She is leaning forwards slightly and writing in an open notebook that is positioned on the floor directly in front of her.

 

Georgina started ballet lessons when she was a toddler and cannot imagine life without dance. She trained at advanced vocational level with both the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD). She still takes ballet classes with renowned teachers from across the UK and internationally.

Georgina is a first class honours graduate and registered teacher of the Royal Academy of Dance (BA (Hons), RAD RTS). She achieved distinction at both certificate and diploma level and was awarded an academic bursary by the RAD’s Faculty of Education.

Georgina is also a graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science (BSc (Hons) LSE), a qualified journalist (National Council for the Training of Journalists), and a trained editor (The Publishing Training Centre). Her editorial career to date has included reporting for local newspapers, writing for websites, and creating and editing content for global brands.

As a dance and theatre writer, Georgina 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, as an advocate for dance.

As a ballet teacher, Georgina is experienced in 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, improving, performing and watching dance. Above all, she endeavours to help everyone she works with recognise their strengths and progress positively.
