I was head of the Dance department at West heath Independent School for Girls (where Lady Diana was famously a pupil). Teaching ballet, tap, modern and jazz and directing school performances and end of term displays.
I taught jazz for Associates dance school and prepared many teenage dancers for college auditions to take their training further. I taught Drama workshops at Hilden Oaks Preparatory school introducing children as young as 4 to the wonderful world of improvisation and staging regular productions throughout the academic year. I was a regular drama teacher at Italia Conti Tunbridge Wells coaching students for LAMDA exams and rehearsing monologues for their drama school auditions.
I started ACT Associates Children’s Theatre for ages 4 – 15yrs facilitating weekly acting workshops encouraging kids and teenagers to enjoy pretend play as an antidote to the academic school lives they’d come from. I produced and directed stage productions of The Gruffalo, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations and The Snow Queen.
