MLC Dance

MLC Dance is an exciting  Dance School based in Bournemouth on the South Coast.

Michelle formed the school after a very successful teaching career working under the banner of a number of local studios.

‘I’m passionate about my dancing and really wanted to put my own stamp and brand on my business’.   

Focusing on Ballroom, Latin American, and Sequence, I teach from absolute beginner through to the highly experienced. Fundamental, is that the pupil feels at the centre of the lesson, has a great time and comes away knowing that they’ve learnt something.
