Before relocating to Somerset in 2016, Catherine ran a highly successful Berkshire based dance & performing arts school under the name Dance Arts Academy, and with the help of her teaching team, provided professional dance training to over 200 pupils each week. Catherine found her passion for dance at the tender age of 3 with the inspiring Jill Morgan School of Dancing in Wokingham, and pursued her training in Classical Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Modern until she reached 18. Her study of dance continued at University, and following several years developing her skills as an Assistant Teacher, Catherine completed her Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance 'Diploma in Dance Instruction' in Tap and Modern Dance, with the highly regarded Linda Sweetzer Teacher Training College. As part of her quest for continuous professional development, she has recently become a certified Acrobatic Arts Instructor, and undergone specific training with the ISTD with regard to teaching dance in primary schools.
Catherine has spent the last 16 years sharing her love of dance with the next generation, visiting pre-schools and nurseries, teaching and choreographing for a number of prestigious dance schools and performance groups, preparing hundreds of students for their ISTD exams, and entertaining countless children at birthday parties!
Catherine and her young family are very pleased to have found their new home in beautiful Somerset, and she looks forward to the next chapter of her career..
