Fidgety Feet is run by Aviva Epstein who is a passionate dancer and mum of three. She is joined by Charlotte Hough and Mary Connolly who also run classes.
Aviva has always had a passion for performing and has been lucky enough to experience a wide range of disciplines professionally, from years of classical dance training to musical theatre and even touring with a circus.
She is the West Wiltshire Area Representative for Dance Notes, and gets involved in writing lesson plans for schools and giving teachers a helping hand to teach dance effectively.
Aviva lives in a little village outside of Bath with her husband and 3 children who are a constant source of inspiration.
“I feel very lucky that I can combine my passions and am very proud of Fidgety Feet. Teaching Fidgety Feet always keeps me on my toes and I am constantly amazed by the creativity and imaginations of the children who attend our classes.”
Charlotte has danced since she was 3 and has completed every exam in Ballet, Tap and Modern from there she received a Musical Theatre Degree from London.
She has completed her Ballet teacher training and is also a qualified primary school teacher.
Charlotte now lives with her husband and two little boys in Bradford on Avon and is super excited to be given the opportunity to teach with Fidgety Feet.
“It is a perfect job, using all my years of qualifications and experience to inspire little people, spark their imaginations and turn dance and drama into a magical adventure for everyone!” Charlotte
Mary, through her many years’ experience as a Primary teacher, particularly enjoyed using both music and drama to ignite children’s imaginations for storytelling and writing.
She has a keen interest in music and is classically trained in flute, piano and voice and enjoys playing regularly in a local wind quintet. She is passionate about the benefits of music upon the learning and development of young children and is excited about exploring this further.
Mary lives in Bradford on Avon with her partner and her two children. She is looking forward to an adventure with Fidgety Feet!
