About Theatretrain Bedford
Building Confidence & Training The Next Generation Of Performers…
Hi, I'm Kate!
Hi, I’m Kate! I’m the Company Director here at Theatretrain Bedford, where my job is to ensure your children are enjoying their professional theatre training in a fun and creative way.
I trained at London College of Dance where I attained a BA (Hons). I furthered my training at Roehampton Institute receiving a Diploma in Ballet studies.
I went on to lecture in Higher Education establishments, such at London Studio Centre. Additionally, I operated my own dance schools in Beds and Herts for many years.
I opened Theatretrain Bedford in 2000, which makes the school one of the longest running Centres in the Theatretrain family. Since then, I has been privileged to nurture hundreds of pupils over the years. Watching students blossom is what I love most about working with the pupils.
My team and I are passionate about supporting and encouraging every child. Theatretrain Bedford prides itself on enabling every student to be the best that they can be.
