Dance Teachers

Laura Adams and Carly Kane

From the age of two, Carly and Laura found their passion for dance after attending their local dance school. Over the next twenty years, they studied a variety of subjects including acrobatics, ballet, modern and tap. Alongside this they have gained qualifications from the British Theatre Dance Association and a National Diploma in Performing Arts discovering numerous new styles including: contemporary, contact improvisation and physical theatre.

Laura and Carly have collaborated in choreography classes, technique workshops, performances and competitions, stemming their passions for opening their own dance company. Contact us here.
