Since Saskia has become a full time dance teacher, sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for dance with her students is her priority.  Her passion for teaching classical ballet is reflected in the success and progress of her students.

Saskia started dancing aged 3 years old.  She begun her professional ballet training at the Royal Ballet Lower School (White Lodge) and continued her training at English National Ballet School.

Age 18 Saskia contracted glandular fever and her performance career was put on hold.  On recovery and returning to dance, she joined Norther Ballet’s Graduate Professional Programme, performing with the company and filming their children’s ballet ‘The Elves and The Shoemaker’ for the BBC.

Saskia’s performance career tragically and prematurely ended due to a hip operation and she moved into teaching.  She gained her Professional Dancer’s Teaching Diploma through the Royal Academy of Dance.

Saskia is one of our most loved teachers due to her fun but encouraging teaching approach.  She is extremely observant and experienced in teaching students online and gives powerful individual corrections that enable significant improvement to our student’s dance practice, and has an excellent knowledge of both RAD and BBO Ballet syllabus at all levels.
