Soul - Dance - Jazz

Suzette Rocca teaches Soul Jazz Dance.

Suzette's first dance lessons were in Flamenco. Her parents were musicians and singers who formed a professional Flamenco music and dance company.

Suzette then went on and trained for 3 years full-time in classical ballet and contemporary dance at The London Studio Centre. She went on to have an exciting ten-year career in professional dance with work that ranged from artistic and experimental to entertaining and commercial.

Towards the end of her time as a professional dancer, Suzette studied Afro-Cuban dance in Havana, Cuba for six months, qualified as a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer and worked within the fitness industry part time, for four years as an instructor and a fitness co-ordinator at the prestigious Cannons in central London. She then took an NVQ level 3 in Arts Development and Teaching.

Suzette is also a Children's Creative Dance Specialist who founded 'Dancing Stories' to develop original, contemporary and relevant material for teaching creative dance to pre-school and primary aged children. More at www.dancingstories.co.uk.

As well as continuing to teach ‘Soul Jazz', Suzette is employed as an action researcher and freelance artist by Creative Partnerships London North.
