Rosie Parker RAD RTS, AIDTA Ballet, AIDTA Tap.
After starting classical ballet, modern and tap aged three in London, a family move to Warwickshire led Miss Parker to begin ballet classes with Mrs Edwina Norris at the then “Rutleigh Norris Ballet School”. From a young age her wish was to emulate and follow the high standard of teaching and work ethos offered by Mrs. Norris and her staff. Miss Parker completed all RAD ballet Grades with Distinction and continued to pass the Vocational Grades, ultimately achieving her Advanced 1 certificate whilst also continuing to study Tap and Contemporary Dance.
After enrolling with the Royal Academy of Dance onto their two-year Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies, Miss Parker’s ambition to become a Teacher within the Rutleigh Norris faculty became reality in 2010. She has subsequently completed two further teaching certificates with the IDTA (awarded with Distinction) allowing her to teach Tap to a high standard. She also holds the IDTA’s Anatomy and Physiology Diploma.
In 2016 she took over as Principal of Rutleigh Norris following the retirement of Mrs. Norris. Her passion for dance and the serious pursuit of excellence is paramount in all her teaching and she is delighted to share her knowledge with our students at MIDAS.
Away from the dance school, Miss Rosie is enjoying renovating her new home with her fiancé, going on countryside walks and spending time with her three lovely cats.
