I had my first dance lesson when I was 2½ years old, ever since then dance has been my passion.
I then opened my first dancing school in 1981 and since then I have taught thousands of children, and it’s been my privilege and pleasure to see them blossom into confident, fit and healthy young adults. I believe that all children (mainstream and special needs) should have the chance to develop to their full potential regardless of class or ability.
But I always thought that there must be more you could do with dancing and so I started to develop a series of programmes that not only taught a child the basics of dance and movement, but at the same time, taught the child the required elements of the The Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.
Dancing With A Difference Ltd™ is the culmination of 12 years research and work and lets children learn through music, movement and mime.
I really hope you enjoy teaching Dancing With A Difference Ltd™!

After having my first dance lesson at 3 years old I found a real passion for dance and the theatre.
As the years went on my love of teaching grew and I am a very proud co-owner of a successful dance school on the Isle of Wight.
Through teaching and getting to know children you know that all children are different and have difficulties and learn in a different way. Being a mum of 2 young children it is amazing to see how Dancing with a Difference has helped in their development. I really am proud to be a part of this wonderful dance programme and really hope you all love it as much as I do.
