There is always a lot going on at D.F.F. Dance, and everybody can be involved.
It is important that our pupils are not just the best dancers they can be, but to be the best versions of themselves that they can be. Alongside becoming great dancers I also want them to develop confidence, focus, determination and creativity while developing great relationships with class mates.
At DFF we aim to encourage a love of dance and performance. We blend the syllabus of the Association of American Dance with lots of free work so that dancers make excellent progress, develop coordination, technique, strength and flexibility whilst still experience the joy of movement.
Our bi-annual show is held at The Windmill Theatre Littlehampton. Pupils have danced at Disneyland Paris, Her Majesty’s Theatre London, Buxton Opera House, The Connaught Worthing with the English Youth Ballet, in Panto at The Pavilion Theatre Worthing, The Capitol Horsham and Bexhill and at The Hawth Crawley in a Chance to Dance.
Students are prepared for examinations in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Acro. Discipline is high on the list of priorities, but so is happiness. However the most important thing is to foster and develop the love of dance and to enjoy dancing.
I believe that all children are individual and here at DFF we pride ourselves in encouraging a hard working environment but also a loving, caring and fun atmosphere. All the children are important to me whether they attend one session or more each week. I like to have a fun element towards the dance classes, but also to work towards excellent marks in examinations and top quality performances. All abilities are catered for whether dancing as a hobby, to keep fit or to do something more serious. Many pupils have continued to prestigious London dance colleges and into a career in dance/performance.
I want to pass on my lifelong love of dance and to inspire others.
