Journalist. Dance Writer. Dance Teacher.
Georgina Butler began ballet classes aged two-and-a-half and simply cannot imagine her life without dance. She is trained to advanced vocational level with both the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD).
Georgina is a First Class Honours graduate of the Royal Academy of Dance. As a student on the Academy’s BA (Hons) Dance Education Degree programme, Georgina achieved “Distinction” at both Certificate and Diploma levels and was awarded an academic scholarship bursary by the RAD’s Faculty of Education.
Georgina is also a graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science and trained as a journalist before building up a wealth of experience writing content for local newspapers and various websites. Now an established dance and theatre writer, she previews and reviews productions from the likes of English National Ballet, Northern Ballet and Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures. She works with these companies, and others, to advocate dance whenever the opportunity may arise.
As a dance teacher, Georgina has experience of teaching people of all ages and abilities – from tiny tots to advanced vocational students and adults. She takes great pride in sharing her enthusiasm for learning, perfecting, performing and watching dance with every dancer she meets. She endeavours to help everyone in her classes recognise their strengths and progress positively.
