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.

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.”
