Cathi started her dance training at Ransley Dance Studios in Sydney, Australia. Her parents emigrated there when she was just 2 with the amazing sum of £20 in their pockets. On returning to England she began training with Mary Leonard in Liverpool and went on to do a teachers’ training course at the prestigious Hammond School in Chester, where she became head girl. Upon graduation, Cathi began teaching at the Merseyside Dance and Drama Centre in Liverpool, where she gained valuable teaching experience with students of all ages, under the expert guidance of Miss Gaynor Owen. After nine years she moved to the Northern Ballet School, where she taught for 12 years, coaching students in National Dance, Modern Theatre and Tap to Associate and Advanced level. Cathi later returned to The Hammond School to teach in the senior department, coaching students up to Associate and Advanced level in Tap and Imperial Classical Ballet. Cathi dedicates her teaching purely to her own school now, teaching being her passion in life. She is immensely proud of the students that have passed through her hands over the years, and takes great pleasure in seeing them aspire into wonderful young performers, teachers and adults. Cathi is a Fellow and Examiner in the National, Modern and Tap Dance Faculties. Cathi has been a much sought after International Triple ISTD Examiner since 2002. Destinations Cathi has examined include South Africa, Mexico, Japan, New Zealand and other European countries.Cathi was honoured to have been awarded Gold in the IDS Dance School of The Year in 2014 for the Vocational Teacher Training College. The College was chosen above lots of other schools here and abroad. The award was presented by Wayne Sleep at a fabulous Ball. Miss Jenna Rushton collected the award on her behalf.
