Lisa Langley


Miss Lisa began dancing at the age of 2 and instantly fell in love with it, particularly Ballet. After progressing through her RAD Ballet grades from Primary to Advanced, she successfully auditioned to further her training at the Upper School of the Royal Ballet School in London at the age of 18 where she was awarded the prestigious Diploma in Teaching of Ballet after completing a full time three year course. She grew up in the spotlight and performed on stage from a young age.


Credits include The Royal Variety Performance, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat (UK Tour), Wizard of Oz, Annie, Les Miserables, Calamity Jane, Riverdance (Hammersmith Apollo), Sleeping beauty (Lilac Fairy) to name a few. As a student of the Royal Ballet School she appeared on the stage at Covent Garden alongside dancers of the Royal Ballet. The most memorable moment was being part of the Gala to commemorate the life of Sir Kenneth Macmillan. Lisa decided to set up her own dance school in 1997 to pass on what she had learnt to students. Since graduating Lisa has also qualified to be a Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) and ChiChi Fit instructor and keeps up to date with all the RAD work by attending regular courses in London.


Ballet has always been my passion.  I believe that everyone can share the joy of dance and achieve wonderful results at the same time as learning life skills such as discipline, dedication and team work. - Miss Lisa

Sue Bolland

Adult Yoga

Sue discovered yoga 10 years ago whilst looking to help stretch out after other sporting activities but immediately discovered something so much more meaningful.  Attending classes on a regular basis she soon realised its power to help the body and calm the mind and very soon it became the most important part of her recreational life. This led a strong desire to encourage others to discover its benefits, so after enrolling in a 200 hour teacher training programme with Sally Parkes in 2015, she began teaching professionally with various styles including Hatha, vinyasa flow, restorative and stretch based conditioning, also regularly assisting on Sally’s teacher training programme and completing a restorative yoga course with Paula Hines.
