I BEGAN THE JOURNEY OF THE RAGE DANCE COMPANY IN 2018 & IN 12 MONTHS, IT GREW INTO SOMETHING THAT IS SO SPECIAL TO ME. I TOOK A RISK, I HAD NO IDEA HOW IT WOULD TURN OUT, BUT NOW I COULDN'T IMAGINE MY LIFE WITHOUT IT. 
I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE DANCE & PERFORMING ARTS INDUSTRY SINCE THE AGE OF 9 YEARS OLD. RELATIVELY LATE WHEN WE SPEAK IN DANCE TERMS, HOWEVER THE IMPACT IT HAD ON MY ENTIRE LIFE IS ON A SCALE I COULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED. 

THROUGHOUT MY TRAINING & TEACHING, THE MORE I SAW, THE MORE IT BECAME APPARENT TO ME WHAT I WANTED TO CREATE. I WANT TO CREATE A PLATFORM FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, THE FUTURE OF OUR WORLD & PERFORMING ARTS INDUSTRY. IT IS A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN COME TO LEARN, DEVELOP AND ACQUIRE SKILLS THAT WILL NOT ONLY BUILD A STRONG FOUNDATION FOR A CAREER, BUT ALSO IMPACT THEIR LIVES IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE.

I THINK IT'S EASY TO FORGET THAT DANCE EDUCATORS TEACH MORE THAN JUST STEPS. 

EVERY TIME I STEP INTO THE STUDIO, I AM REMINDED I HAVE A GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO MODEL THEMSELVES AROUND THOSE WHO INSPIRE THEM & THEIR DANCE TEACHER IS USUALLY INCLUDED IN THAT MIX. I PLACE A HIGH VALUE ON EMPOWERING MY STUDENTS THAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF ANYTHING THEY SET THEIR MIND TO, THAT GENDER SETS NO BOUNDARIES, TO ALWAYS REMAIN THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY ARE ENOUGH, TO LOOK AFTER THEIR BODY & MIND & THAT WORK ETHIC WILL GET YOU ANYWHERE. MY STAFF ARE PEOPLE WHO I KNOW SUPPORT & INFILTRATE THAT VISION TOO.

TRAINING YOUNG PEOPLE IS TOUGH, BUT IT IS SO REWARDING. SOMETIMES FIRM DISCIPLINE & ALLOWING THEM TO FALL SO THEY CAN FLY CAN BE SO HARD TO WATCH, BUT WHEN THEY DO SOAR, THE PRIDE THEY HOLD IS SO FULFILLING. I DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO MAKE SURE THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH MY STUDENTS TRAIN IN IS ALWAYS SUPPORTIVE, DISCIPLINE IS A 
NECESSITY & EQUIPS JUST AS MUCH AS KINDNESS. I MAKE SURE THAT THEY REALISE BOTH ARE THINGS THEY MUST BE ACCUSTOMED TO. I TAKE A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO THEIR TRAINING, BECAUSE I WANT THEM TO BE DEVELOPED AS WHOLE DANCERS, NOT JUST IN STEPS. REGARDLESS OF AGE, THEY ARE ARTISTS & I WANT THEM TO BE NURTURED FOR ALL THAT THEY ARE. I WANT THEM TO GROW INTO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN FULLY EQUIPPED TO FACE ANYTHING, BOTH IN PERFORMING ARTS & THEIR DAILY LIVES. I BELIEVE THAT IF I ONLY TEACH THEM STEPS, I'M NOT DOING MY JOB PROPERLY & I'M NOT FULFILLING MY COMMITMENT TO THEIR TRAINING.

SO WELCOME TO THE RAGE DANCE COMPANY, MY LITTLE DREAM WHERE I MAKE IT MY PROMISE TO PROVIDE QUALITY PERFORMING ARTS TRAINING, POSITIVE PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCES & INSPIRING MENTORSHIP FOR EVERY DANCER THAT WALKS THROUGH THE RAGE DOORS. THE GIFTS & LESSONS DANCE CAN BRING ARE ENDLESS, AND THE JOURNEY IS ONE THAT IS TRUELY SPECIAL. HERE'S TO THE JOYS THAT DANCE BRINGS TO YOU & YOUR DANCER. 

LOVE & LIGHT,
