The Dance Academy
Miss Jane began dancing at the age of three at Cardwell Theatre School in Altrincham, Cheshire. At 16, she moved to London to continue her training at Performers College under the direction of Brian Rogers, where she gained a Level 4 diploma in musical theatre and teaching qualifications in both modern and tap.
After completing the three year course, Miss Jane went on to work abroad, singing and dancing at Disneyland Paris, as well as in Corfu, Minorca, Cyprus and Spain. On her return to England, she took up a teaching post at Cardwell Theatre School where she gained further teaching qualifications in ballet.
In January 2007, Miss Jane relocated to Corby Glen and formed The Dance Academy, before moving to a premises in nearby Swinstead. Miss Jane teaches all subjects within the school, as well as choreographing for festivals.
