Many of you will remember Netta from before she had her baby boy in December 2014. Netta is returning to teach on Thursdays from September. She went to full time dance and musical theatre school from a young age and danced professionally before completing her CBTS (The same course that Miss Elspeth is about to finish) and has taught ballet, contemporary and ISTD modern for many years now.

Teacher: Miss Hara - Tuesday: Intermediate and Advanced 1 ballet

Miss Hara is new to the school, though she came to teach a class last term so some of you may remember her. She is from Greece and studied in the Vaganova (Russian) style of ballet. She trained vocationally and went straight on to teaching. Since moving to England she has retrained in the RAD syllabus and style, which she has been teaching in Wales and England for a few years now. Hara has been teaching professionally for 10 years and I am very excited to see how her experience will help the dancers' technique and artistry flourish.
