About the lesson
In my dance lessons you will find that I am very attentive and will always listen to what my students want to get from my classes. My classes vary in their structure, but usually we will do a warm up, go over some new moves and grooves or exercises, and then start to learn a new dance (choreographed in a certain style by myself), and then wind down by having a good stretch at the end.
Where in other classes we can focus more on technique and conditioning which would involve strengthening the body's core (and other muscles), while developing coordination, balance, alignment and optimising flexibility.
I love dance and the confidence it builds within people, especially when you can put on a tune that you love and start to move freely and confidently within yourself. My dance lessons aren't just about learning dance and the steps or movements... they're about positivity, self love and enjoying something you may have wanted to do for a long time but just never got around to it.
If you also just want to look good dancing and have some cool moves for a celebration or party coming up, or for your social media (TikTok/Instagram etc.) I am more than happy to help with this. Or if you are one of those people who feels like you have no rhythm, or that you have two left feet, then we can go over some basics and start to get you grooving to your favourite tunes.

I started my dance lessons when I was 3 years old taking ballet, tap and jazz, and I never stopped! My Nan instilled a love for dance and music in me from watching musicals, seeing live performances and taking me to my dance classes. From my teen years I began to expand my styles and took classes in Street dance and Hip Hop (as I watched many dance films and thought the style was very cool.) At college I then went on to learn a lot about Contemporary dance for A level, and even though it's a great style to learn and I enjoy choreographing Contemporary, it was never fully me. Then as I started to mature I wanted to have that feminine side added to my dance repertoire so I took up pole and started to learn Burlesque.
I am a qualified and experienced IDTA and freelance teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience to students aged 3-50+ in different dance schools and settings. I love choreographing and I'm experienced in teaching and choreographing the following styles: Street/HipHop, Jazz/Jazz funk, Contemporary, Tap, Burlesque, Musicals and more.
I would say my dance style is a mixture of the above, I like to be hard hitting and have an attitude for things like Street, but I also love that feminine quality of dancing like a woman, and at the same time there's always a part of me wanting to be like Gene Kelly and making a big musical number like 'Singing in the rain'.

Perfect! Alexandra was fantastic, we had asked for a short dance for our upcoming wedding and she didn’t disappoint. Very friendly, she immediately put us both at ease. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
Perfect! If there was a 10000/5 option, I would definitely pick it! Alex is so, so friendly and has such good energies. I loved it!
- Alexandra's response : Absolutely enthusiastic, friendly dance student!
Perfect! Very friendly and approachable for my toddlers 1:1 dancing sessions. Bluebell loves her dancing sessions! Reliable and trust-worthy, would recommend!
- Alexandra's response : .
Perfect! My partner and I hired Alex just a few weeks before our wedding. She not only managed to teach us a 5 min first dance routine but also mixed our chosen tracks into a seamless medley.
We absolutely loved learning from her online and in person. She has an amazingly positive attitude and wasn’t fazed by our lack of dance ability at all! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is a complete beginner! Thanks so much Alex!
