Certified Dance Professional

Hi, I’m Ginnette Brookes, a dance teacher with more than 20 years experience, lets get moving


Introducing Ginnette

Associate of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance ( ISTD ) , Dip L.C.D.D.

Royal Academy of Dance Silver Swans Licensee

I have always wanted to dance …
I started at the age of two and I haven’t stopped since. I always knew this was my passion, I love its freedom and the ability to lose yourself in music and express yourself too. Teaching became my goal very early on.
My initial training was in Aberystwyth with Clare Thomas A.R.A.D studying Ballet, Modern and Tap. At 18 with teaching in my sights having been inspired by my own teacher I studied for my professional qualifications at the London College of Dance and Drama at the time it was the official teacher training college of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance.
The course was a three year comprehensive study of many dance styles including Ballet, Modern, Tap, Ballroom, Contemporary, Dance Notation, Dance education and teaching practice in the State and Private Education systems. It gave me the thorough grounding and experiencethat I still draw on today.
My teaching experience has spanned over more than 25 years and has been many and varied. I have taught for many years at private dance schools in Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, I worked for the education authority in Northamptonshire alongside their Dance Animateur to develop dance offers in primary and secondary schools.
I have been fortunate enough to have seen my choreography on stage at The Bowen West Theatre, Bedford, The Royal Derngate Theatre in Northampton and De Montfort Hall in Leicester choreography being one of my other passions in dance!
I enjoyed nearly 10 years teaching at Dupont Dance Stage School in Leicester where my classes include Pre School Ballet and Tap, Adult Ballet, Modern and Classical Greek Dance. In all the schools I have taught at I have achieved 100% pass rate for exams entered.
Since 2017 I have worked as a dance coach for Ultra Ballroom. This is a company that works alongside Cancer Research UK to provide people with 8 weeks free training and the opportunity to perform a ballroom dance at a black tie Strictly style event, whilst doing this the participants gain sponsorship for Cancer Research UK.
The events that I have been involved in (Leicester and Chesterfield) have raised over £55,000 for CRUK. Ultra Events have raised more than £20 million to date.
And what about when I don’t dance?
As I have said my passion is dance and teaching I willingly let it consume a good deal of my time not just teaching but preparing,
choosing music and coming up with new ideas but when I am not doing that I love to read, walk in the countryside and swim (I also like to do nothing, go shopping and watch a crime drama too – I am not on the go all the time.!!!) Time out is so very important and being someone who likes to be on the go all the time relaxation has to be worked at … I am getting there though.

How would I describe my teaching style and Classes?
Relaxed, Fun, rewarding! I hope my dancers would agree. My basis for teaching is encouragement fun and above all inspiring people to keep coming and enjoying the enormous benefits of dance.

Don’t take my word for it …

“Joyous! Best word for Ginnette’s classes. She’s full of enthusiasm, positivity and encouragement; her joy in dance is infectious.”

“I have attended quite a lot of Ginettes classes. I just have the best time when I am there as I just love dancing and always have. During lockdown I had some hard days but when I did the zoom classes they just lifted my spirits completely and it is all down to our fabulous teacher Ginette. A true inspiration to each and every one of us who attends the class. “

    Ginnette makes all of the moves really easy to understand, I feel fitter, I have lost weight and I’ve made friends, can’t recommend highly enough!


    I wasn’t sure that dance classes were for me, but I was encouraged to go by a friend and I needn’t have worried, thoroughly enjoyable and although there are a range of abilities, you can go at your own pace, which is good for me!


    Buzzing, just buzzing, thank you Ginnette, I will recommend you to all of my friends, can’t wait to come back and see you again next week, keep dancing!
