When I left school I went to train at the Lillian McNeil School of Dancing in Glasgow. It was a three year course in ballet (mainly) but we also did tap and modern dance. During my three years I obtained the following:-

  • Elementary in the Royal Academy of Dance
  • Intermediate in the Royal Academy of Dance and passed the exam with a commended mark
  • Associate in the Scottish Dance Teachers Alliance in Stage
  • Associate with the BATD in Stage
  • Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing Associate

On completion of my time training with Jillian McNeil I continued to update my qualifications all of which were gained through the British Association of Dance Teachers (BATD) in the areas and levels of:-

  • Stage (Member)
  • Modern Dance (Associate)
  • Modern Dance (Member)
  • Ballet (Associate)
  • Highland (Associate)

I was recently awarded a Life Membership with the BATD in recognition of my services to dance.

I have always had a passion for dance especially the field of Ballet and because of this I and my school are committed to ensuring that dance is taught properly. Following a curriculum with a widely recognised association and ensuring that my qualifications are up to date guarantees this commitment and ensures that pupils are able to progress.
