Teachers

The staff at FirstSteps School of Dance are all Royal Academy of Dance qualified teachers and have received specialist training. Most of our teachers were professional dancers who worked both nationally and internationally.

FirstSteps has mentored many teachers over the years who go on to teach and, open schools of their own. Esperanza Carmona and Sarai Scott Neale have remained here at FirstSteps.
