EXPERIENCE MARIPOSA STUDIOS
A Dance, Creative, Leisure & Community Space
WHO ARE WE
A letter from our owner
I am so excited to finally be bringing Mariposa Studios to life, I have had this dream for so long and can’t wait to get started!
I have grew up in Linlithgow dancing and went on to study performing arts and arts education at the Young Americans College of Performing Arts in California, USA. I was lucky enough to then tour America, Europe, Japan and the UK with the Company performing and teaching both children and adults from all walks of life, an experience I will never be able to put into words but changed and shaped the person I am today. I would especially like to thank Bill & Robyn Brawley for their support and guidance.
After 5 years with the YA’s I chose to move on and looked to cruising as I had caught the travel bug! I’ve spent the last 3 years working onboard Princess Cruise Lines as a dancer and Assistant Manager. I’ve been so lucky to perform such incredibly diverse shows that pushed every style of my dance. Working beside such talented wonderful performers from all over the world has been a dream.
I am so thankful for the career I have had as a Professional Dancer, but my heart has always been in teaching and choreography. I have for a long time wanted to merge the experience I have gained from working all round the world and my wish to bring it back to the community i’ve grown up in.
I have created Mariposa Studios not as a dance school, but as a dance and creative space. The aim is simple ….. take a class, and enjoy. The classes on offer are open classes, available to anyone who wants to attend and just dance! We will provide classes to push your dance skill, and classes to learn current fresh choreography.
On top of the regular dance classes, we eventually want to offer yoga, pilates, private dance/choreography lessons, private voice & music lessons, a lounge for social groups. Also on offer will be children dance parties, wedding dance lessons for couples, flash mob choreography (for example bridal parties) and well, anything else that you think we can do …. We will! Currently we are working hard to comply with government guidelines, but this lets you know what is to come!
I can’t wait to see this studio take off, and provide the community with a stress free environment to encourage creativity, wellness and passion for the arts.
Lastly, I will never be able to thank my family & friends enough for your help and support, Mariposa Studios has truly been a team effort, you are all amazing and I'm so grateful for you!
I can’t wait to meet you all and get moving!
All my Love
