Linzi G School of Dance was founded in 2010 by Principal Lindsey Grant (now Vickers). Lindsey started teaching adult tap sessions whilst she was completing her teacher training with the IDTA and NATD. On completion of her B.A. Hons Degree in Dance in September 2013, Lindsey expanded her school to include lessons for children, and the school has extensively grown over the last few years. Linzi G School of Dance offers over 30 weekly lessons in Ballet, Tap, Freestyle, Contemporarary, Musical Theatre and Adult DanceFit, and they currently hold a 100% Pass rate for their internationally recognised IDTA and NATD examinations.
Many of Lindsey's students have been successful in auditioning for Dance and Musical Theatre productions within the West Midlands and previously students have dance alongside BBC's Strictly Come Dancing's Pasha Kovalev in his UK touring productions at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. For the past four consecutive years Linzi G School of Dance has also been rated one of the top three dance schools in Wolverhampton by TheBestRated.com. We pride ourselves on offering excellent training and discipline within all subjects to ensure we are providing our pupils with the best opportunities to become our 'Dance Stars' of the future.
As well as dancing for fun and fitness, Lindsey's students look forward to taking part in annual Dance Displays and Community Performances. Pupils have performed as part of Wolverhampton ArtsFest in the Mander Centre, Heath Town International Fun Days and a Cure Leukemia event in the City Centre organised by Wolverhampton Wanderers. They have also been on various Theatre trips and taken part in workshops with cast members from Disney's 'The Lion King,' 'Mamma Mia,' '42nd Street' and 'School of Rock.'
Over the past 8 years Linzi G School of Dance have fundraised in the excess of £10,000 from the proceeds of their annual dance shows. This money has been donated to charities such as Macmillan, Compton Care, New Cross Hospital Neonatal ward, Alzheimer's UK Cure Leukemia and Children in Need. We have also fundraised for St Gregory's Church in Wolverhampton where we rehearse in order to renovate the facilities for our dancers and other hall users.
We are proud to be Team Linzi G and have a wonderful network of dance pupils and parents that make up our Dance Family!
