I have a wealth of experience teaching children ballet from nursery school age (from as young as 6 months) to secondary school age. From 2006 I was employed by the Vacani Ballet School in central London, teaching classes in Notting Hill and Marylebone. The Vacani schools follow the ISTD Cecchetti Syllabus and I was delighted to hold a 100% pass rate at their school ballet examinations. I have been the Principal of Tiny Tutus since 2008, teaching in play centres, pre schools and nurseries in Fulham, Wimbledon, Esher, Tonbridge and Hildenborough. I established Tiny Tutus with the specific intention to teach very young children the foundations of classical ballet in a fun, friendly and structured environment.
I am a qualified ISTD ballet teacher, achieving teacher status in 2007. I trained at the Royal Ballet School as a Junior Associate for three years and subsequently as a boarder at the Royal Ballet Junior school, White Lodge, in Richmond Park. I was also a Cecchetti Scholar and awarded a place with London Junior Ballet. I currently live near Sevenoaks with my husband and two little girls.
