TEACHERS  

Teachers Matter! It is company policy to nurture and provide ongoing support for all teachers ensuring the very best for pupils. All our teachers are qualified and CRB/DBS checked. They continue to train and attend courses in their chosen genre to keep classes and ideas fresh. Our teachers goal is to bring fun energetic classes to the students at Elements Dance and Theatre Schools. At the same time learning discipline and a strong technique. Almost anything is possible, it's not that an individual "can't" do something but more that they may find it a "little tricky", positivity and encouragement are key to a happy and confident child. 
 
If you are a teacher looking for work in RAD Ballet or ISTD Modern/Tap, or if you are available to teach specialised workshops in any genre please 
send your CV to office@elements-dance.com. Elements are always looking at giving its members opportunities to sample new styles of dance and Musical Theatre to offer new experiences and explore dance.

ISTD Modern and Tap Teacher Danielle Morrison  
Danielle is originally from Scotland, where her passion for dancing began when she was just three years of age. Since then her love for the art has continued to grow and has expand to many genres. As she began to progress throughout the years, she was inspired to dance professionally. 
At the age of 16, Danielle improved her knowledge and skillset by attending the Deborah Capon Dance College in London for three and a half years (now known as Dance College Whitstable). Her studies enabled her to gain a "Dance Diploma in Education" (DDE) in ISTD Ballet, Tap and Modern. She was taught by some of the ISTD's top teachers, who helped her to also achieve "Advanced 2" in all three genres. 
Since graduating, she has taught dance to pupils of all ages, spanning from 3 to 80 olds - this experience has allowed her to encourage students, boosting their confidence, whilst at the same time fine tuning their technique, and most importantly, enrich their love for dancing as a whole. In addition to this, she has performed at a variety of venues, which include dancing on the "Marella" cruise ship and partaking in a "Michael Buble" tribute act.

Ashleigh has just graduated from the University of Chichester with a BA Hons Degree in Musical Theatre. She has been training in musical theatre from the age of 5 and has attended local theatre schools including Elements.
