Since graduating from the Urdang academy with a national diploma in professional dance, I have featured in the industry as a professional dancer, teacher and choreograher.
Obtaining my teachers training qualification at The Dance College, has provided me with robust foundations of teaching syllabus work and the fundamentals of strong technique in dance.
Having taught at numerous dance schools over the years I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of students all with different capabilities, talents and styles. Through this I am able to appreciate individuality and how important it is to express originality through ones dance identity.
My travels and industry experience have helped me forge a pathway into choreography. Inspired by the various students I have worked with, I have been able to create some successful choreography which has been recognised and credited.
It is most rewarding being able to channel my experiences and knowledge through the students I have taught and choreographed for, and having the opportunity to watch them perform and achieve.
At Step by Steph’s I am offering a variety of classes including the syllabus for the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), where accredited exams can be taken in the disciplines of ballet, modern, and tap. I am also offering classes in jazz, and contemporary which will allow the children to gain strengths in these popular styles of dance and to encourage a freedom and creativity alongside graded work, or as an alternative.
The students will be working in an environment that is welcoming, safe, fun, and allows them to grow into the performers they wish to be.
As a dancer I understand the importance of self- belief, and confidence, and how this should be nurtured and encouraged within class work in order for children to gain their fullest potential.
Classes are available from 3 years to adults, and are suitable from beginners standard to those who are looking to one day have a future in the dance industry.
All of the students at Step by Steph’s will be offered the opportunity to perform in a bi annual show. This gives the students the chance to experience performing with an audience, and strengthening the skills required for this.
