Stacey Kenealy is taking the entertainment world by storm. The Australian talent has graced stages all over the world; Italy, Thailand, Russia, and France, Dubai, Malta and Singapore to name but a few places. She has also modelled for well-known and lucrative brands such as Lipton Ice tea, Lorna Jane, David Jones and Coca Cola. She first took to the stage at the tender age of 4, appeared in her first professional show in Dubai at the age of 12, and can now be seen dancing, modelling or acting on stages and television screens all over the world.
Stacey’s career as a performer took off as soon as she graduated highschool. She was thrust into the professional world on a commercial dance contact touring Malaysia, and then went straight onto performing in the stage production – ‘Zingara’ at Jupiter’s Casino in Queensland, Australia. Stacey didn’t slow down there though, after completing a 14 month contract she packed her bags and moved to one of the most beautiful cities in the world – Paris, to perfect the art of the French Can Can and perform in the world famous cabaret – The Moulin Rouge. Not only a swing in the show, Stacey was also Can Can Soloist. She toured with the Moulin Rouge on a number of occasions, performing all around the world for various television and stage commitments.
Stacey says performing at the Moulin Rouge was definitely one of her career highlights, but also loves that she is able to cross over the fields of dancing, modelling and acting, as it has given her opportunities to work with some great artists. Some of those credits include performing with Jessica Mauboy and Ricky Martin at the Australian NRL Grand Final, performing with Australia pop group Human Nature, dancing for various artist on the hit reality TV show The X Factor, and most recently performing with Jessica Mauboy at the 2014 Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony in Glasgow, Scotland. Other career highlights include shooting for international active wear brand Lorna Jane, appearing in David Jones’ Autumn/Winter14 Brand book, and shooting a National campaign for Lipton Ice Tea in Australia and New Zealand.
It is incredible to see how much drive Stacey Kenealy has to push her boundaries and excel in different facets of the entertainment industry. When asked who her biggest inspiration is, Stacey is quick to say Jennifer Lopez! Not only because she has mastered all fields of the entertainment industry; being a successful singer, actor, dancer and producer, but because she is also extremely business savvy. She has created a business empire consisting of clothing lines, fragrances and other business ventures…she is a female powerhouse! Who wouldn’t want to be a little bit like her?
Stacey Kenealy may only just be spreading her wings and showing Australia, and the world what she’s got, but considering how much this Australian beauty has already accomplished in her career to date, we can’t wait to see what she’ll do next!
