Principal and Teacher
Originally from Leicestershire, Selina began dancing at a young age and achieved great success in dance examinations and competitions throughout her youth. At 16 she trained professionally in Musical Theatre at the esteemed Arts Ed London before embarking on a 10 year career as an Actor, Singer and Dancer. Selina played leading roles in the West End and featured as regular characters for BBC television among other credits. Her industry experience is extensive and diverse.
Selina became a mum in 2012, settled in Abingdon and went in search of new challenges to complement family life. She was thrilled to return to her roots and retrain as a dance teacher and now holds a Diploma in Dance Education in Cecchetti Ballet, Modern Theatre and Tap Dance awarded by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. Selina has been greatly influenced by the school’s founder and principal for over 30 years, Judy Tompsett who she worked alongside before taking over the school in April 2015. Selina is proud to teach all 150 MTSD students and is continually refreshed and delighted by their attitudes and achievements.
