MEET THE TEAM

WENDY STAPLETON

PRINCIPAL, THE AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S CHOIR

Wendy formed the Australian Womens Choir in July 2014. The idea for the choir came about as a result of Wendy training children to sing and perform for The Stapleton Dance Academy and then going on to train adults in these skills at a performance level for both professional and non professional artists.

“ I saw the joy people experienced when they performed, whether it be singing, dancing or acting. So to be able to give people the chance to perform at a certain level was an obvious next step for me"
