Helen started dancing at a very early age, studying Ballet and Tap. At 15, Helen won the coveted Lily Ellison Award and two years later she met her future husband Robert, taking up Ballroom and Latin dancing. Her competitive career included becoming undefeated All England Latin Champion as well as the South of England Latin Champion and the Imperial Latin Champion. In the major international events, Helen was placed third in the World Professional Latin Championship, equal third in the British Professional LatinChampionship, runner-up in the United Kingdom Professional Latin and was twice placed third in the International Professional Latin Championship. After retiring from competitive dancing, Helen has become one of the world’s leading coaches and most sought-after adjudicators. She has judged the national dance championships of almost every country in the world. Helen has coached World Champions, British Champions and Australian Champions. Many of the professional dancers in all of the series of Dancing With The Stars have been trained wholly or in part by Helen. An accomplished and skilled dressmaker, she makes the beautiful gowns that she wears on the show. Undoubtedly Australia’s most successful professional Latin dancer, Helen has been referred to as an icon of Dancesport and certainly deserves the title, “Australia’s First Lady of Latin.”
