Miss Lorraine


Miss Lorraine started her dance education with Debina School of Dance back in the 1980's, and from her very first class she knew that she would love dance for the rest of her life. She worked her way through various IDTA dance exams, shows, and performances and soon became an Assistant Dance Teacher for the school. Miss Lorraine continued her professional qualification with Sharona Stage School, and became a qualified IDTA Associate teacher.

Miss Lorraine has been teaching and preparing children for dance exams and shows for  over 25 years, and has run after school dance clubs, holiday workshops, and continues to teach dance in Private Nursery schools.

"I am very proud to be the Principal of such a lovely School, and am lucky to work with such fantastic teachers, staff, and dancers. Watching the students arrive to class with a smile, makes me very happy. Dance should be about enjoyment, and from enjoyment, grows confidence." I am very proud of all our dancers and their achievement's however big or small."
