The SUPERSTARS Team
Rachael Tiernan started SUPERSTARS in 2003 in her parent’s garage for fun when her 5 young neighbours wanted to learn to dance. Now SUPERSTARS has well and truly outgrown the family garage and has become a well known local performing school with over 650 students.
Rachael graduated from Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Creative Industries (Drama & Dance) and continues to share her passion of the performing arts with the SUPERSTARS community. Performing from the young age of 3, Rachael has participated in many stage productions, films and live events over the past 32 years.
Rach loves to Emcee corporate and fundraising events, hosts the very popular “SUPERSTARS Birthday Parties”, sings in her band (The Party Club) and loves providing local talent to corporate events.
Rachael and her husband, Ryan have two Hip Hopin’ Groovin’ Tap dancers Patrick (9) and Joseph (7).
