Lucy wise

Founder, Camp leader, party, club and class instructor.

Lucy has always had a passion for dance and performing! From the age of three, she attended Drusilla Duffill Theatre School, studying many dance genres and participating in local festival competitions and productions. In her late teens, she studied A level and BTEC Dance at Central Sussex College and continued to perform in local and community productions. After completion, Lucy went on to achieve a Diploma in dance education at the Deborah Lamb Theatre School and currently teaches dance across Sussex to children and adults of all ages. Lucy launched ‘Zumba with Lucy’ in 2016 and teaches several classes per week within the West Sussex area. To the Beat was launched in 2018 to give children the opportunity to dance throughout the year- not just in term times and it has continued to grow into weekly classes, after-school clubs, parties and much much more!  Lucy loves every aspect of her work as she explains that ‘teaching dance is such a rewarding job!’.

Agnes 

After school club instructor 

Agnes started dancing at the age of 4 at Drusilla Duffill Theatre School in Burgess Hill. Agnes studied ISTD Ballet, Modern, and Tap completing vocational level grades across all genres. She then went on to attend Sussex University where she completed a degree in Neuroscience. At University, Agnes took up competitive cheerleading and competed at a regional and national level for 6 years. During this time, she developed a keen interest in the acro and tumbling side of the sport and now also teaches Acrobatic Arts which fuses these acrobatic moves artistically with dance. Agnes loves dancing and teaching and loves passing on her knowledge and passion to the next generation.
