Move to retail full-time an intimates affair for dancer

FROM her bubbly demeanour you would not know dancer Jenny Dimitrov was recovering from a broken foot.

It's her positive personality that makes the 23-year-old the perfect fit for working in retail.

The assistant store manager at Gladstone's Bras N Things made the transition from part-time to full-time hours at the store last year.

"It's the satisfaction that you get from working in this type of job," she said.

"You do get pretty close with your customers."

A Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Secondary) graduate, Ms Dimitrov was previously teaching a multitude of genres at local studio Dance 4 Fun.

Her studies meant she was away from Gladstone, which she has called "home" since moving here 15 years ago from South Africa with her family, for a few years in Brisbane.

While in Brisbane she worked casually at a Bras N Things store.

She said the fact her family lived here, the sunny climate and tight-knit community atmosphere prompted her move back to the region.

Ms Dimitrov said although a lot of people may complain there is not much to do in the region, there is a lot of variety in terms of events.

"There's really a lot on that I didn't even realise until I started looking for things to do," she said.

Ms Dimitrov is a member of Rotaract and being involved with the organisation keeps her busy and lets her know about what is going on in the area.

Make sure you pick up a copy of Saturday's paper for the weekly Style section, in which Jenny Dimitrov is joined by other local women showcasing a range of stock from Bras N Things that will make perfect presents for your mum this Mother's Day.
