I approach my classes based upon the goals that my students wish to achieve and then strategies a plan and time frame of how we are going to achieve these goals and by when. (I also use the moto that goals are limitless)

Stage Studio is a Performing Arts School based in the heart of London. I currently coordinate their dance program on a weekly basis. Here I am solely working with children aged 4-16.

Perfect! Jamie is a great teacher, she explains everything thoroughly and takes the lesson at your pace. The lessons are really enjoyable and I feel that they will really help with my college auditions.
I have delivered 2 online lessons for Matilda and can already see that she has amazing potential to grow into an incredibly strong technique dancer with the right training and determination!
She is already learning my advanced exercises and is not afraid of working hard! I have every faith that she will conquer her auditions in the near future and continue to grow into an exceptional performance artist!
Well done Tillie! :)
Perfect! Jamie is really patient and an excellent teacher. I love our sessions she is very knowledgeable about dance. Highly recommend.
Victoria has recently taken lessons with me in Ballet via zoom, she was nervous that as she is a beginner she might not be able to pick up the movement but with slow steps she is making great progress and becoming a more confident mover! I always look forward to our lessons and am happy that she continues to make progress
Perfect! Jamie gave my son some dance lessons to help him prepare for a musical theatre audition. She was able to fit him in at short notice and come up with a plan which focused on core technique and posture. Coordinating with her to schedule the sessions and handle the payments etc was easy and she was very responsive. Highly recommend!
Elliot has a huge potential to accelerate very quickly in his technique as a dancer! I wish him all the best for his audition!!
Perfect! I've had one class with Jamie and it went well very well. I was explained the structure of how the class would go before starting, and put at ease learning something that is totally unfamiliar to me. I look forward to continuing.
Hannah has great potential to mould her new skills in dance to use in a wider range of ways, she should continue to work on her flexibility and fluidity in movement
Perfect! Jamie really took the time to build my learning plan around my specific needs. As a circus performer seeking ballet training to improve my stylings in my 30's I have an unusual learner profile and she really took these into account.
Jamie took me through rigorous set fo exercises and drills that improved my agility, coordination, and flexibility. She kept up the right level of 'push' to keep me motivated and improving whilst keeping lessons playful and fun
As a bonus the exercises we have been doing massively improved my posture and as a result, got rid of the lower back pain I had had for years. Much cheaper and more effective than going to the chiropractor!
Roman is a hard worker with a goal to achieve a stronger movement quality.
We had 10 hours worth of lessons and worked over the month, every week building staminer, working on alignment and agility, confidence and getting a wider range of move e t for his performance art fire breathing and circus act.
Roman is a strong mover and I really enjoyed helping improve on his dance technique!
Perfect! I had my first lesson with Jamie mid March 2019. It was great! Jamie made me feel relaxed and confortable. The lesson in itself was very good too. I didn't expect to learn so fast the basic moves. Actually I learned about 6 or 7 different moves, all integrated in 1 dance. Can't wait my next lesson!
Jamie is an amazing tutor, I got so much out of her workshop, it was truly amazing! I definitely recommend her.
Really enjoyed Dancing with Jamie, her teaching style is really engaging found myself challenged and eager to do more! Not to mention the wide range of genres she covers, I've been able to practice my contemporary dance routines but also strengthen my physical strength with Yoga exercises. We recorded some of our session so I have been able to practice in the downtime which has been amazing. Will definitely be booking more classes!
Jamie is an excellent teacher, I got a lot out of the workshop and I would definitely recommend to whoever needs it!
Jamie is a lovely tutor. Her sessions take a nice pace and she is able to adapt her teaching to the varying needs of her participants. Her lessons incorporate a complimentary mix of dance, yoga, reflection and breath work. Particularly helpful over the past year when we have all needed to relax. She is a great antidote to lockdown!
Jamie is an excellent teacher! Very patient and extremely skilful!
Jamie is a very well trained, friendly dance instructor. I highly recommend!
