Coming from Bath it was my ambition to provide an accessible, affordable, professional training facility within the South West. With professional vocational performing arts / drama schools previouslyonly existing in London or the north of England, students from the region now have an opportunity to access vocational training at a professional level. I was very lucky in receiving funding for my training at the Royal Ballet School. Being a dancer is the most amazing job.

Most people know what to expect from a Ballet or Tap class, but I often get asked 'what is Modern Dance?' Think of Musical Theatre - Cats, Fame, and think of X-Factor backing dancers!

A little bit about myself. I have loved dancing for as long as I can remember - I did ballet classes as a small child and then when on Holiday in Bognor with my parents, grandparents and sister I sawladies in big bustly dresses twirling around the dance floor doing old time and modern sequence dancing (like on the old "Come Dancing" programme).
