The principal Lauren Blanchard trained locally at the Wendy Foster Theatre School and then at the
prestigious Performers College London in Dance and Musical Theatre. Lauren is a qualified ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) dance teacher and students will be able to take examinations in different dance genres with the ISTD.
Since graduating Lauren has undertaken a number of professional Musical Theatre roles and taught at a number of dance schools around the country, she has choreographed numerous musical theatre pieces and festival competition work. Lauren has performed in the summer season show for Tony Peers Productions at the Scarborough Spa for the last three years and has been the lead female role in the Scunthorpe Pantomime alongside Annie Fanny for the last two years.
More recently Lauren’s has organised dance workshops that have given local dancers the opportunity to dance with West End and Holly Wood star Adam Garcia and dancers from the West Ends 42nd Street. She has numerous professional contacts within the theatre industry and will continue to offer workshops throughout the year.

Lauren said ‘It has been my ambition to open a dance school, since a young age and although I hope to continue some professional work I now want to focus on giving local youngsters the same opportunities that she had. I have been fortunate to have worked with some lovely dance teachers who have encouraged me to further my dance training and I feel that now I have the skills necessary to run my own school’.
