Dance teacher caters for all with her new classes
A LOCAL dance teacher, who has performed with Prince Harry's girlfriend Cressida Bonas in London, is planning to teach both disabled and non-disabled people dance moves in New Ross.
Becci Whelan (23), of Charlton Hill, recently completed a one year post-graduate diploma in dance studies at the renowned Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, which is the only conservatoire of its kind in the UK.
While in London Becci performed in 'Veneer' by the well-known Ali Curtis Jones school, London. During her time on the project she performed with Ms Bonas. Becci started training professionally at the age of 17 where she studied multiple dance genres at Sallynoggin VEC for two years. In 2008 she established her dance school 2 Many Dance Moves, based in New Ross at St Mary's Youth Centre, at Nunnery Lane. Combining creativity and technical dance training, Becci is starting classes this week.
'I can facilitate non disabled and disabled movers. I work with New Ross Community Workshop and was involved with the Arts Alive project with community workshops from across the South East in Enniscorthy,' she said.
Becci, who also does work for Wexford Local Development, has taught classes and workshops for primary and secondary schools across the country and worked on multiple projects with Waterford and Wexford County Council, Wexford Local Development, South-West Wexford school completion programme, Myriad Dance, and more.
On a home visit in October 2012 she was a performer in a site specific performance "Crackd" in Rowe Street Gallery, Wexford by Myriad Dance.
