Telea started ballet when she was 5 years old and completed her early dance training in Toowoomba with Garden City Dance.
After finding an interest in contemporary, she then completed a Diploma of Dance with Queensland College of Dance in Brisbane and has performed with youth companies such as Merge Dance Theatre, Expressions Dance Company’s Youth Ensemble, and Brisbane City Youth Ballet.
In 2019 Telea studied an Advanced Diploma of Dance with Sydney Dance Company’s Pre-Professional Year and received a scholarship from the Doug Hall Foundation. During the year she had the opportunity to perform works by choreographers Idan Cohen, Vicki Van Hout, Leah Marojevic and Rafael Bonachela’s Lux Tenebris.
