Dr Andrea Robertson is an Osteopath, Nutritionist, Naturopath and ex-professional dancer with a strong interest in health and wellness. She is passionate about inspiring clients to lead healthier and happier lives. With a strong background in dance, yoga and Pilates, along with her extensive anatomy training and intricate understanding of the human body, Andrea has created a barre program like no other. Her mission is to spread the message of health and wellness as far as possible, inspiring and teaching others to then inspire and teach also.
Andrea’s dance background started with 15 years training in the Vagonova method of classical ballet, which she began at the age of 3. In her late teens she was invited to tour Europe, visiting and dancing at the Vagonova Ballet Academy in Russia, The Hamburg and Munich Ballet schools in Germany and competing at the prestigious Prix de Lausanne International Ballet Competition, where she was a quarter finalist. Although Andrea always wanted to be a ballerina, she grew too tall for ballet, so as an alternative, discovered the wonderful world of cabaret and commercial dance and enjoyed great success in this genre of dance. Andrea danced professionally for 12 years locally and internationally, including at the world famous Moulin Rouge in Paris, Son Amar in Spain and with Carnival Cruises in the USA. Back home in Australia, through her agent, Grayboy Entertainment, Andrea danced with the Sydney Showboat, Australian Idol, The Aria Awards, and in numerous corporate events and film clips.
Andrea has been an Osteopath since 2000, after completing her Bachelor and Masters degrees through Victoria University. In 2018, she added to her qualifications with an Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy and an Advanced Diploma in Nutrition. In 2008, Andrea opened Southside Clinic, a large multi-disciplinary clinic in Adelaide, Australia. Here she works along other allied health practitioners, seeing patients for both Osteopathy and Naturopathy/Nutrition consultations and well as teaching Barre, Adult Ballet and Yoga classes.
In 2012, Andrea opened her first barre studio, growing the business to 2 studios in Adelaide by 2015. In 2017, Andrea created The Barre Clinic program. The very first Barre Clinic studio is located within her allied health clinic, Southside Clinic, in Unley, Adelaide.
Andrea’s Pilates training is through Dance Medicine Australia, and her Yoga Teacher Training is through the Byron Yoga School.
