Sally first started Ballet as a young child and then progressed on to Modern Theatre, Tap and Jazz Dance. She originally trained with Grosvenor Academy of Dance and then moved to Oakwood Academy of Dance where she was trained by Miss Beverley and acquired all her major dance exams.

She has been teaching at Oakwood Academy of Dance for over twenty years. Sally thoroughly enjoys the challenges of teaching children from the age of two and a half to eighteen. She has choreographed numerous routines (too many to count!) for their annual shows held at The Point in Eastleigh.For fifteen years Sally was the Dance Director for the award winning Centrestage Productions Youth Theatre (CPYT), based in Eastleigh, and has choreographed many shows including Hood The Musical, Fame The Musical, The Wizard of Oz, Les Miserables Schools Edition, Oliver, Disco Inferno and Bugsy Malone. She was then their Production Manager for a further 4 years. Sally has choreographed two productions for Eastleigh Operatic and Musical Society, Gondoliers and Fiddler on the Roof and for the past seven years has been the Choreographer for Christchurch Gilbert and Sullivan Society. During the day Sally is an Early Years Teaching Assistant at Chandlers Ford Infant School, a job which she thoroughly enjoys.  Sally is Paediatric First Aid trained and has a Level 3 qualification in Specialist Support in Teaching and Learning in Schools. Sally loves the family atmosphere at Oakwood Academy and the close relationship between all the Teaching Team.
