En Pointe Dance Studio







I started belly dance classes over 10 years ago and kept one going to classes when my teacher started teaching ATS.  It wasn’t a style I knew, I just wanted to keep on dancing.  I really enjoyed the dance, the increased togetherness it created in my eyes, the improvisation in it, as I struggled to remember choreography, and the costuming which I felt much more comfortable in. When some years later I moved and there was no ATS class in my new town several people suggested I teach.  I was rather uncertain but the opportunity to do so landed on my lap so I followed the Universe and went with the flow…  This was around the time that registration for General Skills and Teacher Training in Essex was coming up.  So off I went…  I completed GS and TT in June 2014 and became a Sister Studio the same year.  I’ve moved twice since.  I am now settled and finally have a lovely class running in York.  I also teach regular workshops in Guiseley.
