Hi, my name is Helen Patterson. Dance and fitness have always been a huge part of my life and I consider myself really lucky to be able to earn a living out of something I enjoy doing so much. I have a BA Hons in Dance and a PGCE in Dance and have taught dance within the education and private sector for the last ten years. Having been the Head of Dance for eight years in two secondary schools I decided to explore other dance ventures after having children, which led me to create The DanceIT Group. I still teach dance in education part-time at a local secondary school.

I qualified as an exercise to music Instructor in 1995 and have taught aerobic and dance aerobic classes within the community ever since. In 2010 I became licensed to teach Zumba® and this has given me the opportunity to enhance my skills in Latin styles which I have always loved as a hobby. During my teaching career I have established and led two successful dance departments, presented aerobic training courses, led dance summer schools, directed shows, led community dance events and written fitness programmes for cruise ship companies. I have brought all of my experiences and skills together to create The DanceIT Group. My motto is Dance and enhance your life. Dance in all its forms has certainly enhanced my life and I hope that I can help to enhance the lives of others by offering fun and inspiring classes.

I am fully insured and have an enhanced CRB check.
