Chloe Parsons (Ba Hons Ballet Education / RAD RTS)
I began dancing at the early age of 3 years old at The Ranger School of Dance in Swanage. I studied in many discplines of dance, including classical Ballet up to Advanced 2 level (R.A.D). I gained a lot of experience at this school, from shows and performing experiences to choreography and teaching experiences at a young age.
Gaining all this experience allowed me to go on and train professionally as a Dance Teacher at The Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D) in London, gaining my degree; BA (Hons) in Ballet Education.
I have been teaching dance since 2005, starting in London working for many different dance and ballet schools. I then moved back to Dorset and started working full time in local dance and ballet schools aswell as private educational and boarding schools in the area.
I have come to a point in my life where I would like to open a school in Wareham, to be able to give young children and adults, the chance to enjoy and learn dance in their local area. I feel that everyone has the ability to learn dance no matter what their age and I am happy to be able to bring this to Wareham and the surrounding areas.
