What do we do?
This is the professional hub of dance tutor Emma Weir and is designed to bring together the network of classes, courses and partnership organisations that her teaching is connected to.
Emma's main projects are listed on this page but if you are interested in a different dance or education service then contact her at: 
Other services have previously included:
  • Writing articles and reviews for dance publications.
  • Providing choreography for children's television.
  • Teaching for schools (extra curricular clubs, sports week / activity days, PPA cover, PE lesson content and more).
More about Emma's professional history can be found on the 'About' page. If you have any queries about Emma's first school, the Albany Dance Academy, please see their Facebook page: as Emma is based solely in London now and is no longer involved with the Aldershot classes.
