Natalie Trollinger began her formal study of dance at Collin College in Plano, Texas, where she was a member of the Collin Dance Ensemble. She then transferred to Illinois State University and earned her Bachelor of Science in Theatre with an emphasis in Dance Performance. During her undergraduate studies she attended the American College Dance Association conference four years in a row and performed in two gala concerts. Post-graduation, Natalie shifted her focus and took a break from performing. It was a momentary pause, for Natalie could not pass up the opportunity to audition for Full Circle Dance and continue performing.
"To travel a circle is to journey over the same ground time and time again. To travel a circle wisely is to journey over the same ground for the first time. In this way, the ordinary becomes extraordinary, and the circle, a path to where you wish to be. And when you notice at last that the path has circled back to itself, you realize that where you wish to be is where you have already been … and always were." - Neale Donald Walsch
“This statement resonates with me because I have come back to an environment that seems familiar to me. There are familiar faces and familiar movement, yet it is different . . . it is even better this time around.” - Natalie
