Elly-Ann Pritchard – dance teacher supremo!

Elly-Ann taught us Ballroom, Latin, New Vogue and Classical Sequence dancing over a number of years while she was living in Wellington. We found her to be:
• Fun
• Enthusiastic
• Encouraging
• She taught at the level we were currently at and lifted our dancing standard to a whole new level.
• Moreover, she is a qualified Classical Sequence tutor and there are very few such tutors in New Zealand.

We endorse her as a brilliant mentor, encourager and tutor and her pupils are very lucky to have her.
