St Mary's School of Dance: pre-school and RAD Ballet
Marian Goodall B.Phil (Hons) LRAD AISTD AIDTA
RAD Registered Teacher and Life Member
I learnt ballet as a child in Oxford at the Tetlow Hulme Ballet Studio. As ‘Head Student’ I often helped out with teaching the younger children, which is where my love of teaching began, and after dancing professionally for a short time, I trained as a teacher at the College of the Royal Academy of Dance.
Here I gained my Teaching Diploma and Licentiate, and my degree from the University of Durham. I also hold Associate membership of the ISDT in National Dance, and Associate membership of the IDTA. I regularly attend courses on Early Dance and like to explore other subjects or dance styles which may complement the children’s learning.
I founded St Mary’s School of Dance in 1986.
