I opened Miss Jolene's School of Dance in 2010.
Dance was always my passion. Here is a little background....
I first began my dancing journey when I was a young girl as my lovely Gran used to go to Tap Dance Classes. I absolutely loved my first class of Ballet and Tap class...and thank my Gran Norma for inspiring me!
I danced at local dance schools until the age of 16 first at Miss Luke's in Nantwich and then with Jacqui at X - Academy. I performed in many shows at The Nantwich Civic, South Cheshire College and The Crewe Lyceum Theatre.
At 15 I danced with The English Youth Ballet in their production of The Nutcracker.
When I was 16, I made the decision that I would like to take further training in dance and off I went to Liverpool. I trained at North Liverpool Dance Academy with Miss Conroy Jones where I gained my ISTD teaching qualifications and professional examinations.
Through my career as a dancer/dance teacher I have had the opportunity to perform in many beautiful and prestigious venues, including The Liverpool Empire, The Crewe Lyceum, Southport Theatre, Disney Land, The Royal Northern College of Music and Sadlers Wells.
When I completed my training I worked at local dance schools, choreographing for shows and entering children for their dance examinations. I gained much valuable experience in these roles which is when I decided I would like to try opening my own 'ballet class'. After much hard work, determination and commitment that 'ballet class' is now a successful dance school offering dance classes to over 250 pupils, 6 days a week. I feel very lucky to do a job that I love!
As well as being 'Miss Jolene', I am also 'Mummy' to 2 young boys. Miss Jolene's is a family run business, you will be sure to see my little boys and husband down at the dance school too, they are the best help and great support!
Miss Jolene's has a fantastic faculty of staff: dance teachers, a singing teacher, a drama teacher and dance assistants! My team work extremely hard to deliver professional, educational, fun and enjoyable lessons. (Please check back to the site soon, where you will be able to meet the team!)
My aim and the main purpose of Miss Jolene's is to encourage people to dance; all ages! all abilities! and I hope you would like to join me and my awesome team soon!
