Miss Holly teaches Freestyle and Lyrical Jazz on a Tuesday at Shrewsbury United Reformed Church.
Miss Holly started dancing at the age of 3 and by age 5 she had 8 solo dances and competed in many dance festivals, championships and scholarships around the country. She performed in a summer show and pantomime every year as well as taking graded examinations in RAD, ISTD and UKA. "My love of all aspects of dancing and performing grew and I always knew it would be a part of my life forever."
 
Miss Holly trained in Musical Theatre at Phil Winstons Theatreworks in Blackpool whilst also teaching twice a week in Telford. After her first term she auditioned and got the job to work overseas as a lead vocalist for TED in Tui Holiday Villages and spent 3 seasons in Lanzarote, Egypt and Tenerife. When she returned to the UK she jumped straight back into teaching and couldn’t wait to share everything she had learned about the industry and dance along the way to students who had the same passions.
Miss Holly still performs professionally and runs her own company called "Once Upon a Party".
