She’s also taught Performing Arts to children from two years old, and adults at various schools around Sydney. Ruby became an instant hit with kids as her playful, cheeky and caring teaching style resonated through each of her classes, expanding into private lessons and party entertainment.
Ruby started working at Kinderling Kids Radio in 2016. In 2017 Ruby became the national radio station’s Children’s Presenter and Together Time Producer. 2017 also saw the birth of her live, interactive, dance entertainment show for kids and their grownups, Together Time Live.
