Natalie trained locally in the area since the age of 3, taking up Ballet, Tap and Modern with the ISTD. Her very first performances included productions in the West End and with the English Youth Ballet, whilst also taking exams in all three disciplines. Natalie then went onto study A-Level Dance, before attending Margaret Howard Theatre College to study dance and teacher training full-time. During her training here, she performed in local theatre productions, and on board an MSC Cruise Ship. Natalie developed a passion for teaching others at a young age whilst assisting in classes, and then taking on her own classes at the age of 18.
Since starting dance, Natalie has had a determination to set up her own school. The school aims to nurture, develop and allow children to grow into strong, able, skilled dancers, whilst having fun in relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
The school is registered with the ISTD, Acrobatic Arts, and all teachers are fully qualified and DBS checked, with regular First Aid training.

She has performed locally with amateur dramatics societies in Marlow singing dancing and acting and is looking forward to sharing her enthusiasm for performing with her students!
