Putting it quite simply, I love to dance, I love to teach and I love living in Sussex by the sea!
I started ballet class when I was three years old but was far too interested in swinging on the ballet barres at my godmother’s dance studios than actually trying to learn anything. So back I went at four years old with a little more concentration and a tummy full of excitable butterflies and that was it, I was hooked! I was a fairy, a ballerina, Little Miss Muffet, a mouse! A world of imagination and beautiful music was opened up to me with a little bit of discipline thrown in without me even realising it. I was a very happy girl. I went on to learn ballet, tap, modern, jazz, contemporary and national dance and take advanced exams in many of them (AISTD). I went on to study at Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and performed briefly professionally as a contemporary dancer and also taught and choreographed before regrettably having to give up due to injury.
Nothing else I tried could substitute for the joy I felt when dancing so after a few years of working in an office I went back to my first love. I qualified through bbodance and I am now passing on my knowledge and passion in a safe and supportive dance environment. Dancing makes me happy and I love teaching others how to walk that little bit taller and feel good about themselves.
I teach adults from 18 yrs to well over 80 yrs old and children from 18 months old upwards. I have an enhanced DBS and also First Aid Certificate via the British Red Cross.
