Early on Rachel knew she wanted to be a dance teacher and upon completing her A-Levels quickly moved on to taking her first set of teaching qualifications with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.
Rachel has taught at many schools running one off workshops and breakfast dance clubs as well as spending a number of years teaching at Wolfson College, part of the University of Cambridge.
Rachel now has built up over 10 years experience teaching both children and adults. Training pupils not only socially but for examinations and competitions, all with outstanding results. Rachel still continues to broaden her skills by taking higher qualifications and attending regular courses and workshops.
Within our group children's classes we like to actively encourage pupils to participate in regular examinations as we feel it helps give them a goal to work towards with their class work and offers them an amazing sense of achievement when they receive their examination certificate and award.
For those pupils who wish to push themselves further into dance we offer the chance to join our competition squad in disco freestyle and ballroom and latin. Competitions can give a great sense of pride and also helps teach the valuable skill of good sportsmanship. We have a fantastic competition squad with all parents and pupils encouraging and supporting each other, this all adds to a great atmosphere.
We see each and every pupil as an individual and recognise that everyone has a different ambition with what they want to achieve with their own dancing. Therefore pupils are given every opportunity to take their dancing where they wish whether that is just their weekly class, examinations or even into competitions.
At Aspire Dancesport it is important to us that we get to know each pupil as this allows us to help provide a more tailored dance journey so that pupils can feel at ease and gain the best out of their dancing.
It is our goal to encourage a passion for the art of dance in every pupil who attends Aspire Dancesport. Passion isn't limited to those who can do the most spins, passion is something that every pupil can accomplish no matter what their ability.
