The Team

All of our teaching team learned to dance at Bev-Lyn as children. Some have enjoyed careers as professional dancers. Now as teachers they bring a huge wealth of dance experience and qualifications.

As members of the Royal Academy of Dance, Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance and Spanish Dance Society our teachers are required to attend regular courses to ensure that they keep their skills and knowledge at the highest level. We also run our own in-house training.

Classes are run by experienced, qualified staff and are joined by at least one teaching assistant.

Beverly Matthews—Founder
Beverly began the school in 1964 and still provides teaching and exam coaching for our next generation of dancers and teachers.

Alison Williams
“I started dancing at Bev-Lyn when I was 6 and have loved every minute. My favorite has been performing on stage. I have now been a part of the school for 25 years. I hope I can help the children to learn to enjoy their hobby as much as I have”.

Lorraine Beard
“I have been dancing with Bev-Lyn for 28 years. Dancing to me is a great way to relax, keep fit and make lots of good friends but most of all it has enabled me to do the one thing that I love and that is to entertain”.

Jo Wysocki
“I danced with Bev-Lyn until I was 16 when I joined the Royal Air Force. The dancing discipline gave me a good grounding for this. I came back for “The Big 4-oh” show and never left!”

Zena Clemens-Tresidder
“I started at Bev-Lyn when I was three and it is very much a big part of my life.  I still enjoy dancing on stage with the “golden oldies” tap group and love being part of the team!”
