My love of dance started at an early age where I trained at a dance school in the South of England in Ballet, Ballroom, Latin and Disco and went on to compete across the country. I gained my teaching qualification with the IDTA passing with Honours and I have continued my knowledge within the dance and fitness industry with qualifications in Fitness Pilates, Ballet Barre, UKCA British Cheerleading and Zumba . Whilst on maternity leave to have my daughter, I started work on creating the concept of Passion2Dance. It was important to create a stylish and luxurious dance studio and being a mum to provide excellent facilities for families. I wanted the studios to be a friendly place where everyone feels comfortable and children can have fun, in a fantastic venue with great classes taught by professional teachers.
Alison works as the studio manager and ensures the smooth running of the dance school. As a busy dance school there is lots to do from arranging classes, dealing with parents managing the shop and stock.
