Heidi Tyrrell (aka Azura) is a Multidisciplinary Artist, Belly Dance Teacher, Choreographer, Performer, and Percussionist of over 25 years. Her Solo and Troupe Performances have featured at major events across Australia, Internationally, and on Television. Heidi’s Multicultural Arts Programs Jungle Shimmy and Rhythm Empire, have toured extensively with Regional Arts Victoria, and are currently endorsed by Cultural Infusion.
Heidi’s Visual Art Portfolio is influenced by her Anglo-Indian heritage, motherhood, and her work with children, adults and the elderly. Her two and three-dimensional creations are a joyous exploration of color, light, and materiality, palpitating themes of hope and connection through symbolic references, portraiture, and dream-like narratives.
Heidi obtained her Certificate III in Visual Art NCAT in 2019, her Certificate IV Leisure and Health in 2020, and is working toward her Diploma of Painting at Melbourne Polytechnic. Heidi currently teaches group and private Bellydance Classes for Beginners to Advanced level students, performs Bellydance and Multicutural Arts Programs across Melbourne, and provides Active Music and Dance Programs and Entertainment for the elderly.
