A fantastic Franchise Orchard opportunity awaits you.
I started the same as most little girls that end up being Dancers or Performers with Ballet at the age of 3 years old and later adding Modern and Tap. By the time I was eight I also started Drama. I lived and breathed Dance and Drama and loved to Perform.
At 16years I studied Performing arts and L.A.M.D.A’s London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts at College. By the time I left college age 19years I started the same week touring with Murder Mystery Southern Performing Nationwide and continued to study L.A.M.D.A Acting and L.A.M.D.A Verse and Prose both to Honours. I also took up singing. 18 months later I was Qualified as a L.A.M.D.A teacher, I had a few agents and started Acting and dancing in Films Nationwide but mainly at Pinewood Studios London.
I spent the next 8 years getting on the 4.40am train out of Fratton Portsmouth to get to Waterloo station where the cleaners would nudge me to wake me up. Down into the under ground and off to Pinewood or on Location. To the most surreal magical world. Where every time I met someone they and their surroundings had completely changed. One week we would be in a Period drama like “Four Feathers” wearing all that that entails and the next week we would see each other again on board a ship dancing the Tarantella in Terra Nostra (Brazilian T.V Series) dressed as starving stowaways in rags. Or bumping into each other on the set of a Fantasy Film Harry Potter or Dinotopia. There was a lot of tentative conversations “Hi how are you? “How have you been” Whilst I desperately tried to work out where I knew them from. One of these times I spotted a lady I knew but as normal couldn’t place. So I started my usual “Hi how are you” Patter whilst trying to work it out. She was very friendly and we ended up discussing the stewed tea on set. Then someone from behind her said she was due on set and that was the end of that, she was off. It wasn’t until after she left another actor said to me you do realise who that was don’t you? That was Dame Judy Dench!
I then left my industry 8 years later because I met a man who I was going to settle down with so I started in Sales and started training in Latin American Jive.
After a car crash leaving me unable to drive I decided it was time for my next career change.
I saw an advert in the paper from Curves Gym asking for a gym instructor. So thought I’d call them up. I explained on the answerphone message I was not a gym Instructor but I am a dancer would they be interested? I worked at Curves gym for the next year teaching dance. And trained as a teacher.
A Salsa friend of mine wanted to open his own salsa school but he didn’t know how and asked if I could help him. 3 years later I now had 14 different styles of dance under my belt and co owned 4 salsa schools and a Cuban Club. This is where I started to pick up my Dance teaching style and business skills and where my previous Sales and event Management experience started coming in handy.
… and how Dancin’ Fit was born!
