Meet the Principal
A warm welcome to you, my name is Lucy Lewis and I am the principal of Destined 2 Dance. I established the school in the summer of 2012 achieving my long standing dream of running my own dance academy.
I began dancing at the age of five where I trained at a local dance academy for several years. After leaving secondary school I studied to obtain a National Diploma In performing Arts (Dance) where I gained a grade Distinction. I then attended Bournemouth University to study and obtain an FdA Degree in Dance.
In 2009 I qualified as an Associate Disco Freestyle teacher with the United Kingdom Alliance of Professional Teachers of Dancing (UKA); an awarding organisation which is validated by The Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET). The CDET are the quality assurance agency of the professional dance and musical theatre industries.
Most recently I completed the Level Four award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector; specialising in dance practice. This qualification is designed for teachers who are committed to continued professional development and who wish to further their knowledge of the key principles of teaching and learning.
My experience within the dance sector has allowed me to develop a diverse and accomplished understanding of the art form. Alongside achieving professional status, studying to obtain a Dance Diploma and FdA Degree has enabled me to acquire both a practical and academic insight into the performing art of dance. I firmly believe that such experiences have equipped me with a sound knowledge and skills set in order to teach to the best of my ability.
I have an Enhanced CRB Disclosure Check and I am first aid trained. Furthermore I am a fully insured member of the United Kingdom Alliance of Professional Teachers of Dancing.
I am committed to running my school with ongoing dedication and professionalism. Teaching is my passion and I am eager to pass on my love for dance to my students in order that they can experience its vast benefits. I am incredibly proud of Destined 2 Dance and feel blessed to have the support of my students and their parents. I am also fortunate to have the support of my wonderful mum who provides her assistance at all of my classes. Her name is Carol and together we form team Destined 2 Dance! Carol also has an Enhanced CRB Disclosure Check.
