Atira is a lively and expressive fifteen year old who is able to inject her own vibrant personality into every performance. From the age of eight, Atira has been taking singing and speech and drama lessons and has won many awards at the Perth Speech and Drama Festival. She feels perfectly comfortable being on any stage and performing for large audiences. Some of her favourite performance opportunities include playing the role of 'Chip' in "Beauty and the Beast" and singing the Australian National Anthem at the 2014 WA Australian of the Year awards ceremony. She is quick to follow direction and develop ideas appropriately. As well as singing and acting, Atira has a great love of ballet. Since the age of two, ballet has been a part of her busy weekly schedule and she has recently been awarded a distinction in her Grade 6 RAD exam. She was born in England and moved to Perth in 2004.
