From the age of 3 I have been involved in Dance. My love of dance was initially born in local dance studios where I studied a variety of dance styles and genres. I studied a number of dance syllabi including RAD and ISTD. Over the years, I have performed in and choregraphed a number of different dance productions.
In 2005, I participtated in a national competition which saw me performing at a Dance Grand Prix in Barcelona.
In order to ensure that i had many strings to my bow I opted to attend university and studied to become a primary school teacher. I loved this job and whilst in this role, I taught Dance as part of the P.E. National Curriculum. However, Dance was only a small part of the job and i found myself beginning to miss my dance career. Therefore, I decided to embark on a career which would enable me to combine my pedagogic understanding and my love of Dance.
As a result, I started to research career oportunities which would enable me to combine teaching and dance. Over the years I had witnessed many dance coaches coming into the school environment and teaching sessions. However, whilst many of them had dance knowledge very few of them had a full grasp of classroom management, task delivery and assessment. I knew that in order to be successful a dance coach must be a teacher first and dance specialist second. I was delighted to come across Dance In Education Services who were clearly a company that combined pedagogy and dance. I approached the company to ascertain more information and quickly determined that this was the career path for me.
I am thoroughly enjoying running and operating my own branch in Wigan. I am delighted to now have a career that combines my love of teaching and dance.
