Dance Tutor

Headshot of Melissa Ryan

My name is Melissa and I am a dance specialist within the P&P programme at Take Part. I began dancing at the age of 4 and have grown up performing on stages all over the UK! I have trained in a variety of different styles of dance and have taken exams with Royal Academy of Dance,Trinity Guild Hall and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.

Whilst in full time training, I also had the opportunity to teach my own classes within the company. 
After graduating with two diplomas in performing arts, I was then offered a professional dance contract touring Italy for 6 months, where I performed as a dancer/Show Girl. During this contract I also trained as a fire artist and a magicians assistant. 

After returning home, I decided to continue with my teaching career. From a young age I have always wanted share my knowledge and passion for dance. 
I now work for multiple companies across the North West working with a wide age range of students (from 1-18 years old) teaching a variety of dance genres. 

As a teacher, it is my ambition to provide a fun yet challenging class for all ages and abilities…
