I commence my dance training at the tender age of 3 years, some of my tuition being given by Miss Adele Roscoe, and then at the Thorpe-Hancock School of Dance Westgate, Mansfield.
I studied many aspects of dance, Stage, Ballet, Tap, Latin American, Ballroom and Freestyle.
On becoming qualified as a teacher I taught for many years at the Thorpe-Hancock School of Dance and eventually on the owners retirement, I inherited the school in 1984.
Whilst still developing the school I continued my training under the careful supervision of Mr Alex brown, and on my completion of all professional qualifications I was appointed a Ballroom Branch Examiner to the International Dance Teachers Association.
The school has now been established for many years at the Clipstone Miners Welfare where up to today I gave tuition to both amateur and professional pupils.
As well as it is possible for pupils to take examinations if they wish in Ballroom, Latin American and Freestyle, The Denise School of Dance pupils also present an Annual Show.
