Meet the team

Jacqueline

I am qualified in Ballet, Modern, Tap and National, having trained in West London, finishing with my teacher training with Elizabeth Harrison. I then took two years out of college to dance in summer and winter seasons in Margate and Jersey. I then went on to get Diplomas in Ballet and Modern and hold a CDE (certificate in Dance Education) in Health and Safety. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, watching our VSD children grow and develop their dance skills and confidence. I am constantly delighted that so many of my pupils stay with us for such a long time, with many coming back to my Adult classes, helping at show time and now teaching with me.

Meg Edmonds

Meg danced at the VSD from the age of 2 up until 18. She then trained at a college sixth form where she received distinctions in her level 3 dance btec. Meg graduated from the Margaret Howard Theatre college in 2018, performing her last shows at Sadler’s Wells. She is fully qualified in Ballet, Tap and Street Dance/Commercial. She starting assisting at the VSD at the age of 14 and now Meg runs numerous classes including, Tap, Jazz, Street Dance, & Ballet.

Harriet Gray

I have been dancing at VSD since 1988 and have previously taught at the school. I have a GCSE in Dance, an AS and an A Level in Dance and Performing Arts. I also studied for a BA Honours in Dance Studies at Roehampton University. I’m extremely excited to have my DDI (Diploma in Dance Instruction) in Tap and my DDE (Diploma in Dance Education). I run the admin side of VSD on Saturday mornings, taking fee money, uniform orders and answering any questions. I am now a dancing Mummy at the school! I am always ready and look forward to covering any dance classes.

All our staff are DBS checked and qualified with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.
