Double Twist Dance is a lyrical, contemporary and ballet school for young people ages 3–17. Established 2013 in Stratford, London it is now run at Forest Gate. Our dance school is run and choreographed by professional dance teachers Emma Levene and her assistant Emma Clandon.
They have been professionally trained in all dance styles, which enables them to offer such an extensive range. Both women have a strong passion for teaching dance and performing. They are motivated by inspiring new young dancers to experience the true buzz that dancing provides. Our dance school is truly unique and very different from the mainstream classes that are available out there in our industry at the moment. We are not just about teaching dance styles, techniques, and choreography, which of course are all extremely important. We are also committed to developing the ability to tell moving and engaging stories by using our bodies.
