The next hirer to face the interview questions is Belinda! BDA classes make up a lot of the dance classes run from the studio so most of our blog readers will know Belinda or will have definitely seen the logo around! Read on below!
Hi everyone, my name is Belinda from Belinda's Dance Academy
Hi Belinda! Can you start us off with a fun fact about you?
I don't like fish or mushrooms- and I can recite the alphabet backwards!
We will have to hear that soon! Ok time for a couple of quickfire questions… Any hobbies outside of the studio?
I like to take part in a yoga class, really want to get back into horse riding and rollerblading- and love to loose myself in a good book :)
Nooooo... have got the time- would love a unicorn 🦄
Cheesy stuff- fav song 'Chesney Hawkes the one and only' (even managed to include a disco version in the last show!)
Chocolate of course :)
Fantastic! Ok back to business! What does BDA offer at Julie’s Dance Studio
Belinda's dance academy offer classes at various days/ times at Julies studio in styles including Street/ Disco freestyle / Slow/Stretching/ breakdance/ rock and roll! Our classes start at 18 months and there is no upper age limit... there's something for everyone :)
That’s great! So what are the benefits of dancing with BDA?
Fitness* Friendship and FUN!
As well as learning current dance styles, fantastic teachers , and a chance to take part in exams, shows and competitions
Why did you choose to hold classes here at JDStudio?
I was with Julie the day she discovered the studio...., it was just 'meant to be'
A building with 3 gorgeous studios, mirrors, sprung floors, safe, friendly... and it has a heart? What's not to love?
I wish I'd been taught in a place like this…
Wow so you have been here the whole time then?
Since the beginning... and proud to have helped it grow....
Awh that’s lovely. What sets the studio apart from other locations?
Julie cares about each and every person that comes through the doors, from the long term hirers to the person taking their first class.... it feels like a 2nd home for many :) Having the majority of Belinda’s Dance Academy classes at Julie’s Studio has made it grow and give the school a real 'family' feel
Sweet! Can you tell us a fun story from the Studio? You must have so many memories!
Every class is fun!!! Will have a think about this..... my Team 'Magic Stars' and group 'X-plosive' usually get me giggling 😜
Ok let us know when you come up with the best fun story! Anyone you would like to thank?
BDA is approaching its 23rd birthday!!!
This would have never happened without tons of help , fantastic loyal dancers and amazing teachers along the way, especially our current ones Julie, Amy and Jenna who I'm proud to call my best friends too! ❤
Any messages for our blog readers?
Please come and try a class! Your first one is FREE and you get to pay as you go... you only ever pay for what you do.... I was a shy child and found something in dance! A love of it to last a lifetime, and really hope you do too xxxx
