I have received a number of queries recently about classes at different levels and times and on different days, and so here are some alternatives, with other experienced teachers and in other locations, including a new class for adult beginners. Read More

Looking forward to seeing you in class!




Delighted to be able to announce that Monday morning contemporary classes will be resuming at URC this coming term.  There continues to be a need for professional morning class in Oxford to sustain local dancers, both through practice and through access to other dance artists. So local dancer Rachel Gildea and I are jointly devising a programme under the heading Collective Contemporary Class – to provide regular professional level classes for experienced dancers in Oxford which artists can both attend, and also have the opportunity to teach, sharing their own practice.

CCC classes will run on Monday mornings 10.00-11.30am at the URC in Summertown. The programme will start on Monday September 15th with a series of four classes by John Darvell of nocturn dance. Hugely looking forward to experiencing John’s dynamic and enjoyable teaching – see below for further information. Read More

Alerting you to a revised and slightly later start date for autumn term ballet classes at URC.  There will now be no classes on Saturday 13th September.  The first classes of the term will be on Monday 15th September; and the first Saturday classes will now be on Saturday 20th September. Thursday advanced classes will resume on 18th September.
Apologies for this change.
See you soon!
