Our Founders

Jackie Sanderson

Jackie established Sanderson’s Dance in 1976; this has now grown to be one of the largest dance studios in the UK with three dedicated centres and a strong team of 47 members of staff. She feels passionately that all children should have the opportunity to experience dance no matter what their background and hopes that Primary Dance UK will help to make that a reality.

Sarah Hawthorne

Sarah began working as a dance teacher in 2003 and took her passion for teaching a step further in 2012 when she qualified as a primary teacher; she has since taught across Key Stages 1 and 2 and now combines her passion for dance with her teaching role. She feels that all children should have the opportunity to enjoy dance as part of their education and benefit from the many positive effects it has on both physical and mental wellbeing.
