Georgina Butler — Dance Teacher
Georgie is an inspirational teacher to all ages. She has endless patience with beginners, and returnees like me. She is a very special, clever, teacher and person.
Sally Fennemore MBE, adult ballet student.
I look forward to each lesson with Georgie. She is so encouraging and enthusiastic and it’s clear she loves sharing her extensive knowledge with pupils of all ages and abilities.
Georgie has a lovely way of giving corrections to really help me improve my technique. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her. She is an excellent teacher, fun and engaging, patient and kind.
Alison Clarke, adult ballet student.
Miss Georgie is a wonderfully kind and patient teacher who makes a huge effort to get to know her pupils. My 12-year-old son, Thomas, attended a class for older students who were all new to ballet. He wanted to use the ballet to improve his performance as a Latin and Ballroom dancer.
Miss Georgie was accommodating and encouraging, taking time to really explain the technique and the feel of each movement. She was able to welcome and integrate Thomas, who is autistic, into the class and adapt her teaching to suit his individual needs. He made good progress and enjoyed Miss Georgie’s calm teaching style.
We would recommend Miss Georgie’s classes to anyone, whether they are four and destined for the stage or 54 and wanting to learn a new skill and improve their fitness.
Helen Bisson, mother of 12-year-old student Thomas.
Miss Georgie is just the sweetest teacher you’ll ever meet and what she doesn’t know about ballet isn’t worth knowing. Her passion for dance just oozes from her soul.
Thomas Bisson, 12-year-old student.
Georgie is an amazing teacher devoted to dance.
She will listen to you, support you, encourage you and help you understand and correct your technique, so you can improve. She adapts herself to every student, finding different ways to communicate ballet concepts.
The exercises Georgie uses in her adult classes vary so you never get bored and she also proposes variations for each exercise so that students can always choose the difficulty they want to be confronted with.
There is a very good atmosphere in Georgie’s classes. I really enjoy dancing with her and she has helped me a lot to improve my ballet technique.
Tiana Miclo, adult ballet student.
I am a professional contemporary dancer who has graduated from the University of Bedfordshire.
During my years of training, I did not find any interest in ballet though I took numerous ballet classes. Now I am working as a dancer, I am taking ballet classes with Georgie to support my professional development and performance.
As a ballet teacher, Georgie has helped enlighten me about ballet and technique. Georgie is a kind and patient teacher who works to address each individual student’s needs.
Jason Kwan, dancer of NotetoSELF DanCe.
I can’t recommend Georgie’s ballet classes highly enough. I love them.
Coming back to ballet later in life can be a daunting prospect but Georgie makes it fun whilst making you feel that you can really dance… it’s a great feeling. Good for mind, body and soul.
Thank you for the challenging but fun classes!
Mignon French, adult ballet student.
Georgie is an expert dance teacher, who gives just the right level of correction, teaching of ballet vocabulary and explanation. She copes well with the differing abilities within the class and gives time to support, improve and correct each student, at a pace which is right for them.
Helen Davidge, adult ballet student.
Georgie can take a subject as complex and precise as ballet and break it down for all her students to follow, regardless of their experience level. As a ballet novice, I was anxious about being able to keep up in lessons but Georgie guides her students through the routines with knowledge, care and cheer.
Ian Christie, adult ballet student.
Georgie is a fantastic teacher and has given me so much confidence returning to ballet as an adult, after several years of doing no exercise at all!
Georgie is truly motivating and makes you instantly feel at ease. She provides constructive feedback on your positioning and dancing which subsequently helps you to develop at your own pace. She is also able to adapt her lessons according to the standard of everyone in the class and will always show you adaptations of exercises if you need them easier or harder.
Georgie is so enthusiastic and always takes part in the classes. This is really helpful if you have missed sessions or need prompting throughout the exercise – which is often the case for me!
I would definitely recommend Georgie as a teacher for anyone.
Kirsty Hayden-Watts, adult ballet student.
My daughter loves ballet with Miss Georgie. I tried to get her to start doing ballet for years and she was never interested. But since starting classes with Miss Georgie she is really enjoying finding out about ballet and working at getting the movements correct.
Maria Gilmour, mother of 13-year-old student Freya.
My daughter is always full of praise for Miss Georgie as a teacher. There is nothing better than seeing your child coming out of a lesson happy and interested in what she has been learning. It makes me a very happy mum that she is loving ballet with Miss Georgie so much.
Jane Pegram, mother of 13-year-old student Jessica.
Miss Georgie has helped me find my passion for ballet. I love ballet and always will and Miss Georgie has been a massive part of that. She is a lovely teacher and always finds funny and helpful ways to help her students.
Jessica Pegram, 13-year-old student.
Classes with Miss Georgie helped me gain confidence that I have carried through my dance life since I first met her.
Darcy Bull, 17-year-old student.
Miss Georgie has taught me, brought me on and benefited me as a dancer – and not just in ballet but in my disco freestyle dancing as well. Miss Georgie, I would like to say that coming to your class is lovely: thank you for teaching me!
Jude Fullman, 15-year-old student.
I have found a little diamond in Georgie. She has a love for ballet that she passes on to the children. She has a way of encouraging them to do the best that they can, and they have blossomed into beautiful dancers who have a wonderful appreciation of the ballet world.
Miss Georgie is a graceful, experienced dancer who has graduated with a First from the Royal Academy of Dance. She has great patience and enthusiasm as well as knowledge. Great teachers are really hard to find but we have been blessed and the kids love, and look forward to, her classes.
Melanie Bull, Principal of Platinum Dance Academy.
