About Joze

Jo is passionate about sharing her love of dance and is an associate member of the IDTA with qualifications in ballet, jazz and theatrecraft. She believes that dance is for everyone, as well as a fun way to get fit and stay active. Students are always encouraged to be the best they can be, and regardless of age, gender or ability, everyone is part of the same "Team Joze!".

Mummy, its not just a Ballet class, its a Ballet family.
The love and dedication that Jo puts into her job is something that myself and all my friends here at Joze could only dream of doing... ...from Matt Hickie’s leaving speech at the 2017 show (Former Student)
Not only is it an amazing dance school, it is also an amazing family that welcomes everyone. Best years of my life dancing at Joze! Izzy Wood (Former student)
