"Where their future is our passion"

Miss Melissa 

Head of Ballet 


Melissa began dancing at the age of 3, at a local ballet school in Hoddesdon training in the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus.

It was assisting in younger classes that made Melissa realise she wanted to teach dance. 

In 2011, she began her ISTD teacher training in the Imperial Classical Ballet and National Dance at Penny Meeking’s Teacher Training College in Royston, Hertfordshire. 

This gave her the opportunity to volunteer at several dance schools in the area, gaining invaluable experience. 

Melissa joined the PHAD team in 2013 and quickly became a firm favourite with the students and has since added other qualifications with the Progressive Ballet Technique training. 

Melissa is also a wonderful teacher to many Adults teaching Ballet and the Progressive Technique providing a space in which they can revisit their youth from their own childhood days of dancing or to begin a new hobby in which they can share the same passion.
