Arwen started dancing at the age of 4 with The Manor School of Ballet. While studying with us, Arwen worked through the Royal Academy of Dance childrens examinations, culminating in a distinction for the Grade 8 award.
Arwen has also sat intermediate exams with both the R.A.D and I.S.T.D.
During her years as a student, Arwen performed frequently with the school at charity events and has appeared with Scottish Ballet, North West Pacific Ballet & the Northern Ballet.
At the age of 19, Arwen went to study at the University of Edinburgh obtaining a Masters Degree in Philosophy, however, her love of dance and teaching meant that she continued to assist in class and perform with us.
Upon graduating from university, Arwen enrolled on the R.A.D teaching program where she gained her Registered Teacher status.
We are fortunate to have Arwen on the teaching staff, her kind and professional approach is appreciated by staff and pupils alike. Arwen currently looks after all of our external nurseries and organises charity performances throughout Edinburgh & Galashiels.
If you see Arwen rushing around, give her a wave!
