Meet The Teachers...

Laura (Principal/Director/Acting Teacher/Singing 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.

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, and still do appear on many different soaps, dramas, films and commercials,even working with big names like Sylvester Stallone, Denise Welch, David Beckham and Jamie Oliver. I also have completed my Acrobatics teaching certification.

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

 

​Over a fifteen 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"

Sarah (Head of Dance/Dance Teacher/Acro Teacher/Musical Theatre Teacher)...

"I first began dancing at the age of 4. I have performed in hundreds of shows including professional shows and pantomimes all over the country, too many to mention! I have also gained hundreds of awards and titles too. I have appeared in 'Bliss' magazine for Pineapple dance wear. And I have also appeared in CBBC's Xchange. 

 

My dream was to be professionally trained, So I attended Phil Winston's in Blackpool for 3 years. I specialised in Ballet, tap, modern, jazz, street, commercial, freestyle, lyrical, contemporary, musical theatre and freestyle. 

 

I have gained my Associate teaching qualifications with the IDTA. To add to my qualifications I have gained my Acrobatics Teacher  Certification, Fitness Instructor qualification in 'Exercise to Music' as well as being qualified to teach Streetfit, Aerial Hoop and Pole Fitness too.

 

My favourite things are my wonderful boyfriend Ashley, all things that glitter and Games Of Thrones. My favourite food is chocolate brownies. 

 

With my 20+ years of experience to share with our students, I adore working with all our Shadazzle students and teaching them what I love!"

Shannon (Dance Teacher/Acro Teacher)...

 

"I first started dancing when I was 3 years old studying modern, tap and ballet at my local dance school. Throughout my 20+ years of dancing, I have gained a GCSE, A-Level and a Bachelors Degree in Dance Studies which gave me plenty of opportunities to perform on a wide range of stages across the country. I have my teachers certification in Acrobatics, as well as a high level of training in contemporary, jazz, lyrical and all other dance genres. I have also studied pole fitness. 

At 16, I was lucky enough to gain a full scholarship into Centre for Advanced Training in dance based at the Lowry Theatre in Manchester. I worked with various dance companies such as Rambert, Siobhan Davies, Fallen Angel's and Random and was selected to perform on behalf of Matthew Bourne which was an amazing experience!

My favourite things are Harry Potter, penguins, the colour blue and, of course, glitter! My favourite food is garlic bread.

I am very excited to be a part of Team Shadazzle and look forward to helping the students reach their goals and develop their skills with my experience, knowledge and passion for performing arts!"
