JADE

OWNER & TEACHER

I always danced as a hobby when I was a child, to find that this hobby continued to grow to become a leading part of my education. I attended evening classes throughout my childhood, leading me to study dance at GCSE and 'A' Level. Continuing my education in Contemporary Dance, I achieved a 2:1 degree in BA (Hons) Performing Arts: Contemporary Dance with The University of Brighton where I was awarded a scholarship for my achievements. I have a huge passion for teaching having studied technical, historical and creative movement for many years, with a large amount of my focus being spent on teaching techniques and methodology. I have studied Contemporary Dance & Ballet throughout my dance education and career, studying many different techniques with experience in teaching all ages.

Throughout these years, the aim has always been to help children grow in confidence and become the best version of themselves possible. This goes hand-in-hand with teaching them to work as a team, to be a leader and to connect with themselves and communicate well with others.

 

Dance is more than just movements performed to music - it teaches unity, determination, mindfulness, commitment and problem solving. It develops creative skills and teaches you how to connect with your own mental/emotional states whilst of course encouraging a healthy lifestyle. 

 

It's an outlet and a stress release where we can have fun with our favourite people, all whilst being productive and achieving fantastic things. But most importantly, it brings us laughter, love and it shows us the true meaning of friendship.  I truly believe that by teaching these important skills at a young age, they will carry them through to help them live a happy & healthy life.
