Gillian has been a qualified dance teacher for over 16 years
specialising in Tap dance and Modern dance. Before
dancing, Gillian was a qualified Nursery Nurse. This gives her a
wealth of experience in dealing with children of all ages.
The dance school has become a small community where the children
and parents meet and socialise with each other.
We offer the students the opportunity to take part in B.A.T.D.
examinations each year. We also showcase the talents of all in
our annual dance show. This is staged in a theatre to give parents
the rare opportunity to see their children perform on stage.
We have just celebrated the 10th anniversary of our class in
Crumlin. We still have some of the original girls who were with
us on our first day. We have watched them all grow into lovely
young ladies. Some of them now are embarking on their
university education away from Northern Ireland and we wish
those girls the very best.
We have also completed our 3rd year of performances at the
prestigious West End Stage School in London. Our students have
had the opportunity work with some of the best industry
professionals. Due to the success of this project, we look
forward to taking students back each year.
