I am a firm believer in versatile pedagogic practice. I cater my teaching style to the individual however all my students learning will be underpinned with a solid understanding of anatomy and how to utilise their own facility safely and effectively.
I trained at the New English Contemporary ballet and Bird College. I have extensive experience as a performer having worked internationally for artists such as Take That, James Blunt and performing in productions such as Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and The Nutcracker. I teach at vocational level at top tier colleges in the UK and have choreographed pieces for Move It the UK’s largest dance exhibition. I am also an accredited member of the Society for Education and Training.
I am able to provide lessons in classical ballet, contemporary/modern and jazz.
I was lucky enough to be taught by Luke for a few years during my training. Luke truly is the best at what he does. His choreography and knowledge is second to none. He is a teacher who's ethics, professionalism, advice, technique and passion will stick with you throughout the entirety of your own career. Whilst being taught by Luke, I didn't only better my skills within dance but I also understood myself as a performer a lot more and quickly realised my strengths. I would always walk into a class feeling motivated and excited for a lesson with Luke and thoroughly enjoyed every minute whilst training with him. Luke really is a fantastic teacher who caters to the needs of individuals rather than addressing a class as a whole and this was something that really benefitted me and helped with my progress. I can highly highly recommend Luke as a dance tutor and cannot thank him enough for the training he gave me.
Luke is the best, most encouraging tutor I’ve ever had! He’s so supportive and I’ve noticed such a difference in just a few lessons.
Luke is an astonishing teacher. He always aims to push his students the extra mile to see progress. He always has a smile on his face and always willing to ask any questions.
Luke is a great teacher, he is passionate, inspiring and really supportive. I feel really comfortable in his classes and he has helped my confidence grow. I love these classes and would fully recommend Luke to anyone looking for fun engaging classes. Great teacher!!
My personal experience with Luke was incredible. He took time in explaining each section of the routine, allowjj in bf me time to process the information and had no issue with repeating section over again until I felt confident. It’s obvious he has a huge knowledge of the arts and this makes for such an enjoyable class with him . I highly recommend choosing Luke to ignite your passion for dance again
I was taught by Luke in various dance styles for a few years and always looked forward to his lessons. He’s both an incredible dancer and a brilliant, versatile teacher. He paces lessons well and always offers interesting exercises and choreography. He’s also incredibly funny and kind which always made for very engaging and worthwhile classes. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
I have trained and worked professionally with Luke as well as taken part in many of his classes myself.
He is an excellent tutor with a wide expanse of knowledge but also with a friendly, professional manner that helps to encourage and enhance each student's ability and personal development.
Luke was my dance tutor for two years. I cannot recommend Luke highly enough - he is professional, committed to his art, and was able to instil confidence and technique into my dancing that I was yet to uncover. Thank you Luke for supporting me throughout every step of my training!
I was in need of additional ballet lessons to improve my musical theatre studies and Luke has been fantastic at helping me improve my ballet and contemporary dance skills - highly recommend !
Luke was my ballet teacher in drama school. Having had little experience in this style of dance, it was nerve-racking for me. However Luke broke down every step and offered his guidance where needed. He is SO approachable and is one of the funniest teachers I’ve had to date. He creates a lovely environment to learn in. Always a pleasure, thank you Luke!
