Sophie

I started my dance training at Tanzen Academy, in Ardingly, from the age of 3 years old.  Here I began my climb up the dance examination ladder. I also enjoyed participating in many shows, festivals and competitions along the way.
Some years later, I moved to Stages Performing Arts Centre, in Crawley, where I continued working towards achieving my Ballet, Tap and Modern grades, up to advanced levels.
At the age of 19, I attended Chichester College to further my studies. I gained both a Diploma in Dance Instruction (Ballet, Tap and Modern) and a Diploma in Dance Education (Modern and Tap).
Being able to teach something that is a big part of my life is amazing. Experimenting with different styles of dance, through exciting choreography, is something I enjoy to do. I look forward to being able to pass my knowledge and experience on to students at Popsteps.
