Back in the Studio!
Gemma is currently on maternity leave and her classes will resume in January 2021
Looking for classes in the Dorset area?
Gemma Olding began her dance training in Wimborne, Dorset, where she became a junior associate with the Royal Ballet. She trained and performed with Ballet Creations, under the wonderful guidance of Richard Slaughter and Ursula Hageli, who were both artists with the Royal Ballet and prolific teachers in their own right. Gemma went on to graduate from Poole and Bournemouth College with a triple distinction in contemporary dance and choreography.
She is also a qualified IDTA ballet teacher. She was assistant to the principal of Mainstage Performing Arts creative team in Wimborne, for 5 years where she oversaw the running of ‘Mini Mainstage’ and taught ballet, jazz, adult dance and musical theatre.
Gemma herself has performed in numerous shows, galas and pantomimes in the Dorset area. She is also very involved with outreach programmes which take dance into local schools and nurseries in Dorset, and thoroughly enjoys being part of the Tappy Toes team.
Gemma covers the Dorset area, including Broadstone, Blandford, Pimperne, Shaftesbury, Stourpaine, Poole, Bournmouth and Wombourne.
