About
Having been trained as a dancer and then a dance teacher by Shimmi Shake since the age of 10, I have a real passion for dance and strive to share this with the children that I teach. I have run my own franchise of Shimmi Shake for the past 6 years, teaching successful classes in several Primary Schools and private locations around the Bromley and Croydon Boroughs. I’m extremely proud of the dance school that we have, and of the children that attend our classes. Their enjoyment and achievements make my job a very rewarding one.
I hope to welcome you to our classes soon.
