CARLIE Heldoorn made her dream come true in July last year when she opened Turning Pointe Dance Co.
"It has always been my dream to open my own dance school specialising in RAD Classical ballet," she said. "We also offer, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, modern/lyrical, acrobatics, pilates, ladies ballet, tiny ballerinas, petite pointers, Latino blast cardio fitness, punchfit boxing fitness, and troupe."
The studio specialises in classical ballet using the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, which has more than 13,000 members across 83 countries.
"Turning Pointe Dance Co aims to encourage confidence, self esteem and technique," Ms Heldoorn said. "Our highly trained and qualified staff offer a safe and nurturing environment, placing emphasis on fun and enjoyment while developing technical ability and performance skills."
After many years travelling the world performing, MS Heldoorn said she longed to share her love of dance.
"As a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dance, my love of ballet inspired me to open my own dance school with the focus strongly on classical technique and performance," she said. "Our enrolment day is on Saturday, January 18, from 10am to 1pm at the studio."
Details: Turning Pointe Dance Co is at Unit 9B, 9 Lyn Parade, Prestons.
