About Jo Young



I completed my dance training at The Urdang Academy,
a full time Vocational School in Covent Garden, London.

After teaching in various places I then moved to the area and shortly afterwards began teaching Ballet
classes on behalf of Lightwater Leisure Centre, in Surrey, in 1999. Along side teaching and a career in
Children’s Leisure, I gained further qualifications with an HND in Sports Science,
RSA in Exercise to Music
and an NVQ level 3 in Childcare/Playwork.

Then the commitment to my life long ambition of teaching Dance as a full time career began
when, in 2005, The Classical Ballet Centre Surrey was formed with
Lightwater Leisure Centre dance studio as its home.


I am passionate about dance and am fully committed to providing high quality tuition in a safe and
happy learning environment
. With RAD Registered Teacher Status parents can be safe in the
knowledge that their child will be given the opportunity to develop safely
with appropriate learning activities at every stage.
