Beverly Miller

Beverley Miller

Beverley has been participating in dance classes, performances and exams since she was seven years old and finds pleasure in passing on what she has learnt by assisting in classes.

Her favourite dance styles as a child were disco and acrobatics, however, due to the variety of subjects taught at this school, as she grew older, she began to develop a passion for ballet and pointe work .

Beverley feels that not only does dancing promote health and fitness but it can also help build confidence and develop close friendships
