Meet your TAPfit Melbourne Instructors
You will rediscover your love of tap dancing with TAPfit Melbourne Instructor Lisa Koba, or if you have never tap danced before you will have an absolute ball learning!
Lisa's love of dance started at the tender age of 4 in her native state of South Australia under the close guidance of Glenda Furnell. Lisa has such wonderful memories of the many hours spent in the dance studio.
After completing secondary school Lisa set off to Melbourne to follow her dancing dreams. She was fortunate enough to study under the under the leadership of Jillian Fitzgerald, Anne Marie Brazier, Janet Liddell and Greg Mills. Lisa taught at dance schools around Melbourne and worked as a freelance performer in Theatre Restaurants, on television, and at charity and corporate events.
Early in 2016 Lisa wanted to fuse her love of dance together with a general fitness regime so she completed her Certificate III in Personal Training at the Australian Fitness Academy. Lisa is now excited to be bringing TAPfit to Melbourne.
Come and join Lisa at one of her classes and let's get TAPfit together!
