Teachers

Hilary

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.

  1. Love your biography and love your passion. Keep excitment in your adult classes, they always need moral support if they have never danced before. Keep dicipline in your children’s classes, it will pay off when they become dancers. I will follow your posts.

    1. Thank you, I am so privileged to be teaching both children and adults and so many keep coming back for more! I must be doing something right! I’m having fun and I can’t wait for each class, it makes my heart sing. It’s a joy to see improvement and to inspire the young and the young at heart alike! I’ve just got to keep it fresh, keep preparing good classes with great music and have just enough discipline for children to learn properly but also enough fun for little ones to help the art of ballet and dance capture their hearts and create a life long passion.
