Jade started performing from the age of 5, working through her dancing grades in ISTD Modern and Tap and RAD Ballet. Also in Singing and Music by taking exams through ABRSM. Jade was lucky enough to gain a 3 Year scholarship to Italia Conti, Barbican, London. During her time there she gained her BADC certificate in Stage Fighting.

Student teacher (DDE in training) - Laura Givens
Laura is originally from Coventry where as a child, she performed until she went off to study at Liverpool University. Once her studies were over, she returned to classes where she completed her majors in tap in just over a year.
She has been assisting Jade, learning the syllabus and is currently working towards entering her first students for examinations.
Laura is currently teaching all Tap classes this term as Jade had some unexpected surgery. The feedback I have received regarding Laura's teaching (and being thrown in at the deep end) has been outstanding and everyone has enjoyed her hard work, ethuasism and professionalism.
