Rising Star Dance Teachers


Mrs Keli Vine Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop & Eisteddfod classes.

Dancing for 25 years and teaching for 20 years shows the passion that I hold for dance. I enjoy teaching all of my students and my favorite part of the year is the concert and seeing their growth in their dance and confidence to stand on that stage and perform for family and friends.  I enjoy being able to challenge the students and am very proud when I see them achieve the challenging steps and their excitement for the next challenge. I look forward to teaching your son or daughter in many dance styles throughout the year.

Miss Sophie Fox – Assistant teacher Tinies Ballet and Jazz

Dancing since the age of 4 in various styles, I dance because it makes me feel strong and beautiful, it’s like nothing else matters. Dancing gives me a sense of freedom and a sense of happiness that doesn’t usually happen when I am not dancing. I love going to Rising Star Dance and seeing my amazing dance teacher and friends, it just makes being there so worth it.  I help teach the little kiddies class on Saturdays and it brings so much joy to me seeing them having a cheesy smile on their face. It means so much that I get this opportunity. I would love to teach properly at Rising Star dance as I believe teaching other students will better me and the way I portray my emotions in dance.

Miss Biance Cronin – Junior Acrobatics

I have been dancing since the age of 4, I dance because it brings happiness to me and others, dancing can tell a story or message and it’s important. When I dance I feel so free and alive it just brings out so many good emotions, it’s so natural to me, it’s like breathing. I would LOVE to teach because it’s so important to be able to make people feel the same way, and to teach what I love doing is just a dream job. I’ve always wanted to teach and be as gifted as Miss Keli, it would be just WOW. I would 100% love to be a teacher at Rising Star Dance, my family, and cannot wait to start teaching you’re son or daughter in 2018.
