Dance Network & how the dance school began
Founded in 2000 by Miss Michelle Shuttleworth (Principle, AISTD) the school started life as a small local school offering Ballet Modern and Jazz classes at Measham Leisure centre.
Over the next two years the school began to grow and Miss Michelle began to offer classes at other venues throughout Leicestershire and Derbyshire. It was in 2002 that Miss Leanne O’Brien (AISTD) a former colleague of Miss Michelle’s joined the staff in order to accommodate the 200+ students that the school had gained in two years.
The school continued to grow successfully, having put on two shows and numerous successful examination sessions in which students achieved excellent results. 15 years later the school now offers tuition to over 400 students over six days a week at 5 locations in Leicestershire and Derbyshire with 7 teachers and Dance Network is ever growing!!!
