Breeze Academy of Dance

Breeze academy of Dance first opened its doors in 2001 with just seven pupils, now a well established school in the area Toni has earned the respect of parents and pupils and Breeze has grown to over 200 pupils. Breeze has all dance levels available and the subjects that can be taken are Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz, Tiny Breezers, Tots, Adult Jazz, Breeze Performers, singing, dancing and acting. Toni continually updates her knowledge and practical work within the grades, so pupils have the latest amendments and skills.

Our aim is to educate boys and girls in the magical world of dance and theatre, giving them the opportunity and confidence to perform in enjoyable classes, fun shows and examinations. This training may one day lead to a professional career.

Anna began dancing at the age of 2, she studied RAD, ISTD and Cecchetti ballet successfully gaining all grades up until advance 2, Anna also studied ISTD tap, modern, disco and rock’n’roll again obtaining all her grades. Anna graduated Poole and Bournemouth College with a triple distinction in BTEC performing arts, she then went on to study at Bath Spa University. Returning from university she studied with Dancemode and Fitzell Roberts School of dance where she qualified as an IDTA associate freestyle teacher and ISTD DDI ballet, tap and modern qualified teacher. Anna has always had a strong passion for dance and performing arts which she wants to pass on to all her students.

Lizzie began her professional dance career upon graduating from Bird College London. Theatre Credits include Her Majesty's Theatre London, Orchard Theatre Sidcup, Bournemouth Pavilion and The Southbank Show Waterloo. Lizzie also appeared with the Red Ice dancers in numerous internet adverts as well as taking on the role of Head Dancer for Parkdean Resorts. After taking a step away from performing Lizzie trained in strength and conditioning. The importance of strength and flexibility for performers is clear to Lizzie and she now wants to pass this on to the students she teaches.

Jade graduated from the London College of music with a BA (hons) in musical theatre. Whilst training, she was part of the Original London cast of 'Bel Ami' by Alex Loveless. She went on to be an actor at the London dungeons, starred in various pantos and musicals and took a co-written play to the Camden fringe. Jade still continues to perform, but having a true love of musical theatre, wishes to inspire and teach others in this area.

Every two years Breeze produces what I consider a professional show, this is held at “The Layard Theatre”. All the children are involved and they just love show time as it gives them the confidence and chance to show off to family and friends - after all isn’t that what it’s all about? This is a major production show and many people are involved, producer, choreographers, costume designers, costume makers, lighting crew, sound crew, backstage crew, front of house crew, photographers, film crew, children, adults and parents. This is a truly enjoyable and memorable experience for all involved.

Breeze Performers Show
Breeze Performers is a class for all children who enjoy all aspects of the Theatre world, we put on a mini show every year in between our main school production, and also perform in our school production, this gives them the opportunity and experience to do a show every year

As of December 2018 we will also be doing a yearly charity Christmas show and panto, half of the proceeds will go to a chosen charity and the other half will go to maintaining and improving the studio.

We run a 4 day Easter and summer school, bringing in guest teachers who work in the industry to teach the students different skills and techniques with a performance on the final day from friends and family more information can be found on our Facebook page.


I am very proud of all the children I teach, they manage to get themselves to a very high standard, regardless whether they choose to take the examinations offered. And not forgetting I am also very proud of all my ex pupils whether they continued a career in dance or another profession.

Pupils Dance Achievements;
