Holly-Marie Root

Principal

Holly started as a student at Stage Two Dance Academy from the age of 3 years. Following the N.A.T.D syllabus Holly worked her way through the grades and has undertaken numerous examinations in ballet, tap and modern to an advanced level. Holly was given the opportunity to perform in local stage performances and productions. At the age of 9, Holly attended a weekend class at the The Young Gen (a music and theatre class) for a few years, and performed in several shows at the Civic theatre.

Holly has always had a passion for teaching and at the age of 21 started assisting in all classes at Stage two, gaining knowledge and experience from former teachers Gillian and Sharman, and then went onto take her teaching examinations. In 2005, Holly’s former teachers decided to retire and Holly was given the fantastic opportunity of taking over Stage Two, and has enjoyed teaching ever since.
