Tara Horne

Principal Dance Teacher

Tara started her dancing journey at 2 1/2 years old, training under RAD examiner Mrs Janet Palmer and completing exams in RAD Ballet and ISTD Tap, Modern, National and Classical Greek as well as regularly participating in All England Dance Festivals around the country.

At 16 Tara was accepted in Kilburn College of Dance on a full-time teacher training course and graduated with four associates in ISTD Ballet, Modern, National and Classical Greek. Following this, Tara worked professionally under Belinda King Productions where she worked as a part of a troupe in Europe and the Far East. Although she adored performing, Tara decided that she wanted to teach and so in 1990 she became an assistant teacher at CFDA in Milton Keynes with Sue Coles.

In 2000 Tara moved to Dordon, Tamworth where she created TJH Dance & Fitness. Something that she’s as passionate about now as she was when she opened it over 20 years ago! 

Alisha Veasey-Watts

Assistant Teacher/Performing Arts-Teacher

Alisha was introduced into the performance world from an early age. Over the years she regularly undertook exams in several styles of dance, acting, classical singing and musical theatre and regularly placed in competitions and festivals nationwide.

In 2015 Alisha achieved an LCM Dip and graduated from London College of Music in 2019 with a First Class Ba Hons Musical Theatre. 

She is currently undertaking her P.G.C.E at University College London and is looking forward to continuing to hone her performance craft alongside teaching.
