Laura is a qualified Primary teacher (BA QTS Performing Arts / Drama), and has her Certificate of Dance in Education from the ISTD. She’s First Aid trained (including Mental Health first aid) – and before creating LCN Performing Arts in 2006, loved teaching at Pineapple Performing Arts School in Covent Garden – working on their educational outreach programme for 16-21 year olds, y@p.
She has taught in the London area for almost twenty years, and been a freelance performing arts teacher for the past ten. Most recently (from 2017/18), she’s worked as a Year 5 teacher and ran the hugely successful Glee Club at All Saints. Prior to this, Laura taught dance and drama at numerous local schools including St Margarets Lee C of E, John Ball Primary School, Alleyn’s (Dulwich) and St Dunstan’s College (Catford).
“Our job as teacher and tutor incorporates many roles. We need to be aware of the student’s academic, social and moral welfare – to develop them holistically. This enables them to reach and celebrate their full potential.”
To be honest it all started with Fame, back in the 80’s. Laura has danced wherever she can ever since.
