A word from our coaches

Miss Holly

My name is Holly Rochelle Williams, 29 years old with a passion I have created a career from, and built a business around.

I began dancing at the age of three and haven’t stopped since. Training began at Sutcliffe school of dance in Longridge, working through the IDTA grades in ballet, contemporary modern jazz and tap. This progression continued and upon leaving high school, I continued to study at Runshaw College for two years gaining a diploma in performing arts and an A level in Dance.

To further my career and development, I studied further at Phil Winston’s TheatreWorks where i gained the knowledge and technique to further myself in the dance industry. Achieving two further diploma’s in dance teaching (ballet and contemporary modern jazz).

Since leaving Phil Winstons I have worked professionally with numerous choreographers as a professional dancer/performer in many shows around the world.

At 23 I decided to make a leap of faith, developing my own dance school, ‘HR DanceWorks’. Six years on, HR Danceworks trains 6 days a week, 6 hours a day with two studios running simultaneously.

I teach; Ballet, Contemporary Modern Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Commercial, Acro, Musical Theatre, Technique class, Strength and Flexibility class, Heel Class, Dance Fitness and Level 3 Diploma for Dance Teaching Assistants.

With a steady business I now look again at building my knowledge even further in dance and developing my career once more.

I have set myself personal objectives, that in the next five years I plan to become an examiner within the IDTA.

I have recently passed licentiate Modern Jazz and level 4 Tap, both with distinction, now currently working towards licentiate in ballet, tap & theatre craft.

I am honoured by each and every family who entrust me with the development of their young dancer at such early stages in their dance development.
