These values have inspired her work with FLING, and as a result she has created and facilitated a broad range of work that has engaged, activated and inspired her regional community.
Gabrielle holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Performance Creation (Choreography) from the Victorian College of the Arts, a Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Education (Dance and Theatre Studies) from the University of New South Wales and was a participant in the Solo Performance Residency at Victoria University. In both Australia and the UK Gabrielle has presented her own choreographic work, facilitated learning and making processes, worked as a performer and produced events that served as a platform for other dance artists. Gabrielle was also recipient of the Wilma Firth Award for outstanding achievement in Dance Education.
