I began my dance training at the age of 3 under Pamela Smith school of Dance, I continued through to my early 20’s under Miss Sandra Knight as she founded Vision Dance School. I took graded exams in Ballet, Tap and Modern up to Foundation level, alongside medal tests and theatrical awards. My favorite discipline to dance was Ballet, I think my love for ballet shines through in areas of my teaching , technique and controlled movements blends perfectly into my Acro, stretch and conditioning classes. Alongside my dance training I began my teaching journey as Miss Sandras Teaching Assistant in Tap, Ballet and Modern classes from the age of 15. After completing school and my dance grades I went onto complete my A Levels including A Level Dance.
After leaving school at 18, I took a job as a Gymnastics Coach, over 10 years I trained up to Level 3 and hold qualifications in Gymnastics, Women’s Artistic, Tumbling and Trampolining, Fitness Instruction and Exercise to Music.
When the opportunity came along to Teach Acro classes for Vision it was the perfect blend of Dance and Gymnastics for me and an opportunity I’ll be forever grateful for. I have been Teaching the Acro classes here at Vision since 2009 and I absolutely love it. To see each dancer progress and grow is an absolute privilege.
