Alison Dando

Ali ballet
Principal

Alison started dancing when she was 5 years old and has loved it ever since! She has performed in many shows and performances and was thrilled when she was accepted into Bojangles Dance College to train professionally at 17 years old. During her 4 years professional training Alison gained her Advanced 2 ISTD qualifications as a dancer and qualified with Associate Teaching Status in Ballet in 2003. This was then quickly followed with Tap and Modern teaching qualifications. Alison was privileged to gain teaching experience in various schools in the Midlands working with fantastic and inspiring teachers. Alison then enjoyed teaching at a dance school in Cyprus before returning to the Cambridgeshire area. Alison is passionate about performing arts and strives to offer fun classes which allow children to build their confidence and enjoy dancing.
