Here are my Qualifications
I believe being highly skilled, experienced and qualified is vital in this industry. There are many people offering classes but how do you know who to trust? Always look for their qualifications
Check that the teacher holds a professional dance or fitness qualification because, without these, it is impossible to gain insurance in case of an injury or accident (and it's more likely to happen if your teacher is not qualified).
There are many dance classes around at the moment that are being taught by people after just a few hours of training- these are just licences rather than qualifications and there is a huge difference. If in doubt just ask.
Here's a selection of my qualifications to date. I am constantly adding new certificates and training as I- literally- move with the times!
