Teagan made her professional contemporary debut with Sydney Dance Company in the 2005 World Premiere season of ‘Hua Mulan’, which was presented as part of the ‘Shanghai International Arts Festival’ before being invited to join the full Company ensemble. During my 4 1/2 years with Sydney Dance, I performed much of Graeme Murphy’s repertoire & toured extensively with the company throughout Australia, Asia, Europe & America. In addition to her position as the Principal Dancer with SDC, she was also asked to perform for International Galas, Festivals, The Australian Dance & Helpmann Awards, in Movies and TV Series and has also been the face and a sponsored dancer of Australia’s leading Dancewear range, Energetiks, for the past eight years.
In 2009 Teagan joined Graeme Murphy to perform as a Principal Dancer in ‘AIDA’ for Opera Australia, which led to performing with OA for years to follow. This then opened up other performance opportunities with the State Opera of South Australia, Queensland Opera, and the Adelaide & Sydney Festivals.

As a young dancer, Kalman appeared in Coppélia with The Australian Ballet; English National Ballet’s Swan Lake Arena production, and The Dancers’ Company’s consecutive tours of The Nutcracker as the Mouse King and many other characters.
Kalman joined Sydney Dance Company under the directorship of Graeme Murphy and Janet Vernon and toured extensively across Australia as well as to China for the Shanghai International Festival, to nine cities across the United States and to Christchurch International Festival.
