Natalie Lowe Biography – Natalie Lowe Wiki

Natalie Lowe is an Australian dancer and choreographer, known for her role on Australia’s Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) and the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. Her speciality is Ballroom dancing. She is a four-time Australian ballroom dance champion. She is also a skin care therapist and make-up artist.

Natalie was born into a family of five in 1980 in Sydney, Australia. Her parents weren’t dancers, apart from the occasional shuffle around the kitchen table, but she was encouraged by her neighbours to start ballroom dancing at the local Seven Hills RSL club in 1985.

Natalie had her first try-out in 1986. She later decided she wanted to dance with her brother Glenn, an amateur champion who was five years older than her. This meant that she missed out most of her junior years to dance with him and went straight to the adult category.

Together, the siblings competed in many small, intensive trips overseas and had lessons from some of the world’s best teachers. Natalie was planning to move to Europe to further her dance education and training, but due to a family illness she stayed in Australia. What she didn’t realise at the time, was that this would be the start of her Strictly story, as she was picked to be a regular dancer on Dancing With The Stars in Australia.

When Natalie’s not dancing, she has a whole host of hobbies and interests to keep her occupied including fishing, surfing, camping, water-skiing and walking her labrador.

I used to work as a beauty therapist nearby and walk down to the beach most lunchtimes. It is such an incredible place – and what better time to get wed than the Australian summer? The whole day was filled with lots of laughter, singing and dancing. The Public Dining Room was perfect for our guests to unwind and enjoy amazing Australian food and wine.”
