Hello, am a former professional dancer and now a fully qualified, DBS checked dance teacher and Zumba ZIN member, registered with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and a member of the International School of Dance Teachers (ISTD), so that you know you or your child are receiving tried and tested methods of dance teaching with safety standards kept to the highest level.

Currently teaching RAD ballet (from Pre-Primary through to Advanced Foundation) at both the lovely Hasland Dance studios and at my shared school The Bridge Academy of Performing Arts in Rochester, with Lynne Brownette, where we also have ballet classes for adults too.

For those who prefer something a little livelier, I teach Zumba ... also at the Hasland Dance Studios.

I also work with The Right Step Dance Company bringing dance to the community where I teach their Active Armchairs program for older frailer adults.

Ballet, Modern, Jazz or Zumba, whichever you fancy, there is a class for you.
