Liz Ede trained in dance at the Scottish Ballet School and Theatre School of Dance and Drama in Edinburgh but decided to spread her wings and travel to Germany, where she worked as an au pair while studying at the Berlin Opera Ballet School. While on a visit to relatives in Australia she fell in love with the country and decided to make it her home.

In 1990 she returned to study fitness at Victoria University, specialising in older adults. Since then, Liz has been a regular tutor at CAE, as well as at various private and community classes in Melbourne such as Downtown Theatre Co., Studio 56, Hawthorn Community Mental Health Clinic, and Harold Holt Swim Centre. At the CAE, Liz has developed courses specifically for older adults utilising other disciplines (such as Yoga, Tai-Chi and Pilates) as well as bringing in ideas and knowledge from her dancing background.

Anyone over 50 
• suffering from health problems that restrict their movement
• wishing to work at their own pace in a friendly relaxed atmosphere
• pursue a preventative approach to health
