Miss Lizzie

Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz

  Hi, I'm Lizzie. I've danced all of my life. First as a child and then fullfilling my dream of dancing professionally. I trained at Laine Theatre Arts, one of the UK's leading theatre schools and after graduating I worked as a performer for several years. My years on stage took me around the world, performing as a very good friend of many Disney Princesses for Disney Cruise Line (where I was also the Dance Captain). I worked for Costa Cruises, QDos Pantomimes and even appeared in a national TV commercial. I always wanted to teach and in 2006 I started my own classes under the name Project Dance. I have over 14 years teaching experience from beginners to advanced. I hold a Diploma in Dance Education in Ballet, Tap and Modern Theatre (DDE) with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). Dance has been a huge part of my life and I don't know who I'd be without it. I hope I can inspire others with this unique art form, which not only trains technique but skills for life.

Miss Jade

Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz

Hi, I'm Jade. I have had a passion for dancing for as long as I can remember! Taking weekly classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern & Jazz I worked towards taking ISTD Examinations and regularly performing in shows. My ambition was always to become a dance teacher. I successfully auditioned for the 'Professional Dancers and Teachers of Dance' course at Preston College where I continued my training and gained my Diploma in Dance Education (DDE) in Tap and Modern. Later, I achieved my Ballet qualification at North Liverpool Dance Academy. 
This September marks 7 wonderful years teaching at Project Dance. During this time I have also taught at two other dance schools and eventually opened my own school in September 19. Watching my students progress, improve and share the same love of dance that I do is super rewarding and I feel very lucky to have a job that I love.
