Anna teaches our littler ones here at Nicholson School of Dance.

Classes start from age 2- Parents stay and play, Pre-school Pre-Ballet, Reception Pre-Ballet and Ks1 (ages 5-7) Ballet.

These classes are well structured with the younger ones learning the foundations of Ballet. These classes spark the imagination to develop social skills, co-ordination and of course have fun in these classes. 

The older group (5-7) is more focused on preparing students for structured learning in their classes, we do Barre work every week and of course have a good helping of fun, with creative dance and games at the end of the session.

A former pupil of Annette’s, Anna completed her professional dance training in 2014 at The Northern School of Contemporary Dance with a 2:1 BPA HONS in Contemporary Dance. Here she studied a wide variety of styles including Ballet, Cunningham and Graham techniques.

While she studied here she found a love for yoga, and has been practicing for 5 years. Since graduating Anna has been working as a freelance dance artist and teacher, working with choreographers such as Gerry Turvey, and Birmingham Dance Network as well as creating performance work in collaboration with ReCollective.  She has completed a training course to teach yoga to children and uses this as an element within her classes.

In the future, Anna is hoping to pursue her love of yoga and mindful movement by completing a Yoga teacher training course in order to be able to teach adult classes.
