It's Teacher Tuesday! Today we are introducing... MISS KEIRSTIN β€πŸ–€

1. What classes/age groups do you teach at CSDS?
I teach the tiny babies in Baby and Me class, I teach the lovely 12 year olds and the very gorgeous 14 year olds. They are all lovely kids and I really enjoy teaching them.

2. What's your favourite style of dance?
Thats a hard one. I love teaching different styles and changing it up. I love musical theatre, commercial Jazz, Tap, lyrical jazz, Contemporary and Irish and of course all of these have their foundations in Classical Ballet. It so lovely watching students when they suddenly understand how ballet fits into their bodies, the look of amazment on their faces is priceless. I also enjoy sharing the knowledge and understanding of how the body moves in my Pilates coaching.

3. What's your favourite thing about being a dance teacher?
Sharing my knowledge and love of the arts with children who are eager to learn. Seeing the new talent come through in each generation and encouraging children to express and enjoy themselves.

4. What's your favourite food, and a food that you hate?
My favourite food is Seafood, especially prawns Lobster and scollops. But not all fish beacuse I hate Anchovies. I actually throw little anchovy tanties if they appear in something I'm not aware of lol yuk yuk yuk!

5. What's one thing you did for fun during lockdown?
We had a log fire, with a spit roast BBQ and toasted marshmallows in the fire.

6. One piece of advice for your students?
Be a sponge. Learn everything you can. Ask as many questions as you can and never close any doors. Keep all opportunities open to yourself. Find the good in every situation and see mistakes as a learning experience.😁😁😁
