Mrs Helen Brewer
Mrs.Helen Brewer is a registered teacher for the Royal Academy of Dance and began teaching for Stephanie Ledger in 1987.
Training at the Hammond school Chester, she went on to perform professionally with ‘Link Up’ Dance and Theatre Company in London. During this time she developed a strong interest in teaching dance to students with special needs. She taught visually impaired students for the Royal Opera House Education Department and led workshops for deaf children at Sadlers Wells. For many years Helen also led the Special Needs Dance Project at the Royal Academy of Dance. She currently remains responsible for dance at Weatherfield Academy in Dunstable.
As well as teaching for Stephanie Ledger, Helen has taught for 25 years at the Louise Sheaves School of dance in Harpenden, where she pioneered boys only classes and helped develop a strong Vocational level department. She was co-director of Harpenden Summer Dance School from 2005-2015, and also mentors trainee teachers as part of the Royal Academy of Dance certificate of Ballet Studies.
Helen is very proud to be taking over the Stephanie Ledger School and thanks the staff, parents and pupils for their continued support in the transition to Brewer Dance Academy.
As well as our teachers, we are very lucky to call upon a team of fantastic pianists who provide live music for all of our classes. This enables the students to develop their musicality and improvisation skills and is unrivalled by teaching to recorded music.
All relevant members of staff have enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks.
