Miss Chloe, Dance Teacher
At the age of 3 is where my dancing career began.. I studied a national diploma in performing arts leaving on a triple distinction and then went on to train at Phil Winstons Theatreworks in Blackpool for 3 years training to become an all round performer, qualifying to teach and becoming a member of the IDTA. I consider myself lucky to have a job I am so passionate about. Watching my students progress each week is an absolute honour! Everyone at the singletons academy are so talented in their own way and are such a privilege to teach! Performing and teaching for me is my passion and that has never and will never change. Remember follow your dreams! Lots of love, hugs, kisses and struts, Miss Chloe xxxxxx
