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.
