I am the founder and owner of Abigail Warburton Stage School which has now been running successfully for 9 years. I have been dancing since the age of four and have a great passion for it. After finishing my A Levels I went on to further my education in dance at Kathleen Davis Stage School/college in Sunderland. Whilst at the college I studied dance, drama and music it was then I decided I wanted to use my knowledge and pass this on to young children and become a dance teacher. As a teacher I aim to encourage all students to thrive in everything they do and give the best possible training to each and every student. All pupils are given the opportunity to take part in an annual show and examinations.
Laura started her dance training at Susan Glover Stage School from the age of 3 and then moved to Abigail Warburton Stage School when we opened in 2006. After her GCSE’s she trained at Calderdale College and Dorothy Stevens gaining a Diploma in dance. Laura specialises in street dance, contemporary and cheerleading and has been teaching at AWSS for the past 8 years.
