About Me:
I have been happily married for 30 years and have 3 gorgeous children, all now adults and making their own way in the world.
The ballet was my first love and I was training to dance professionally with a ballet company, however, an injury at 18 made that impossible.  I fell into teaching when my eldest daughter started ballet lessons and I haven’t looked back since.  I have now been teaching for over 20 years and have run my own school for the last 10.  The school has a small but lovely team of teachers, delivering classes to students ranging from 2 1/2 to 80+.  We like to be as inclusive as possible, firmly believe that anyone can learn to dance, and it’s definitely never too late to start!
When time allows I love to read, nothing too highbrow, just something to take me out of my head to another world for a little while.  Gardening is also a great way to clear my head, and though the jobs are never ever done it gives me a wonderful feeling of satisfaction.
