I took 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 in 1999  I started to develop a series of programmes that not only taught a child  dance, mime and movement, but at the same time, taught the child the required elements of the National Curriculum

Dancing With A Difference Ltd™ is the culmination of 20 years research, study and teachings  to get children to 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.
