My Training.

 I have been dancing from the age of 3, starting with ballet then adding tap, modern and Jazz, taking all grades and vocational exams with the Royal Academy  of Dance and  the ISTD. Aged 21, whilst working in London I became pregnant and my teacher suggested take on a teaching role. To my surprise I enjoyed it so much I decided to enrol on the teaching programmes in all genres and completed my teaching qualifications.        I have also now mentored trainee teachers for the Royal Academy of Dance with great success. The passion for teaching dance grows more and more as I see young people progress and have the confidence to take on new ventures with their dancing, equally to see more mature dancers simply enjoying the freedom and fun of dance.
