Kerry Chilvers

Kerry started dancing at the age of 6 with the Hawkes school of dancing, at 21 she moved to Footsteps stage school where she completed her first associate in Tap. Kerry went on to open Shuffles School of Dance in October 2001. Shuffles was only ever going to run on a Saturday morning, however soon the classes were full and Kerry had to start more classes during the week to cope with the demand. Shuffles now runs on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, with the timetable growing all the time, this year has seen the introduction of new street dance classes, cheerleading and now gymnastic dance. Kerry also now trains other dance teachers in Tap, Theatre Craft and ballet and can boast excellent exam results at all levels. Kerry now trains under Miss Gout (current president elect with the International Dance Teachers' Association) and hopes one day to go on to become an examiner herself.
