Our Faculty

Real People, Real Passions

Our teachers love to teach, and we love our teachers! One of FREE HOUSE’s key and guiding principles is the importance of connection, respect, and support. Our teachers make this a reality for all of our students through co-operation, fueling inspiration, and injecting creativity, artistry, and fun into their lessons.


Teachers at FREE HOUSE are all experienced, professional dance educators and performers, as well as many of them having university training in the arts and education.
