IT WAS a big surprise for Natasha Drower when she won the Business Person of the Year award at the Blacktown City Local Business Awards on May 7.
"It is always lovely to know that all your hard work is recognise and appreciated," she said.
"This just inspires me to do and achieve so much more."
Ms Drower is the principal of Natasha's Arts Theatre, which has been part of the Marayong community since 2002.
She offers classes in various dance styles, acrobatics, singing, body basics and zumba.
"I feel incredibly lucky to have a team of amazing teachers and we all love what we do," she said.
"I think our shared passion for dance and helping our students grow and develop as performers is greatly valued by our customers."
She said Natasha's Arts Theatre encouraged every student to strive for their best.
"With super-low class fees, we give students the opportunity to develop their skills in a variety of different styles," she said.
