Lisa has been teaching dance locally for  years. Whilst her passion is ballet, she has also taught all other genres. Lisa is a member of British Ballet Organisation, has done her teaching qualifications through BBO and believes that the syllabus offers everything a young dancer needs to succeed. She is an examiner for BBO and adjudicates at competitions and exams countrywide.

Along with husband Dave they own a production company and have been involved in local Musical Theatre for many years.

Lisa and Dave’s two children, Luke and Georgia, danced from birth and Lisa is excited that Georgia is on her teaching team to pass on her extensive knowledge to our dancers.

All ballet classes are taught by our Principal Lisa Wilson.
