Hi, I'm Katie.
I teach ballet inspired classes
& theatre jazz to adults
Encouraging you to move through life
with grace and strength
Do you want to be ballet or jazz dance inspired ?
Do you enjoy dancing?
I am a former professional dancer and I teach ballet inspired classes (and theatre jazz) to adults 30’s plus. I take the most accessible and beneficial exercises from ballet technique to create classes that enable students to discover how grace and strength can be achieved through dance.
No matter what size, ability, identity or talent, I warmly invite you to discover and embody your inner ballerina. Whether you are a complete beginner to ballet, danced as a child or an accomplished dancer; I tailor exercises to meet your level of experience. Current students frequently surprise themselves by what they achieve within a six or seven week term.
I provide an encouraging and enabling environment for any budding adult ballerina to learn new skills or expand upon current dance knowledge. Classes are small to enable every student to receive the attention they deserve and enable steady progress.
In addition, I teach adult jazz classes embracing the style of American theatre jazz. Think Gene Kelly, Liza Minelli, Fosse and Jerome Robins style choreography .
Classes available in studio’s in Hove, East Sussex.
My vision is to share my passion for dance.
I believe dance provides an ideal opportunity to connect mind and body, enabling people to return to a flow state and ground themselves in the present moment.
Dance, singing and creativity have always brought me tremendous fulfilment.
I danced professionally with the Northern Ballet Theatre and also performed in lead roles in West End musicals, National Tours and Fringe Theatre. Growing up I received a vocational education at the Arts Educational School and The Central School of Ballet.
Additionally I am a qualified Montessori Teacher and Child Counsellor. I have a fascination regarding barriers to learning, supporting emotional well-being and the mind, body connection.
