10 years after opening my school in Moseley with just a handful of students, I am delighted to now be able to offer a much wider range of dance opportunities not only to my dedicated students but alsoto new students and adults. As always, due to my background with The Royal ballet School and Birmingham Royal ballet, the core of my classes lie within ballet but I am now able to include other beneficial dance and exercise forms such as yoga, pilates and contemporary.
