Carol’s dancing career began at a very tender age of 3, then at the Linda Sweetzer School where she had her first taste of assisting teaching, before training at London College of Dance under the expert tuition of Hilary Clark, Victoria Chappell & Tereza Theodoulou, she was able to study all forms of dance including RAD ballet; modern; tap; jazz; national; and contemporary. After graduating, Carol began her teaching career before taking over as Principal of Danceforce in 1996 when her first child was just 6 months old, and since then the school and her family have doubled in size! 2016/17 marked Carol’s 20th Anniversary as Principal, where we celebrated the success of the school as well as the support of our staff, students and parents at our Little Movers Display in July.
Carol’s passion for teaching is still as strong as ever, and as Danceforce continues to rise from strength to strength she is so proud of how the Danceforce Team continues to strive for every student to reach their potential.
