The Principal Linda Smith, is very well qualified in all aspects of performing, and a lifetime member of the IDTA International Teachers Association and the RAD Royal Academy of Dance – Two of the world’s leading dance examination boards.

Charlotte and Linda regularly attend conferences and seminars for their own continued professional development, and to keep up to date with new trends in the dance world.

They are both Enhanced DBS Checked, First aiders and have public liability insurance in place, and are happy to reassure parents and provide evidence of these upon request. They are trained in technique, theory, anatomy and safe practise for your child’s well-being.

Charlotte and Linda are also very proud to be producers of shows for the last 8 years in the West end of London, Blackpool  and Disneyland Paris. They believe that all children and adults alike should have a once in a lifetime chance to perform on a world stage and develop to their full potential regardless of their class, age and ability and be able to experience the pride that many people take for granted.

They realise the importance of giving opportunities to not just the young performers but everyone who loves to perform, including special needs and the older generation.

We have worked extremely hard to become the dance teachers we are, but will never forget all the fun and enjoyment we have experienced along the way. We hope your child will have a similar experience to ours and we will endeavour to make sure this happens!

You have to work hard to become a successful dancer, but there s no point if we forget the main reason we dance – and that is to get fit, enjoy ourselves, make new friends and have fun!
