Meet our fantastic teaching staff
My name is Gemma Wright, I am 35 years old and I am the owner, principal and teacher at Dancing Gemz
I have danced since the age of 4 and love any excuse to get on the floor and have a dance.
I have a BA Honors in Dance practice and performance, and am also IDTA and UKA qualified. My dance background extends from Ballet, Tap and Jazz, to Salsa, Ballroom and Latin. With over 16 years teaching experience. In addition to the above I am a licensed Zumba, The Jungle Body, Buggy Beat, Clubbercise and Ballestics instructor.
I strive to give my classes the best by constantly developing and furthering my dance and fitness education, so that I can keep delivering fantastic classes and passing on my extensive knowledge of dance.
I started Zumba classes back in November 2010 and Dancing Gemz quickly followed upon requests for some local dance classes. Dancing Gemz was set up in Broughton in February 2013 and as they say the rest is history. We rapidly grew from one class a week to the timetable we now offer. We are constantly developing and expanding our timetable to give you great classes in your community.
