I started dance classes when I was 5 and trained with the United Teachers of Dance. I achieved my Associate Dance Teacher Qualification when I was 18.

I have taught dance ever since, including evening adult classes with Devon County Council and Children’s dance lessons with Torridge District Council.

I started teaching Dance and Fitness at Petroc in 1998 to learners with SEN – and gained a real passion for making Performing Arts inclusive. In 2003 I qualified with QTS as a Primary School Teacher and started to teach Dance and Performing Arts in local primary schools both through the curriculum and after school clubs.

I developed a Dance curriculum for a local primary school and taught in the school as a Dance specialist. I have since passed my passion for dance on to my two daughters!

I have been part of the LDA team since 2014 and am currently working towards my Licentiate Teaching Qualification.
