Teaching - Teaching is an absolute joy and love to work both one-to-one or with large groups. If you have never danced before, just starting or an experienced dancer who wishes to tidy up their technique, I would love to work with you. I am a fully qualified classical ballet teacher (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing- Cecchetti Branch) who trained at The Rambert School of Dance. I have taught dance classes for the The Imperial Ball, The Cecchetti Society and 'The National Center for the Folk Arts', Halsway Manor.
