what she does. 

Tanika was trained in all styles however definitely found her love in Modern & Ballet. She really enjoys emotional pieces of dance and watching stories be told. 

Highlights from her dance background include performing at the Olympic Opening Ceremony, Opera House Finalist Performances, Company Selection Teams and Working with choreographers who she adored growing up including Mia Michaels, Ben Veitch, BJ Rorke, Vanis Marshal, Stephan Tannos and Mandy Moore, to name a few. 

Tanika is now the proud mum of 2 kiddies, Sophia and Bentley and can't wait to watch them grow on their dance journey.
