She said: “I have been dancing since I was three and am very passionate about it. Dance is something I have always loved doing.

“I have taught dance at schools in Dunstable and I have shared spaces to teach classes across the town.

“It is an absolute dream, at 25, to finally have my own venue. It’s taken a lot of hard work to get it transformed up to standard and I’m proud to be running a studio that will help benefit Dunstable.”

Katie, who studied Dance and Professtional Practice, began teaching dance classes when she was 16.
