Miss Rhian teaches Musical Theatre at Shrewsbury United Reformed Church on a Tuesday evening as well as Private Singing Lessons.
Rhian began dancing when she was 5 years old after a school teacher told her mum that Rhian would not stop moving and tapping the table in class. Rhian trained in Ballroom and American Latin along with Freestyle and competed in a number of competitions all over the UK.

Throughout her teen years she continued to dance and started teaching but also found a love for singing. After performing in a number of school shows, Rhian trained in Musical Theatre at college and gained a BA(Hons) degree from Buckinghamshire New University. Since graduating, Rhian has performed all over the world and loved her role as kids entertainer and entertainments manager.

When Rhian moved back to her home town of Shrewsbury, she began to teach and has now been teaching for 6 years. It turns out... this is her dream job and being able to help each student reach their full potential is so rewarding.
