Teachers

 

The foundations for a fun and varied dance studio started in February 2008, within the first three years of trading the numbers increased and quickly grew.  Today Dancefit is thriving with 310 pupils, two annual concerts, a talented team of teachers, and two elite competition groups representing our region in National Awards.  We are blessed with the  most supportive and encouraging families and friends and we are excited to see where the next 10 years will take us as we watch our students flourish and grow!
