Founder & Instructor
Alice Marshall, originally from Gloucestershire, England, began her dance training with the Annette Adams School of Dance in Bristol. Showing great promise at the tender age of 11, she performed with the Royal Ballet at the Bristol Hippodrome. At 15, she was awarded a scholarship to attend the London School of Classical Ballet, where she was taught by the legendary Molly Lake and Travis Kemp, both of whom were among the first dancers to perform for the Royal Ballet, founded by Dame Ninette de Valois.
She performed with ‘Dance for Everyone’--a company bringing Ballet to schools, which aimed to break the stereotype of ballet being only for the elite.
She has been dedicated to teaching the art of ballet through the Cecchetti Method for the past 35 years. She holds a Licentiate (a teaching qualification from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance) and continues to extend her knowledge with regular courses, keeping up to date with progessive teaching ideas.
