I have just completed my Diploma in Dance Teaching Studies through the Royal Academy of Dance. I am currently teaching at Dance Central in Taupo as well as Taupo-nui-a-Tia College. I loved the PBT workshop in Melbourne in January 2017. I have since taught some of the exercises from this workshop in my dance classes and have seen development in ballet technique and strength in all of my dancers.
Dance Central, Taupo. We teach RAD ballet, AJDA Jazz and NZAMD Contemporary. W have incorporated PBT in most of our ballet and some Contemporary classes.
Kerry started her dancing journey at the age of four, she began with ballet and later added jazz, tap and drama to her repertoire.
