A former professional dancer who has danced all over the world is to pass her passion on to the next generation of dancers.
Natasha Gillan is opening her own babyballet school in Winsford, Cheshire, this month (February) and there is no shortage of willing youngsters wanting to join her.
Before the 29-year-old even opens her doors she has more than 100 children on her books – thanks to the power of social media.
Natasha, who lives in Winsford, has been dancing since she could walk and after leaving school attended the Merseyside Dance and Drama College. She got her first professional job at a holiday camp and then moved onto cruise liners and says it was wonderful to get paid for doing something she loved whilst seeing the world at the same time. She has danced all over Europe and seen America and China too.
She got homesick however and after getting engaged to her boyfriend, Ben, 12 months ago, decided it was time to put down roots. The couple are getting married in May 2017. She taught fitness and dance classes, at various dance schools when she returned to the UK one of them being a babyballet school.
“I love children and teaching and knew instantly this was my future, so I decided to open my own babyballet school. It’s scary starting my own business but exciting too, and the interest already shown proves there is a need for such an academy in Winsford,” says Natasha.
Natasha is opening at Polar Palace Play Centre and St Chad’s Church Hall on February 23 and hopes to expand and add more venues later in the year.
She has an introductory offer of £15 for a three week trial.
