TMP Team

I have always strived to develop a school which offers students high quality teaching methods and to give our students the necessary skills that will enable them to flourish as dancers whilst keeping the true passion of dance alive in an environment which is nurturing with a new age approach. For me dance has always been so much more than movement. It is a way of self expression that is beyond words.
