Funky Feet Academy teaches Dance & Singing classes to both Girls & Boys.

At Funky Feet Academy we strongly believe that all students should be given praise and encouragement to help them gain self confidence and feel part of our Academy.

We hold an annual Show in which all students have a chance to perform on the stage, this allows parents and relatives the opportunity to see how their children are progressing. We also take part in other community projects. All Teachers hold enhanced CRB disclosures. s.

 

Kirstie Smith- Dance Teacher

I have been dancing all my life. I started at the tender age of 3 years old and haven't looked back. I started working professionally at the age of 8 with my first dancing job at Wimbledon Theatre in there Christmas pantomime with Rod Hull and Emu. I then appeared in Dick Whittington at the London Palladium with Lionel Blair and Jim Davidson, from there I appeared in the first children's Royal Variety Performance again performed at the London Palladium. My next pantomime was Mother Goose at Victoria Palace with John Inman.

I then went into films and had parts in :- The Wild Cats of St Trinians which was great fun
being a naughty school child!! SOS Titanic where I got thrown into a life boat from the ship but got thrown just a little too far and ended up in the sea. The Missionary as a street urchin. Dragon Slayer where once again I was a Street Urchin with blacked out teeth ( I looked lovely)

I have been in various TV adverts (all of them for food). I then stopped working to concentrate on school exams and when I was 16 I trained at Italia Conti Academy Of Performing Arts for 3 years.

Whilst at Italia Conti I was the face of the Heroin Drug advert and had my face plastered on billboards around the country. I left Italia Conti and landed a job touring Portugal's casinos and clubs for 9 months as a showgirl.

I returned home and worked as a dancer in various nightclubs in and around London.

Then decided it was time to keep my feet on solid ground so opened my first Dance School K-Jays School of Dance, I have also been teaching at Yvonne Dearman Academy of Performing Arts for 15 years and hold valid enhanced CRB disclosures.
