Biography: Australian Natalie had an early start in the dancing world, when she began dancing at the age of five, and has been competing at national and international level for the past 20 years. Although Natalie now specialises in both Ballroom and Australian New Vogue disciplines, she is still keen on Latin American dancing as well. Natalie's professional dance partner is Stefano Olivieri, and initially their work was concentrated on performances in shows and musicals, but they quickly decided they wanted to compete in the sport, and have won many Australian New Vogue titles over the course of the last few years.
Natalie is no stranger to the television celebrity dance competition, taking part in Australia's Dancing With The Stars, winning the series in 2006 with AFL player Anthony Koutafides, and joined Strictly Come Dancing for the seventh series when she had her best result finishing runner-up with actor Ricky Whittle and has continued to compete in the show since. Due to sustaining an injury during pre-series training, Natalie was unable to compete in series 11, but returned for series 12.
