Freedom and Form provides a high standard of dance training with the option to follow an examinations path, however this is not compulsory. We want our students to come and have fun with us! Our staff are enthusiastic and passionate and love to see this passed on to our pupils. We produce a fabulous school show every 2 years at The Brunton Theatre and can be regularly found performing in charity events in our local area, let us know if you have something coming up. Our studio is well equipped with mirrors and ballet barres and is also open to external rentals, just get in touch for availability.
R.A.D, R.T.S, A.I.S.T.D (Modern Theatre and Tap)
Jenna started dancing at the age of 3 studying the core subjects of Ballet, Modern, Tap and Jazz. At age 17 she went on to train at Dance for All Theatre School in Edinburgh where she completed the 3-year course in Professional Stage Dance. She gained her vocational exams with R.A.D. and I.S.T.D. which led toward completing her teaching qualifications with both associations in the genres of Ballet, Modern Theatre and Tap.
Jenna went on to dance for a number of different companies in Pantomime, Fringe shows and tours all the while putting her teaching qualifications to good use at dance schools in Edinburgh, East and West Lothian and Fife. Jenna opened Freedom and Form Dance Training in 2013.

Despite starting dance at the late age of 16, Kirsty became a student of Jenna’s and achieved her RAD exams from Gd.4-8 and higher in later years. Kirsty was accepted onto a full time training course at 18 and packed a lot in to a short amount of time. Kirsty left her training with a HND in Professional Stage and a BA Hons in Dance and joined Freedom and Form as an assistant teacher. Kirsty completed the R.A.D C.B.T.S scheme and is a fully qualified and registered R.A.D teacher. Kirsty is also our qualified Acrobatic Arts instructor. Kirsty loves seeing the hard work and enthusiasm that Freedom and Form students show throughout the year and hopes to pass on her knowledge and passion for dance to them in the years to come.
