Rachel Foster

Rachel FosterThe principal and founder of Disco Mad Dancing School.
Dancing has always been my life, but teaching was always my ambition!!!
I started dancing at the tender age of three.  Having danced for over 33 years  I have gained lots of valuble experience in  both performing and teaching.  I’m proud to say that I have 20 years plus teaching experience under my belt. Over the years I have taught ballet, tap, modern,  disco freestyle, slow dance, rock ‘n’ roll and street, all at local schools. In June 2000 I decided to go it alone and open my own dance school. Disco Mad has been going from strength to strength ever since.

What is Disco Freestyle?

It is the trendiest and most popular form of dance in the UK today. It involves runs, spins, kicks and leaps as well as many other diverse steps and movements with lots of different arm and hand actions. The music can be fast with a good beat or slow and sensuous allowing dancers of all ages to use freedom of expression to enhance their style.

What will Dancing do for you?

To dance is to find expression of oneself, to enjoy life and make friends. Improve strength, coordination, stamina and flexibility. A social skill that will stay with you for life! Good cardiovascular exercise, dance regularly and it will help keep your heart fit and keep you trim. Dance is a way of exploring who you are.
