Meet The Teachers...


Laura (Principal, Sing, Dance, Act & LAMDA Teacher)... 

"I began my training at Cheshire College of Performing Arts, where I gained a Advanced BTEC National Diploma in Musical Theatre and LAMDA Acting Awards. Throughout my training I thoroughly enjoyed starring in many stage performances. I have also completed my dance, acro, cheerleading & LAMDA teaching qualifications.

Since my training, I firstly toured the North-West as a part of a vocal duo called ‘SWAY’. From then I have been represented by one of the leading North-West casting agents. For 2 years I appeared on ‘Coronation Street’ as one of the factory girls. I also had roles on 'CBeebies', 'Crimes That Shook Britain', 'Hollyoaks’ as ‘Young Zoe’, Peter Kay's 'Pop Factor' and too many more to mention. 

I have appeared on many different soaps, dramas, films and commercials, even working with big names like Sylvester Stallone, Denise Welch, David Beckham and Jamie Oliver.

​My favourite things are my three beautiful daughters, our doggy called 'Martha Shadazzle Glitter Sparkle', the colour purple, leopard print and glitter!


​Over a 18 year period I have gained so much experience in the performing arts and TV industry, I feel it is now my time to pass on my experience, knowledge, skills and talents to the children of Shadazzle School of Performing Arts"


Lucy (Head Coach of Cheerleading)...

"From the age of 4 I have been a Rhythmic Gymnast, I competed regionally and nationally until my retirement at the age of 16. I then went straight into coaching gymnastics and also went on to train and compete in cheerleading until I was 21.


I then took the leap to open my own cheerleading academy and I am Level 5 Cheer Coach qualified in Stunts, Tumbles and Tosses. I am also qualified in Level 2 in Gymnastics, have a Degree in Dance and Fitness, a qualified First Aid Trainer, PT, Fitness Instructor and Exercise to Music Teacher.  


My favourite things are spending days out or in with my family. Watching movies, ordering take out and sleeping. 


I love to share my knowledge and passion with all of the students at Shadazzle!"

Daniella (Dance & Musical Theatre Teacher)...

“From the age of 3 I always knew that I wanted to be a dancer. I trained at Phil Winstons Theatre Works in Blackpool where I left with a diploma in dance and musical theatre. I also became a qualified IDTA dance teacher.


While training I had the chance to be apart of some amazing opportunity’s such as; An extra in ‘Hollyoaks’, performed in ‘Legally Blonde’ at the Liverpool Empire, ‘Blue light charity ball’ at the Blackpool Tower, ‘The Carl Alan Awards’ and on the main stage ‘Can You Dance’ at the Liverpool Echo Arena.


Since leaving college, I got my first professional dance contract in India (Mumbai) with Riaarna Entertainment where I danced alongside the Indian Bollywood stars.


My favourite things to do is spend time with my family and friends, going out for dinners and lots of trips to the theatre. I can’t wait to get started and share my knowledge of dance and musical theatre with you all.”


Rhe (Head of Dance & Shadazzle Elite)...

"I have always been passionate about dancing and performing since the age of 3 at Merseyside Dance & Drama Centre (MDDC). I completed numerous ISTD exams training in ballet, tap and modern as well as training in jazz, musical theatre, commercial, lyrical/contemporary and acting. I also performed in many shows during this time. I went into full time training at age 17 for 3 years and graduated as a qualified teacher and professional dancer. During my full time training I had performed at CYD?, the Liverpool empire theatre and twice for Liverpool One’s Christmas light switch on as well as our annual shows. 

After graduating I found a love for Heels which grew my confidence more than ever and I got the opportunity to join Phoenix AYAW? Heels company for 2 years and I have been lucky enough to learn from industry professionals Sharon June, Robyn Laud and Paige Goulding which has advanced me in my professional career. 

I am still a passionate dancer myself and continue to build on my own training to give the best to my own students and give them the best opportunities I can. My love for choreographing and teaching has grown since graduating college so I’m so excited to continue my journey with you all and share my knowledge and training with Shadazzle!"


Aleah (Cheer/Tumbling Coach & Head of Acro Dance)...

I have always struggled to find a hobby that I have thoroughly enjoyed until I became apart of Shadazzle, since the first day it opened back in 2016! The knowledge I have gained has not only gave me so much confidence but has also taught me to persevere, and to never forget that the most important part of being within the Shadazzle family is to have fun! 

Ever since I can remember I have always had an appreciation for Performing Arts - from being four years old and watching ‘Hairspray’ the musical on the West End, to my eighteenth Birthday and watching ‘Mamma Mia’, also on the West End.

I am currently studying BSc (Hons) Forensics, Policing and Investigations at Liverpool John Moores University. Through my first year, I found that Cheerleading became one of my passions outside of my studies; therefore, I gained my Level 1&2 qualification in Cheerleading from the British Cheerleading Association and my Acrobatic Dance teachers qualification. This has allowed me to be able to gain the knowledge for our teams to excel in this astounding sport. I can’t wait to see what this year has anticipated for us all! 



Lisa (Admin Manager/Cheer Coach)...

I’ve always had a passion for dance.  I started dancing when I was just 3 years old training in Ballet, Tap, Modern and National, I was also a Cheerleader for several seasons for the Chester Jets!

Having also taught whilst I was younger it has always been a dream of mine to one day go back to teaching. Since my daughter became a part of Shadazzle , I just instantly felt a part of the family and after volunteering on the PTA and assisting on the desk, I knew it was time to do more.  I have since qualified as a Level 1&2 Cheer Coach.  I am super excited to go on to do more!  

When I’m not at Shadazzle I’m mum to two children aged 13 and 8 and I love chilling on sofa with something good on TV. Xx
