Making dance lessons easy...
Dance is a funny subject to teach, it doesn't have a logical, linear format, which I think makes it 'equally cursed as blessed'. Once you feel confident with it as a subject it gives you great freedom - but until then it feels difficult to grasp.
I can help you there - I can take that uncertainty away & give you the simple steps to make your dance lessons a success.
I work from a theme or topic based approach - my lessons support and consolidate the learning that takes place in other subject areas.
So let me know the theme, the age group of your students and I will create challenging, engaging and exciting lessons that are easy to follow and replicate.

I've been teaching dance in primary & secondary schools since 1990.
In that time I've delivered in a very wide range of schools as both a teacher and a visiting artist.
I've been delivering INSET for primary schools for over 20 years now & through that time I have refined the process to make it straightforward and accessible to teachers & students.
My hope, when you watch me teach, attend the INSET or read through the lesson plans, is that you think... 'I could do that'.

What the teachers say...
It’s been great, really insightful, useful and I can honestly say it’s been a pleasure – you were so flexible too. Everyone thought you were ace!
It was a privilege to watch an expert teach dance today. All the children were fully engaged throughout . I was so proud of how they worked together and what they produced; it was such a delight to see

Your ideas and delivery was exceptional and helped the staff to see how they could develop their own practice. Everyone commented about how engaged the children were and how much they enjoyed it. I hope to arrange more enrichment days in the future due to the success of the day.
St John's Primary School, Keele - Jan 2022
Each workshop was perfectly matched to the age of the children. They were all fully engaged and learnt so many different moves, sequences etc. We've not had a dance work shop like it before and all the children and staff were buzzing after it. They loved the experience and carried on dancing afterwards.
