Nikki Eadie trained at the Marilyn Harris School of Dance in Wolverhampton and completed her teacher training there in 1993.
Her ambition was actually to dance as a profession dancer and gaining teaching certificates were to fall back on in later life but whilst training as a dance teacher she gained teaching posts at several RAD dance schools in Birmingham and Wolverhampton and gained great experience whilst teaching for a RAD examiner.
She quickly realised that teaching children dance was her true calling in life. After gaining Registered Teacher status with the RAD and ISTD she decided to dedicate her life the teaching of dance and not performing.
As a child she took part in dance festivals around the West Midlands and appeared in four professional pantomimes at the Grand Theatre alongside stars such as Max Boyce, John Inman, Jessica Martin, Jimmy Cricket, Little and Large, Darna and Les Dennis to name a few.
She held Dance Lecturer post at the City of Wolverhampton Collage for 10 years within the Performing Arts Department where she taught on the 'National Diploma in Performing Arts'. During this time she also taught at 3 other private dance schools in Wolverhampton and Birmingham.
Miss Eadie also has taught Ballet and Modern as a Peripatetic teacher at Chase Academy in Cannock for 13 years.
After gaining a total of 20 years dance teaching experience she finally decided that in March 2012 she would start her own dance school building it up from Preschool.
With the love the enthusiasm she has for teaching dance along with the dedication and determination to run a high standard service and successful school Miss Eadie would like to welcome you share her love for dance.
At Tip Toes Dance Academy it is my wish that every class delivers not only good teaching and learning but that the children are motivated to develop new skills through the basic techniques of Ballet, Tap and Modern, whilst having fun.
The emphasis within each class is on developing creativity and co - ordination.
Dance enables children to be active through movement and music and is wonderful at promoting interaction with other children from a young age.
Being part of a dance class is a wonderful way to encourage independence away from parents and in improving confidence and self awareness.
As a Mum of two small children myself, I understand how important to find a nice teacher who will deliver a good and high standard of teaching and help your child develop and reach his/her potential.
Please don't hesitate to call me for more information on any of my classes and feel free to drop in on any class and see for yourself my dance classes in action.
Parents are encouraged to stay in the Pre School and Early Years classes.
As the children get older, parents are not required to stay within the dance studio and sometimes it is better that the children are left and collected at the end of the lesson.
I do not mind parents watching, but It is nice to invite Parents/Carer's, Family and Friends to a presentation day on the last lesson of each half term.
