Sarah Whiteside AISTD MB BB AIDTA ARADPrincipal and Ballet / Modern dance teacher


Sarah began dancing at the age of 3. Aged 16, she won a place at the prestigious Stella Mann Dance College in London on a full 3 year scholarship – something the college had never offered anyone before.

It was at Stella Mann that Sarah gained her ISTD teaching qualifications as well as Diplomas in performing and teaching. On leaving college, Sarah embarked upon a professional career, dancing with the touring ballet company The London Lewis Ballet and in various cabaret shows. She has danced on the West End stage and appeared in TV shows (Channel 4 and MTV) and music videos.

Sarah has a wealth of experience in the industry, she has choreographed dances for pantomimes, guest taught at colleges and adjudicated at dance competitions.

Sarah  continues to teach all the ballet and modern classes herself from Monday to Thursday, takes additional classes for exam training and organises competitions and other performing opportunities. Her drive and passion for her school continues to ensure that standards are forever rising and pupils receive the correct tuition to become the very best dancer they can be.

In 2017 Sarah became a Surrey licenced chaperone and is up to date with all the latest guidelines regarding the safeguarding of children.
