Zoe Harwood

Zoë started dancing in Cornwall at the age of 3 and participated in Ballet, Tap, and Modern.

Over the years Zoë competed in lots of festivals winning several medals for her solo dances and also won the lead childrens role, with a touring professional dance company, as a mermaid. At the age of 21, Zoë decided she'd like to become a full time teacher at Harwood Dance, so she studied DDI/DDE in modern and tap, recently gained her Licentiate Modern, and is currently studying for her Licentiate Tap and DDI/DDE Ballet.

In her spare time Zoë enjoys choreographing and performing for local amateur dramatic groups. She has choreographed for CODS and Cotswold Savoyards, and in 2016 she won the NODA Award for Outstanding Choreographer in the South West competing against hundreds of Musical Theatre companies from Tewkesbury to the Channel Islands! In addition to this, she was nominated again in 2017!

Zoë also loves taking part in master dance classes over the UK taught by many West End and Broadway performers, and balances teaching along side being a Mummy to her 1 year old little boy!

About Harwood Dance

Harwood Dance was established over 20 years ago!

We originally started out under the name of 'Leckhampton Tappers', offering tap classes for adults, then after some years we started teaching children. Over the years we have grown and grown and the rest, they say, is history..

Nowadays our dance school focuses on classes in Baleet, Modern, Tap, Jazz and Street taught in a relaxed atmosphere. By teaching our classes without pressure we find we can obtain the best from students of all abilities.

All students are regularly assessed and take the appropriate exams to enable them to progress through the grades, and we pride ourselves on the high standard of our results. We take a personal interest in every students development including their deportment, posture and emotional development whilst ensuring they are taught correctly and safely. This allows our students to always participate in enjoyable classes.

We also offer classes in Pre-School Tap, Modern and Ballet.

For Adults we offer tap for all levels.
