I began dancing with the NATD as a child, taught by Elizabeth Chamberlain FNATD. In 2000 Elizabeth retired and the school became the Claire Dobinson School of Dancing.
Over the last 20 years I have had the honour of examining both Contemporary and Gymnastic Dance for the NATD and am now a committee member for both of these genres.
I was a founding member of the Gymnastic Dance syllabus and I am also a member of the North Midlands Theatrical Committee. I regularly teach Contemporary Diploma courses on behalf of the NATD at my studios in Derbyshire, which I thoroughly enjoy and feel privileged to teach.
Positions Held: Theatrical branch examiner, North Midlands Theatrical area committee member, Contemporary committee member, Gymnastic committee member
