Michele Pope of Studio Of Dance

At the early age of five, Michele’s mom enrolled her into a classical ballet class – and that’s how it all started.

Michele has been running a successful dance studio for 27 years, and has two studios in Padfield Park along with the newly opened studio in Hillcrest at 2a Hudson Bennett Crescent. With highly qualified teachers who desire to pull out the best in each pupil, all ages from three upwards can be taught Classical Ballet, Modern Jazz, Hip Hop, Solo Latin, Paris floor barre and Tap.

“For me dance is so much more than just movement. It allows the children to set challenges, be creative thinkers, explore boundaries physically and emotionally and be a part of a dance family,” says Michele – who is married to Ryno du Preez and has a daughter Zoack who shares her love for dance.

Appealing to everyone, from the little girl who dreams of becoming a ballerina to an adult who wants to reawaken his or her love of movement, Michele says she is privileged to have a pianist, Irene Candy, onboard and studios where pupils can feel it is a home away from home and are able to truly give their best in a professional yet loving environment.
