“Hello! And a very warm welcome. I’m so happy you are here and considering First Position as part of your son or daughter’s dance journey…
We are a Bournemouth based dance school working with children age 2 right up to early adulthood. Our core classes are in RAD Ballet & ISTD Modern, which help your child to develop a high level of dance technique.
At First Position, children (and parents) become immersed in a wonderful and down-to-earth dance family, whilst learning at a high standard and being encouraged to express themselves within a safe & structured environment.
It is my deepest honour to have had the school recognised for this, by being awarded GOLD in our category at the Dance School of the Year Awards 2016. And it is my personal mission to continue to nurture young children and teenagers to be the best they can be – not only as performers, but as human beings.”

"Natalie has been a fantastic teacher and mentor to me, highly knowledgeable in both technique and performance style. She always reiterated that correct technique was very important, but so was personal style and performance. Due to my high-quality training with her, I was well prepared for the step up when I started at London Studio Centre and her advice and help continues even now. I appreciate all her wisdom and I am forever grateful for everything she taught me."Hattie Palfrey
