I have been dancing since the age of three, and studied with Monica Bannister in Loughborough and Cissie Smith in Nottingham. I also was the founder member of the Leicestershire County School of Dance under Peter Kyle, before continuing later at Northern Ballet School. I started Pilbeam Academy of Dance in 1990 and been teaching ballet at OLCS in Loughborough for 30 years.
Rebecca Gregory has danced with Pilbeam academy since the age of four. Rebecca passed her first major exams in ballet and tap last summer with top marks and is hoping to take further majors in theatre and national very soon. Rebecca helps with the junior classes on Wednesday.
