Beccy started her dance training with her mother at this school and went on to train at the Royal Academy of Dance and The Centre Performing Arts College. She now has over twenty years’ experience as a teacher and choreographer at various schools in and around London.
Many of Beccy’s former pupils are now professional dancers either on tour, in the West End or abroad in shows such as Cats, War Horse, Grease, Jersey Boys, Les Miserable. Others have toured with dance companies such as the Richard Alston Company.
Beccy’s true passion is not only to train dancers, but to also create a love of music and dance in all her pupils. She wants to introduce youngsters to the pleasures of dance and encourage the many skills it can bring; creativity, self-expression, teamwork and commitment.
‘My aim is to create an environment where teenagers and young people have the confidence and motivation to really explore the art form allowing them to build on their emotional and physical strength. I really want to encourage them to find the inspiration to take ownership of their progress and enhance their training on an individual level. These are really important life skills regardless of the professional path they take beyond their school years.'
Beccy is enjoying her new role as Principal; 'I have learnt so much from my Mum over the years. Initially as a young dancer myself but soon I began to learn the skills necessary to be a good teacher. She has taught me how to value each child as an individual and to nurture their natural ability and enthusiasm. She has also shown me how a personable approach is effective in running a school; listening to everyone’s needs, be it students or parents. I hope to embody her expertise and continue the wonderful ethos that she has developed at the school.'
