ImageOur Team

  • All of our coaches are fully qualified

  • All of our coaches are insured

  • All of our coaches are CRB checked

  • All of our coaches are experienced

Always check your coach / instructor / teacher in any club you are part of is:

1. Qualified

Are they qualified to coach you? Ensure that anyone offering you tuition has a teaching certificate. This is especially important in dance where teaching experience and knowledge of what the body can and cannot do is essential.

2. Membership

Are they affiliated to a recognised association? Often teachers may have taken a qualification in the past but have allowed their membership to lapse. In these circumstances they may not have insurance and your safety could be at risk.

3. CRB Check

Has your coach been checked by the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB)? It is essential that coaches are CRB checked. This ensures the safety of your children.

4. Insurance

Is your club insured? Correct and full insurance is essential. This should never be underestimated. If an accident was to occur and your club is not insured or one of the teachers instructs an incorrect move and there is an accident then you may have to face the bill if the club is not insured.

With years of show experience (including The Royal Albert Hall and Sadlers Wells), Amy is an excellent all round teacher. In 2007 Amy travelled to Florida to become a certified Zumba instructor.

"I have loved getting to know the whole school better and helping all of our dancers to improve. I have played a big part in our Ashford branch and I have watched it go from strength to strength. I hope to be teaching for a long time - So watch this space!"

Following the birth of Amys daughter, Amy has returned to teaching. Amyís relaxed approach puts everyone at their ease. She has a fun, happy personality which all the children love.
