SCHOOL PRINCIPAL

CHANTELLE POOLE

I graduated from the Royal Academy of Dance, Professional Dancers' Teaching Diploma with Distinction in 2015.

 

Born in Devon, I started my training locally before attending the Senior Associates programme at the Royal Ballet School. I continued my training at Elmhurst School for Dance where I was lucky enough to perform with Birmingham Royal Ballet.

 

After graduating I worked as a freelance dancer appearing in television, film and on-stage alongside artists as diverse as Leona Lewis for the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert and Darcy Bussell in the Olympic Closing Ceremony. My television credits include the 'X- Factor' and 'The Other Woman' alongside Rupert Everett. I hsve also been featured in many dance catalogues and photographic advertisements including shoots for 'RED' magazine and 'Move Dancewear'. I subsequently worked with Belinda King on- board Cunard's Queen Elizabeth ship, performing a variety of different styles including Ballet, Ballroom, Latin, Jazz, Contemporary and Tap. My most recent contract was performing with English National Ballet in 'Swan Lake' at the Royal Albert Hall.

 

I now lead children and adult classes throughout Kent. Dancers have the opportunity to work towards local shows, festivals and be entered into exams with the prestigious Royal Academy of Dance.

My aim is to inspire dancers to be the best they can be through fun, professional training. I have such a love for dance and music and can't wait to share it!
