Barbara Started her teaching career in Surrey and moved to Nottingham when she was 18. Shortly after moving here she opened the IBC School of Dancing in Long Eaton.
The school has had many successes throughout the 40 years it has been open. Many of the pupils have competed in the All England dance competitions gained by a qualifying mark. Many have also been nominated to enter the annual IDTA dance awards.
Numerous trophies line the studio shelves won by pupils at local dance festivals and many many pupils have certificates and medals achieved through the IDTA examination system.
5 of the local dancing school principal teachers have been trained by Barbara and some still continue to receive professional training and support from her.
Sessions for pupils to take grades and medal examination are available 4 times a year at the studio.
As well as teaching dance Barbara is a remedial/sports massage therapist. The understanding of the body mechanics for dance and treating injuries complement each other well.
