My Brand New Site

Hi Guys!

After a year of trying to juggle all kinds of sites and pages all over the internet, I have finally managed to get all of the fantastic free information I provide together in one spot!

My brand new site is up and operating, and is packed with information so I will not be posting on this site any more.

To celebrate, and as my Christmas present to the world I have released a FREE Downloadable Parents Manual packed with information of how parents can best support their child when they are passionate about dancing.

To let you know how well it has gone down with those who have already seen it, here is what one mother I gave it to had to say about it…

“As a non-dancing mother of two young dancers I have entered the world of dance and feel completely unprepared. Thankfully the ‘Parents Manual’ has rescued me! So many questions in my head have been answered and I have my Manual handy to refer to over and over again. My girls love to dance and I love them…and now I feel more confident to support them in becoming wonderful healthy dancers.” (K.C)

So go over to the new site now and check it all out!

Talk soon,
