My teaching career began in the form of a baby ballet class comprised of 6 girls in 2004 (including my youngest daughter and her friends). In 2007, I bought a small local dance school, launching Lawlor School of Dance with a initial base of 30 students. In 2009, we performed our first (bi-annual) show of "Tinkerbell's Colourful Journey", having grown to 76 students. Over the years, the school has developed and grown into a total of approximately 150 students, ranging from 3 year olds right up to my lovely adult ballet classes.
When we first launched, we offered a variety of dance classes, however over the years I began cut back on the styles we teach to enable me to offer the highest quality Classical Ballet training I can. We now offer RAD Ballet classes up to Adv 2 standard, Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT), Pointe Work and Contemporary dance training.
This has led to multiple students furthering their training at Classical Ballet and Contemporary schools and on highly regarded associate programs.
