Nicola Ivinson School of Dance
About the School
** Classes are for children aged 3 years and above. **
The main aim of the dance school is to give children the opportunity to learn various dance styles while having fun and meeting new friends.
Lessons are well structured and lead to children being able to take examinations (if desired) under the IDTA and NCDTA.
The dance school holds annual Christmas Shows where all children are invited to perform.
The school has also performed at various local events including Brampton’s Royal Wedding Street Party, The Stepping Stones Festival, Hayton Summer Fayre, Brampton Summer Fayre and The Watson Institute, Castle Carrock.
Nicola has also introduced an annual Summer School into the dance school. This involves spending one week of learning and rehearsing routines leading to a showcase performance on the final evening.
Nicola qualified under the Northern Counties Dance Teachers’ Association in the summer of 2008 and in July 2011, graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a First Class BA(Hons) Degree in Dance Studies.
In 2013, she qualified as an Associate member of the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA).
Nicola has also gained Level 4 Diplomas in Modern Jazz and Tap under the IDTA, and now holds Licentiate Degrees of the Ballet and Modern Jazz Faculties with the IDTA.
Nicola is also a licensed teacher of ‘Melody Movement’, ‘Tip Tap Toe’ and ‘Groovy Moves’, ‘First Ballet’, and ‘First Tap and Modern’.
