Tasha has sadly had to step down from teaching the Street Dance and Cheerleading classes due to her recent car accident. She is recovering well but is suffering with whiplash. As Tasha is also pregnant she has decided to take this opportunity to finish early to recover fully and enjoy her pregnancy. We wish Tasha all the best and look forward to her return after the birth of her baby.
Starting after half term, Street Dance and Cheerleading classes in Ridgewell and Clare will be taught by our new teacher Sophie Hughes. Sophie is an experienced dancer and dance teacher, having trained at the Royal Ballet and Millennium Dance. Sophie is a qualified IDTA dance teacher and Cheerleading Coach Level 3 with the UKCA.
