She greatly enjoys helping out with our Saturday Ballet classes and offers great support and encouragement to all of our little students. Charlotte is a hard working and talented dancer who won an award for the highest marks achieved across the entire exam board for her Grade 1 Ballet exam. She also recently received a distinction in her Grade 2 Exam and is excited to have started Grade 3.

Helping other children find enjoyment in dance is also a great source of happiness for Charlotte.
