Service description:

Gayna Brown established the School of Dance and Drama over 30 years ago and continues to teach pupils from the age of 2½ to adult in all disciplines from ballet, tap, modern, jazz and choreography. Over the years Gayna Brown has taught many dancers from complete novices who have been developed into professional dancers.
Former pupils have performed in West End musicals, joined professional ballet and contemporary companies or even continued into careers in teaching. Many pupils join as a means of keeping fit and healthy, improving posture, balance and co-ordination or even as a social experience.
Pupils are given the opportunity to further their experience through exams, shows, festivals and workshops as part of the school calendar. Pupils are trained for exams from pre-primary through to advanced. Pupils are encouraged to reach their potential with the enjoyment of dance being paramount. Gayna Brown is fully qualified with both R.A.D. (Royal Academy of Dance) and I.S.T.D. (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) Teachers Certificates. All visiting teachers are also fully qualified.
