I went to Charlotte because at the age of 38 I wanted to continue playing competative rugby. She helped me with general fitness and also sport specific training. I would recommend Charlotte as a Personal Trainer as she understood my motivation and goals, and helped me work towards them.

ISTD Modern & Jazz
Through specially designed exercises, the ISTD Modern and Jazz Syllabus works to enhance your body’s muscular awareness and capabilities to contribute to a larger dance routine.
Exercises focus on core stability, flexibility, strength and power in movements such as leaps, turns, traveling steps, high kicks and isolations, which combine to create a rhythmic style of dance.
NATD Disco & Freestyle
This is a popular style of dance for younger children. Starting from the release of the film, Saturday Night Fever in 1977, ‘Disco Dancing’ took off as it gave young people an opportunity to dance without a partner, and to modern music.
This has developed over the years with teachers encouraging poise and performance within routines. Along with learning routines, students are also encouraged to create their own choreography expressing themselves in Freestyle Dance.
Regular ballet students are invited to start Pointe Work once their strength and technique is seen to be of the standard, and students are of the minimum age of 12.
This is due to bone development; anything earlier may cause issues however it is the teachers discretion to choose when a student may start Pointe Work
Tap dancing is an expressive form of dance that focuses on style and rhythm, created by the sound of the tap shoes.
It is a dance genre that many students find fun and challenging, and it is great for improving coordination and timing. Following the ISTD syllabus, students will learn individual exercises which lead to a larger dance piece. Once ready, students will be offered the opportunity to take an exam.
These classes are largely focused on show pieces, creating a routine with many performers of varying ages, working together and dancing to a well-known number; Usually something from the West End or movies.
These routines are very popular and the students love having the opportunity to perform on stage! This style is taught mainly in CAP after school clubs, however check the timetable for extras.
