Phoebe White

Commerical, ballet, modern and tap teacher

Phoebe is a performer and choreographer who has dedicated her life to performing since a very young age. Her commitment to the arts allowed her to graduate Addict Dance Academy with a First Class Honours, in 2022. She has developed her sense of style and ability to choreograph over the last few years and has learnt from some of the best in the industry.

She uses dance as self-expression and believes that dance has major impacts on the development of young people. Working on confidence and self-belief is a key part of Phoebe's lessons. She hopes to be able to pass on her experiences to the younger generation.

Phoebe cannot wait to continue working with Prompt Corner and looks forward
