The Tutor
Laura Andrews RAD CBTS RTS is School Principal and Ballet Teacher at Bath School of Dance.  Laura has been a dancer for more than 35 years.  She started dancing aged 3 at the Parkewood School of Dance in Southampton and trained for 15 years under the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus, reaching vocational grade Advanced.  One of Laura’s proudest achievements was securing a place at the Central School of Ballet in London.  She chose an academic path, completing a Business degree at the University of Bath followed by a 17-year career in event management where she was able to use her instinctive organisation skills in running large and high-profile events; a background that has proved valuable in running the School.  Laura continued to dance throughout these years, rediscovering her love of dance as an adult dancer, then making the natural progression from dancer to dance teacher.

Laura is a Registered Teacher with the RAD, having completed the Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies.  The RAD offers one of the highest quality teacher programs and their qualifications are a mark of excellence.  Laura is also a Certified Teacher in Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT), a revolutionary programme that uses fit balls and resistance bands to help train muscle memory.
